Belly Dance Flow ZilsBelly Dance Flow Zils: A Practice for Finger Cymbals 

This workshop is a companion to Zoe's Belly Dance Flow Drill series, focusing on zil or finger cymbal patterns inspired by Jamila Salimpour. The purpose of this workshop is to move beyond mid tempo triplets and challenge dancers with unusual syncopation, fast speeds, and various zil patterns such as longa (or triplets), 337, 3513, running 7s and singles with accents. To increase the challenge and fun, dancers will do this while attempting to layer isolations and travel with different moves. A warm up is recommended before taking this class, or this class may be used in conjunction with Zoe's Belly Dance Flow Drills.

Vintage Inspired Combinations with Finger Cymbals

Presenting the newest class from Zoe Jakes: Vintage Inspired Combinations and Zil Compositions!

Four vintage inspired belly dance combinations are taught that can be done with or without challenging finger cymbal compositions. Everything in the workshop is broken down and drilled, including on-screen notation for finger cymbal pattern reference.

If you need to build your zil technique starting with the basics, you may want to check out other classes on the site such as  Zil-ionaire with Rachel Brice. Enjoy!

 

Vintage Inspired Combinations with Finger CymbalsVintage Inspired Combinations and Zil Compositions

This workshop showcases four vintage inspired combinations that can be done with or without finger cymbals, inspired by the vintage belly dance of the west coast tribal lineage of Jamila Salimpour and Katarina Burda. The stylization is earthy glamour: feet rooted firmly to the floor while executing more modern pops and locks, mixing juicy 70's influenced old school with cutting edge Tribal Fusion vocabulary. Zoe will detail the movement phrases, break down the finger cymbal patterns, and then put them together in a dance based drill. A warm up is strongly recommended before attempting this class.
