This Tribal Fusion class is designed for the beginning belly dancer or anyone looking to revisit and practice some basic belly dance essentials. In this video, we will start by breaking down belly dance posture. Then we’ll work with some basic footwork and traveling hip locks, upper body isolations, and snake arms. Have a mat ready as we’ll begin with a short yoga and Pilates conditioning sequence.
In this Tribal Fusion class, we explore a simple traveling combination and then add arm movements on top. Basic hip and chest movement will also be drilled, with a focus on clean, strong, muscular articulation. A nice, long arm and shoulder drill is included to build strength and stamina for beautiful and graceful arms. We will warm-up and cool-down with a bit of yoga and Pilates so grab your yoga mat as well!
In this belly dance basics class the focus will be on very muscular internal body movements and external traveling moves. After a short full body warm-up you will learn up-to-down and down-to-up-undulations as well as down-to-up hip figure 8’s. Basic hip bumps and twists will also be layered on different foot patterns. All the movements will be combined at the end of class and drilled in an American Cabaret style combination. The class concludes with a short cool down. An excellent class for a beginning student or advanced dancer looking to keep their basics strong.
Tribal Style belly dance is known for its uplifted posture, which supports and carries the body and results in a strong, confident presentation. These pointers breakdown the specifics of posture and explain how great posture can improve dance technique and presentation. This spotlight is from Colette's "Flamenco Inspired Movements for Group Improvisation" workshop.
A short lead and follow improvisation-drill to help you integrate side-to-side undulations, sidewinder, and bodywaves. Get warmed up for this one and jump in! If you need more information about these belly dance movements individually, they are explained in detail in Rachel's Fusion workshop: "Sinuous and Smoky Phrases".
Get your daily dose! The daily dose is a short, efficient practice that has what you need to keep your belly dance technique strong, even if you have a crazy schedule: yoga, drills, a short phrase combination, a focus, and a cool down. This daily dose is part of the Rachel's Fusion "Arabic Shimmy" Series.
This short, yet effective yoga sequence will help you either prepare for belly dance, or can be done as a complete practice. It's gentle, and designed to strengthen the lower back, abdominal muscles, legs, and hips. This spotlight is from Rachel's Tribal Fusion class: "Daily Dose: Arabic Shimmy #2".
