Video Description: This unusual workshop is actually two classes in one: A fundamentals practice and demonstration, followed by a challenging dance portion.

1) In the first half of this workshop Rachel will detail and practice Datura's fundamental placement for the arms, legs, feet, and full body for Tribal and Tribal Fusion dancers. Next you’ll learn a short sequence that integrates these fundamentals so when practiced regularly they’ll become second nature. This detailed work was created as a reference that you can return to again and again for detail about the fundamentals.

2) In the second half of the workshop, you’ll learn 2 new challenging combinations from Datura’s emerging vocabulary, Arabic Hip Twist variation and Cherry Moon, that include many of these foot and arm positions.

And for the finale!: You and Rachel will play with some lead-and-follow improvisation to get a sense of how to use these combinations in a group improvisation.

I have watched countless YT videos to try and figure out this "Cherry Moon", and this breakdown makes it clear what my body should be doing next. Thanks for this wonderful class and platform to learn your skill and talent!

Building Blocks by Rachel Corona on 5/17/16

Thank you Rachel Brice! I love the way you break down Tribal Fusion positions into their fundamental parts, thus establishing a vocabulary and unlimited opportunity to re-combine parts to create exciting new combinations. Also, thank you for the visual reference material you've made available. I learn best when I can both physically perform an action and read/see/label what is actually happening. As much as I want to charge ahead with faster speeds and more complicated combinations, it is crucial to revisit the fundamentals, and you've made that super easy with this video.

At last! <3 by Elle Newport on 5/16/16

Words cannot express how happy I am to see this material available online! So excited for this whole series -- loved the first installment and I'm sure I will be revisiting it many times! Thank you, Rachel!

forgot to say how awesome it was by Lindsay Calhoun on 5/14/16

forgot to say how awesome the workshop was and thanks for sharing these great techniques!

posture, arms, foot drills by Lindsay Calhoun on 5/14/16

When you get a chance can you break out the sequence portion where the foot, arm, and leg positions are drilled as a separate short drill video? I would consider adding it to a daily playlist separately that way.

Perfect! by Nicole Mann on 5/14/16

Thank you so much for this. This one video answers almost all of the posture questions I have ever had for bellydance teachers. I am soaking all of this up like a sponge! <3 - Nic
