Video Description: In this workshop the effortless and earthy Egyptian style shimmy of classic belly dance is fused with crisp and elegant turns and movements from western dance. We begin with a warm up to activate our brain and bodies. We then learn chainé turns with spotting and arm layers, followed by a detailed breakdown of the Egyptian knee shimmy. Finally we learn a traveling flip turn forward and back with hip locks and upper body layers. These movements are then combined into a drill-able dance combination, ending with a cool down for the hamstrings and quads.

Spotlights, pretty please! by Liberty on 5/17/16

This class has some seriously amazing content. What I love about it: 1. The warm up remarkably leaves me feeling both relaxed and energized. 2. April demystified the chainé turn for my non-ballet body/brain fabulously. 3. This breakdown of the Egyptian shimmy is exactly what I'm looking for to relax my shimmies. 4. I adore the flip turns! The arm layers are a gorgeous addition. Thank you April, and DO! <3 <3 <3

Great class! Super useful teaching tool. I often struggle to explain turns to students because I've been doing them a long time and have stopped thinking about them. Great way to bring back awareness into my own dancing and now I feel better explaining this to my students. Thank you!!!
