Folklore Drills For Belly Dance Technique

  • 6Steps


Difficulty: All levels. Workload: Light. Suggested duration: 1 week. If you follow our suggested duration of one week, get ready to invest 1,5 hour per week in your training. But remember, you can always go through this intensive at your own pace. One week is just a suggested structure. Folklore is an important component of belly dance. Very often you may encounter a folkloric section in a mejance or other oriental songs. Also, many belly dance movements are rooted in traditional folklore dances. Let's work on our dance technique, including shimmies and proper posture, through a series of folklore drills. This intensive will cover the basics of such folk styles as Saidi, Kawleeya, Khaliji, and Muwashahat. Each dance tutorial will have a short combo. This intensive consists of four dance tutorials, each 20-mins long: 1. Saidi Edition: Layered Shimmy. Let's learn a Saidi combo while improving our posture and layered shimmy skills! 2. Iraqi Edition: Neck Stretch & Hair Flip. I know that many of you get nervous thinking about all those crazy hair flips, but let's take it easy. In this drill we'll break down a basic Iraqi hair flip, as well as work on typical Iraqi dance steps that you can include in your belly dance shows. 3. Muwashahat Edition: Arabesque. Arabesque is one of the most challenging movements in belly dance that requires a strong core, and good sense of balance. 4. Khaliji Edition: Softness in Your Movements. Relax and feel the groove.
