Tribal Fusion Belly Dance - Yoga, Isolations and Drills: A Practice Companion with Rachel Brice will help dance students, regardless of level, to achieve strong and effortless dance movement. You will be given tools that can be incorporated into your daily practice that, if done regularly, will bring flexibility and strong posture to your dancing. The DVD begins with a short Yoga practice to warm up the body and strengthen your core to prepare you for Belly Dance drills. These include: rib cage circles, basic hip and abdominal locks, 3/4 shimmy preparation, undulations down and up, hip circles, Maya and Taxim. We conclude with a chapter on Yoga for flexibility, which will open the body and make Belly Dance movements clean and concise. This practice companion is useful for dancers at all levels, as it completely and safely prepares the body for many of the basic movements in Belly Dance, and was designed to be used every day. The DVD can be viewed with or without instruction. Whether you have 15, 30, or 45 minutes to practice, this DVD can assist you in having a consistent and long-term commitment to your dancing.
