Mariah's Method of Belly Dance - Class No. 1
This turned out to be a really great class covering a handful of basic bellydance moves applied to the 4/4 Beledi rhythm. Here I emphasize the downbeat and upbeat in counting and how its applied to specific hip movements. I cover some traveling forward, back, side to side, and in a circle foot patterns then add hip variations. Horizontal figure 8's, shoulder shakes and hip twists within the Beledi. All good stuff! A must have lesson for any Bellydance novice. And for Intermediate level dancers who want to get to know my unique format of teaching!
