Lets pretend that 10 dancers are performing the same simple choreography. Even though everyone is doing the same movements, chances are that some would be more magnetic than others. And a few would have that special spark that makes their movements absolutely riveting. That spark - is the topic of this DVD.
With the multi award winning Alimah - we will explore that certain something that pushes a performance beyond just a pretty dance, and into the realm of being an emotional feast.
Most dancers simply study technique and do not explore ways to put emotion behind their movements. Dancing with meaning will help tell a story, and will compel an audience to emotionally react.
Alimah draws on her musical training to help you extract texture and nuance from the music and infuse it into your dancing.
We begin with a healthy helping of tasty and inspiring concepts designed to give your repertoire of movements that special boost. It is followed by an extended flow section that focuses on creative visualization. Then we move on to specific combinations that utilize these unique concepts. Finally, the combinations are strung together to make a dynamic choreography. Plus, there is over 20 minutes of performance footage from the beautifully inspiring Alimah.
A basic understanding of belly dance technique is assumed in this DVD, as the focus is not how to break down the moves, but how to bring them to life. Alimah encourages you to get carried away with your creative inspiration by allowing the choreography to come out a little different each time.
Learn to let go of your inhibition and to flow - wherever the music leads you.
