Bellydance Hip-Hop Liquid Fusion

Home > Belly Dance Instruction DVD

D003 Bellydance Lessons DVD - 2 DVD set. Bellydancing classes, belly dance how-to, hip-hop how-to, fusion Belly Dancing Instruction. Bellydance Hip-Hop: Liquid Fusion 2-DVD set blends belly dance with the standing forms of hip-hop, exploring the techniques and the aesthetics of both dance forms. Belly dance movement is highly-controlled and internal, while hip-hop brings to the mix an explosive external energy. Both belly dance and hip-hop share a strong emphasis on isolation. That makes them perfect ingredients for an organic, fun, and edgy fusion. New York-based, trend-setting dance instructor and performer Anasma seamlessly integrates moves from two popular dance forms, belly dance and hip-hop, into a fluid, dynamic dance style, always explaining the original stylistic context of every move and the genre it represents. Anasma breaks down the core dance vocabulary of belly dance and hip-hop, pointing out similarities and differences in the moves they share. She traces the origins of moves popular in Tribal Fusion belly dance which borrows much of its vocabulary and styling from hip-hop. Anasma provides original stylistic context for many Tribal Fusion elements such as popping, locking and strobing, hip-hop-influenced upper body moves like cobra chest circles and sidewinders, hip-hop-style body and arm waves, liquid-style arm patterns, zigzag side floats, and other moves. Anasma builds every move and combination gradually, allowing you to experience the stylistic features that transform belly dance and hip-hop elements into fusion moves. This approach gives you tools for creating your own flavors of the belly dance - hip-hop blend. Anasma's Bellydance Hip-Hop: Liquid Fusion 2-DVD set program consists of three main sections: *Bellydance Hip-Hop - instruction and drills Hip-Hop Bellydance - instruction and drills; Choreography and choreography drills. In the Bellydance Hip-Hop section Anasma explores belly dance core techniques and main movement trajectories, such as lines, circles, figure 8s and shimmies, and infuses them with hip-hop styling by adding the geometry of hip-hop moves and the spatial awareness of hip-hop. In the Hip-Hop Bellydance section, Anasma breaks down hip-hop isolation techniques and explores such hip-hop subgenres as waving, liquid, popping, dimestopping and strobing, mannequin, tutting and gliding-floating, and shows you how they blend with the bellydance vocabulary. For each type of belly dance and hip-hop movement, Anasma teaches a combination that shows you how to fuse each step with moves from the other dance form - for maximum impact. Anasma also provides extensive drills. You can do the drills within the instructional sections, or play all the hip-hop and all the bellydance fusion drills in a row for a non-stop practice and workout. Finally, Anasma puts all the combinations together to create a choreographed belly dance-hip-hop fusion dance. Anasma also performs two structured improvisations demonstrating how you can take the belly dance hip-hop fusion techniques presented in the program to a new level with storytelling. A special section of Anasma's program offers a thorough warmup and strength-building workout. Have fun discovering new ways to layer and mix hip-hop and bellydance. Explore and create. I strongly recommend purchasing Bellydance Hip Hop Liquid Fusion by Anasma. The instruction is world class, sensible, accessable while still being detailed. The photography and production is great with close ups right where they need to be and all the right angles and repetitions to see what you need. The music is complimentary and compelling. It's a two DVD set of over four hours collectively with sections on Bellydance, hip hop and then a choreography. Even if you are not interested in hip hop or liquid or even fusion the bellydance section (the entire first DVD) is absolutely solid and packed with plane, line and shape visualizations that could enhance any bellydancer's form and excecution. The second DVD contains the Hip Hop techniques choreography breakdown, demonstration with and without sectional instruction and performance. I especially liked that she explained the story aspect of her choreography, and introduced the idea of a structured improvisation. Anasma is supremely knowledgeable and playful, and I found this DVD both hard work and tremendous fun. This is the equivalent of a page turner, so you may want to set aside a block of time to indulge in a start to finish workshop type experience; but if you prefer the introduce-learn-master-move on approach with breaks for repetition and internalizing everything is easily accessable through the well designed menu . As a bellydance teacher of many years my students often ask which DVD they should get for at home practice and though I could recommend this or that DVD for a great special focus I would always have to give a caveat about something or another instruction method or distracting element to the production. I am pleased and excited to say this is the first DVD I can recommend wholeheartedly not just to help daily practice but to use as a long term tool to perfect and inspire new personal motion and dance stylings.
