Why do you belly dance?


Like in everything we do in life, the "why" is much more important than the "what" or "how". We spend so much time describing the belly dance style we do and focus so much energy on how to do every move, combo and choreography ... But we should stop more often and ask the question: why do I want to learn this move? Why do I like this song? Why I want to perform this choreography? ... And above all, why do I bellydance? 

I am curious to know what your answers are. Comment, share and let's re-discover the "why" all over again!

Belly dance floor work: my floor work routine


After posting many technique videos about belly dance floor work, I suggested that you use the moves you learned and develop a floor work routine that guarantees a smooth transition between all the moves you incorporate in your routine.

Many have emailed me asking "what is your floor work routine?"

So here it is :)

Belly dance floor work: different ways to come off the floor


In the beginning of our floor work series, we covered some basic ways to go down to the floor to start your floor work section of your dance.

Once you are done, it is time to figure out how to come up! So let's see some options ...




Belly dance floor work: how to come up from the snake undulation


Once you are completely down on the floor after finishing the snake undulation, you might feel a bit stuck :)

So how do you get out of this possibly painful position? There are few ways to do so. Some are easier than others so pick the one that works best for you body type, injuries, ... etc

Good luck!




Belly dance floor work: Hip twists


Once you find your way at the end of the snake move or floor undulation, coming up from this position or even prior to doing the complete move, there is a half way position that allows to do few other things like the flutter.

Another move you can introduce from this position is the "Hip twist". watch the video below to see what I mean :)

Good luck!



Belly dance floor work: adding the belly flutter at the end of the snake undulation


Before you watch this video, make sure you have watched the 2 videos introducing you to the floor snake undulation: how to get started and how to finish the move 



Once you complete this move, there are few things you can do from the final drop position. One of them is the belly flutter.

Again here, make sure to watch the video about how to do the belly flutter. See the videos below this video! 

Good luck!
