I have introduced to many belly dance rhythms in the past and you will find them on this site under the "Drum solo" category on the top menu of the site so check those out.

This video will cover another rhythm named "Ayub". You will hear what the rhythm sounds like and see what moves best go with it and how to create combos that work for it.

I have done several warm up routines in the past for your general practice and for specific practice to veil, sword, floor work ... etc

This warm up routine is a general one you could do anytime before or after your practice. These are simply some new moves that make up my stretch and warm up routine before my dancing these days that I thought I would hare with you

have fun!


Hi,

The moves in this combo are simple but the transitions could feel challenging to beginners. So give it a shot first and see how you do before you call it "too hard for a beginner" :)

All you need to know is simple front/back figure eights, basic hip lifts and drops and hip kicks. All these moves have been broken down for you in previous basic technique videos, so make sure to check them out if for more details if you need to.

Here are the links of these videos below.

Good luck and have fun!

This is an easy combo but a fun one for a  common rhythm where the strong beat is strong enough to mark with a strong move like a Lebanese drop.

Give it a try and chances you will get it pretty fast even if you are a beginner. Just make sure you know how to do the Lebanese drop and chest shimmies.

See the videos below for these 2 moves if you are a beginner.

Have fun!

This is a common question for more belly dance students once they pass the level for beginner/intermediate.

Now what? what can I do more? what should I learn next? Where should I take my practice? Can I teach? do I want to go Pro? ....

Are you asking yourself these questions?

let's chat ...



We are all constantly looking for ideas and ways to improve our dancing or to make those difficult moves a bit easier to learn.

One of my favorite ways to do this is to use what I like to call simple patterns and shapes to identify moves and create them ... Listen to this Belly Talk to see exactly what I mean.

Let me know what you think and what your ideas are to make the dance learning process easier.

Have fun!



I have done a previous combination I called "The Typewriter" and it's one of my favorites. Check it out here before you try this new combination

>>> Fun belly dance combination: the typewriter

Now check out this combination. All you need to know is simple hip kicks and half turns and of course the Typewriter.

Have fun!

This is a fun and easy combination to do. All you need to know is a basic Jazz knee, 3/4 turn and simple hip drops.

Have fun!

This is a very easy combo and everyone could give it a try as long as you know the basic chest shimmies. So make sure you review the video on the basic chest shimmy technique and other chest shimmy videos listed below:






I have posted several videos in the past introducing different belly dance rhythms along with the basic moves that go best with these rhythms and some ideas for combos you can use with them.

Today, I am introducing a new rhythm known as "Wahda Kabira" or The Big One.

Watch the video to see how the rhythm sounds and how you can dance to it

Have fun!

Hi!

I hope you enjoy this combination as much I do. It is simple yet you need to make sure of course that you know your basic turns or half turns, hip drops and the weight switch concept. So this combination would be more of an intermediate one.

Check out the video and enjoy!

This is a fun combination that requires a bit of concentration :) So focus!

But first, you must know some basic moves: your basic chest lifts and drops and chest shimmies. Chest shimmies tend to be  a bit confusing for most so here are few videos about the basics of chest shimmies, commons mistakes, tips ... etc

Have fun!
