There are so many nuances and complexities in bellydance, it's sometimes hard to figure out where to start. Starting at the feet and working your way up is a much more attainable way to understand and execute movement. It is about working smart, utilizing only the muscles you need.
Nadira will take you through a comprehensive breakdown of technique used in most bellydance movement, show you the best body alignment to get the most out of your dance and methods of layering with optional upgrades. Next you'll learn combinations to spice up your dance and she'll show you how it's all put together in a live performance. Whether you're just beginning or a seasoned professional, you will be challenged with this DVD.

"I have been dancing and teaching for 20 years. Recently I purchased Nadira's DVD, '5-Layers-From The Ground Up", and believe this is one of the very best Belly Dance instructional DVDs in my library. Her quiet, graceful and classy style of teaching is a joy to watch and the material covered is priceless. The instruction is clear, complete and thorough without a lot of philosophical rambling.
She is a beautiful, skilled dancer and a confident teacher. She is a true teacher with a genuine, sincere desire to share her skill and full knowledge of the dance to help advance the student. I recommend this DVD to students at any level!"
