There is a bit of a problem in the bellydance world when it comes to level the classes. As there is no official regulation of any kind every teacher is free to consider that X, Y, Z steps are beginners or advanced.
The movements I included in this bellydance combination are in the range of beginners / intermediate level (hip drop, camel, simple arms and hands) BUT the whole thing become a challenge when it comes to coordinate arms, steps and movements.
When I recorded this video, I was not sure on how to classify it: would it be an intermediate or an advanced level combination? Levels in dance are a very fluid thing.
A COUPLE OF TIPS
- Tip if the combination seems to be very difficult for you: Don’t do the arms and hands. Focus on your feets and movements.
- Tip if the combination is too easy for you: add some challenge by adding a leg release on top of the hip drop and add level changes to the camel.
Less words and more dancing. Here you can see this week’s video. Go for it, give it a try!
I hope you have a good time practising this little combination, and if so, please, leave a comment below sharing your experience. Your comments are the fuel for this space to carry on.
Too difficult for you level? Worry not!
