Finger Cymbals with Ansuya
Playing finger cymbals (which are also known as zills) is an integral part of the cabaret belly dance performance. In this video, Ansuya teaches you how to play finger cymbals to add musical energy and excitement to your belly dance!
Demonstration & Technique:
Ansuya breaks down each zill pattern into easy-to-follow steps. You will learn specific technique, then pick up the speed as you follow along with the music.
Movements with Finger Cymbals:
Ansuya teaches you basic belly dance movements that go with each zill pattern, then adds the zills to each of these movements. Moving and dancing with zills, in addition to proper technique, is an important part of learning to play your finger cymbals.
Join Ansuya in a practice session playing your finger cymbals. This unique "zill drill" will help you become proficient in playing each zill pattern while dancing, and also teaches transitions from one move and pattern to another.
Ansuya gives a costumed performance, which demonstrates how playing finger cymbals in your dance enhances the very essence of your performance, and brings another dimension of expression to this art form.
