Sizzlin' Torso - Belly Dancing with Ava Fleming DVD
Ava Fleming shows you how to make your ribs do exactly what you want them to.
Moving the ribcage in isolation from - or in coordination with - the hips is the essence of Raqs Sharki. Ribs can move soft and slow, or fast and sharp... but there's more to it than that! The technique a dancer uses to move her body affects how her audience will feel her dancing.
Ava Fleming's signature style is based on relaxation within muscular and skeletal isolations, and weight distribution. All that requires understanding exactly how each movement is created. So Ava teaches muscle identification, with exercises to help you connect to the specific muscles you will use. It also requires correct posture, so Ava gives special emphasis to proper body placement to achieve the desired affects safely and gracefully.
To help you use different "motivators" to create the same movement with different effects, Ava explains and demonstrates: * internal (muscular) and external (skeletal) movement * continuous versus abrupt movement * "gross" and "small" motivators * engaged versus relaxed placement
Ava breaks down how to execute many popular belly dance upper body movements using various motivator techniques - it's the same move but with very different effects! Ava includes fun combinations and plenty of drilling so you'll really feel why an "internal" rib slide looks very different from an "external" rib slide.
More than just technique, by giving you greater awareness of how you dance, Ava's movement theory will increase your dance vocabulary, add juiciness to your fluid curves, and crisp precision to your accents. You'll discover and create more intricate layers in your dance, so you- and your audience - will enjoy your dancing even more!
Plus, an amazing performance by Ava!
