Pops, Locks and Shimmies with Sadie and Kaya
Based on their world-famous workshop series!
SADIE and KAYA wow audiences all over with their Pops, Locks & Shimmies, and in this video they share the techniques and exercises they use to achieve those famous Pops, Locks & Shimmies.
To prepare you to Pop, Lock & Shimmy at your best, SADIE and KAYA start with Range of Motion exercises designed to increase your flexibility, strength, and control. They then explain and demonstrate the technique for each Pop, Lock & Shimmy, including identifying which muscles to use and how to use weight changes to improve your execution and to dance safely.
After you have the technique, SADIE and KAYA lead you through drills to practice and perfect your Pops, Locks & Shimmies. The drills start simple, then increase in complexity to combine Pops, Locks & Shimmies with the Grapevine, Pas das Bourre, Three-Quarter, and more... including turns!
"Now let's add a Shimmy to that!" Because a Belly Dancer just has to shimmy, in each section, SADIE and KAYA show you how to layer Shimmies on those amazing Pops and Locks!
SADIE and KAYA finish their instruction by leading you through a cool-down.
Finally, a dynamic video performance duet by SADIE and KAYA including those famous Pops, Locks & Shimmies!
Running time: 155 minutes
Reviews on this item
Melissa Cruz: This is a great instructional video. Sadie and Kaya, are wonderful instructors. The video is segmented wonderfully and the different view of the movements that Sadie and Kaya demonstrate are very helpful. I would highly recommend this video to belly dancers at all levels.
Carole Dobler: Fabulous! Very enjoyable & challenging material. Well laid out & grouped into chapters focusing on either upper or lower body movements. I really like how Sadie & Kaya explained & broke down the movements. It was very helpful to have one dancer demonstrating from the front while the other dancer demonstrated the movement from the side, for example. I have all of Sadie's instructional videos so I was familiar with her teaching style. This was my first experience with Kaya on an instructional video & she is fantastic! I hope that Kaya will seriously consider releasing more instructional videos (hint!). She has such a great sense of humour & is very professional & encouraging throughout the video. Another plus with this video is you can benefit regardless of your experience in belly dancing. I have been belly dancing for 10 years and still found many of the drills to be a real brain twister! Great investment.
