21 Shimmies and 1001 Variations DVD
with Leyla Jouvana and Roland
Now you can learn 21 of The Shimmy Queen's favorite shimmies ~ plus lots of variations ~ from Leyla herself. In this belly dance video Leyla completely breaks down the technique used for each shimmy, including the muscles involved and weight changes. She explains the differences between the shimmies, what makes each shimmy special, and how to match each shimmy to the music. From basic shimmies like the Hip Shimmy and the Egyptian Shimmy, to the advanced layering of the Combined Afro-Vibration Shimmy or the Samba Shimmy, Leyla fully demonstrates each shimmy so you can follow along and perfect your own technique.
Plus, to help you to clearly understand the relationship between the movements and the rhythms, Leyla teaches to exciting rhythms played by her husband Roland, the accomplished drummer. You'll gain a deeper appreciation of the music as well learn some great moves!
