    Finger Cymbals with Ansuya is the premiere finger cymbal video on home video, for beginners. Ansuya thoroughly breaks down each step to go with the four basic rhythms: straight 4, baladi, bolero, and chiftetelli. Each movement is choreographed and explained in such a kind, direct way. Ansuya is the consummate professional, “Playing symbols makes you a musician as well a dancer. So be proud of your participation and the preservation of one of the richest elements of the ancient and sacred art forms of belly dance.” Following Ansuya’s technique break down, she pulls it all together into one final performance that is nothing short of mesmerizing. Grab some friends, some zills, strap em on and you’re all ready to begin your next journey as a belly dancing zill slinger. Also if you watch until the credits you’re treated to a blooper reel of Ansuya singing Donna Summer’s 1983 She Works Hard For The Money. “Until next time, happy dancing.”
