Learn the second half of Kajira's Level 2 BlackSheep BellyDance Format for American Tribal Style! Nothing on this DVD has been previously recorded. Other BlackSheep BellyDancers assist throughout so you can see how the steps look on a body type closer to your own.
* Any moves or combos with specific cymbal patterns are taught with those patterns. It is assumed you know your basic patterns already and can't wait for more!
* All steps and combos are taught with their cues, so you can learn to lead and follow.
* Everything is in the same order as any of my L2 Certified Teachers and I would teach it personally. This order has been fine-tuned for about 15 years, for a reason: it makes it easier and faster to learn this way, which is always more fun, too!
* Brief review of our Class Prayer/Pranam, or Centering Exercise
* Propellor Turn, both directions
* Vibrational Overlay options for the above, as well as over Figure 8s and Ribcage Circles, with the info needed for you to apply this type of alternating shimmy (not a ¾ shimmy, "vibrations" are 4/4 shimmies) to any move you like if the music calls for it.
