In this DVD, Zoe demonstrates how the dancer can interpret the rhythm several ways, with fluid movement or sharp percussive accents, using hits, pops, locks, and her trademark spins.
Zoe starts the student off with a warm up she uses regularly in her classes, and integrates drills specifically meant to get the student comfortable with her movement base. In the Drum Solo section, Issam begins with an explanation of the rhythm he is playing, as Zoe will break down with her clear and concise instruction, sometimes adding explanations as to why she chose that particular movement.
Whether you are just learning Tribal Style, or have mastered the art, this DVD will give valuable insight as to new moves and approach to the style.
