Learning bellydance is an amazing personal makeover experience welcoming women of any age, size or shape. It infuses your everyday movement with sensual flair and confidence, helps you rediscover and enjoy the power of femininity and the seductive grace woven by nature into the curves of your body.
This app is a step-by-step bellydance instruction video presented in a continuous movement format. Created by Neon, trend-setting instructor acclaimed for her innovative fast-track method of teaching beginners and her supportive, nurturing style, the program takes you from basic moves to graceful and sensual bellydance combinations through non-stop practice with beautiful uplifting music. Move and dance from the very first step!
The program consists of 48 2-3 min. segments systematically teaching all major types of bellydance steps. Each segment breaks down, explains and drills a basic bellydance move and an easy-to-grasp step sequence that shows how to use it. The movement starts slowly, then progresses to full speed. Neon offers detailed tips and visualisations promoting correct, solid and safe technique from the very start, and carefully cues each move and combination for easy following.
A consistent system of animated onscreen graphics superimposed on Neon's moving image presents dance moves as trajectories following geometric shapes, and effectively interprets movement angles and directions, promoting accelerated learning.
The 48 segments of the program are assembled into 12 sessions - each session is capped with a movement review (a Dance Party section) practicing all the steps and combinations covered in the preceding session.
The 12 sessions cover:
* rhythmic hips and steps (releasing the hips, getting attuned to rhythm)
* bellydance percussive hipwork 1 & 2
* combining bellydance footwork with hipwork
* fluid bellydance hipwork
* combining fluid and percussive hipwork
* upper body moves and accents
* combining fluid hipwork and upper body accents
* easy hipwork combinations
* challenging hipwork combinations
* challenging fluid movements * shimmy
The DVD edition of Bellydance: First Steps for Total Beginners offers an additional 25-minute flow featuring only the Dance Party segments for an advanced beginner practice, and two versions of the entire program: One with music and voice cues, and one with music only for every day practice. Apps and DVD produced by World Dance New York.
Would probably be a really cool app if it had sound, but without any sound, for right now I just want my money back. Not happy.
I don't have any sound. It say go to the website for support, but all it has is more videos.
