While bellydance is known primarily for isolations of the hips and upper body, solid footwork technique is essential for travel moves and turns, and to maintain a clean body line and ensure that transitions flow confidently and with grace and ease.
Travel Steps, a Movement Catalog presentation, guides you through footwork as both a foundation and a finishing detail, illustrating how elements combine to transform weight changes into full lush bellydance movements.
Packed with information and inspiration to take your dancing to the next level, Travel Steps will both expand your dance vocabulary and strengthen it. Starting with the most basic timing units of ‘step’ and ‘hold,’ Travel Steps leads you through ball-change, step-ball-change, and other sequence variations that create traveling and time marking patterns.
Layered variations include the nuances of accents and counter-twists; traditional hipwork and upper body isolations; and movements for the feet and legs—pivots, hops, heel lifts, knee lifts, arabesques and other leg extensions—danced with grounded bellydance technique that keeps a strong connection to the floor.
