Intro to Jamila Format

Learn the basics of finger cymbals and named belly dance steps as defined by Jamila Salimpour.  Stacey breaks down isolation technique and it’s direct application to families of steps that are used as building blocks for combos and choreography.  This style of belly dance helps develop footwork, timing, transitions, and powerful hip work!  No previous experience required.  Experienced students are encouraged to bring finger cymbals as an addition to their practice.  To learn more about Jamila, please visit http://www.salimpourschool.com/legacy/jamila/.
