Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Novice bellydancers, as well as those curious about bellydancing who are interested in taking up the form, will be at home with the release Sohaila's Basics to Bellydancing, hosted by the internationally celebrated bellydancer Sohaila. This program offers a primer on various aspects of the titular art form. The thirteen areas covered include proper attire, use of space, posture and stance, poses, hand positioning, arm positioning, arm movements, basic turns and spins, head and face position, basic walk, muscle isolation, and body awareness. At the end of the program, Sohalia brings all the elements together with two bonus performances, to illustrate how it is done most beautifully and effectively.
