Bellydance Hip Hop Liquid Fusion 2 DVD set blends bellydance with the standing forms of hip hop, exploring the techniques and the aesthetics of both dance forms.
New York based, trend setting dance instructor and performer Anasma seamlessly integrates moves from two popular dance forms, bellydance and hip hop, into a fluid, dynamic dance style, always explaining the original stylistic context of every move and the genre it represents.
Anasma breaks down the core dance vocabulary of bellydance and hip hop, pointing out similarities and differences in the moves they share.
She traces the origins of moves popular in Tribal Fusion bellydance, which borrows much of its vocabulary and styling from hip hop.
Anasma provides the original stylistic context for many Tribal Fusion elements such as popping, locking and strobing, hip hop influenced upper body moves like cobra chest circles and sidewinders, hip hop style body and arm waves, liquid style arm patterns, zigzag side floats and other moves.
Anasma's program consists of three main sections: Bellydance to Hip Hop instructions and drills, Hip Hop to Bellydance instructions and drills, and Choreography and choreography drills.
In the Bellydance to Hip Hop section Anasma explores bellydance core techniques and main movement trajectories, such as lines, circles, figure eights and shimmies, and infuses them with hip hop styling by adding the geometry of hip hop moves and the spatial awareness of hip hop.
In the Hip Hop to Bellydance section, Anasma breaks down hip hop isolation techniques and explores such hip hop sub-genres as waving, liquid, popping, dimestopping and strobing, mannequin, tutting, glides and floating and side floats, and shows you how they blend with the bellydance vocabulary.
For each type of bellydance and hip hop movement, Anasma teaches a combination that shows you how to fuse each step with moves from the other dance form for maximum impact.
Anasma also provides extensive drills which you can do within the instructional sections, or play all the hip hop and all the bellydance fusion drills in a row for a non stop practice and workout.
Finally, Anasma puts all the combinations together to create a choreographed bellydance hip hop fusion dance.
Anasma also performs two structured improvisations demonstrating how you can take the bellydance hip hop fusion techniques presented in the program to a new level with storytelling.
