Bellydance Superstars -Tribal Drum Solo Choreography with Zoe & Issam
Firstly please be aware that the original DVD had horrible audio issues...lots of it were out of sync and I made this file several times before I ended up with this one, I literally had to encode the choreography segments one at a time to try to prevent the sync issues. HOWEVER...the file is NOT perfect, I have done as best as I could to get everything in sync and believe the only place where the audio is out is in the performance at the end of the file...everything else appears to be in sync. If you can stand to watch the performance a beat or so out...then the file is fine to download...if you want it exact then you will have to wait for me to get around to uploading the full DVD, which won't be soon.
In this DVD, Zoe demonstrates how the dancer can interpret drum solo rhythms several ways, giving the student an opportunity to explore percussive music with fluid grace or sharp percussive accents such as hits, pops, locks, and her trademark spins. Zoe starts the student off with a warm-up she uses regularly in her workshops, and integrates drills specifically chosen to get the student comfortable with her movement base. In the Drum Solo section, Issam begins with an explanation of the Rhythm he is playing for that section, and Zoe will break down, with her clear and concise instruction, unique combinations tailored to each rhythm presented. The combinations will then be put together to create an entire dance which will be performed by Zoe.
Whether you are just learning tribal style, or have mastered the art, this DVD will give valuable insight on creative new moves with Zoes signature style. Zoe Jakes has been teaching her own take on tribal bellydance for Six years and is one of the most highly sought after instructors working today.
