Video Suggestions for StarBelly School of Dance students and other interesting parties.
Often I get asked about what belly dance videos would be good to supplement a student’s instruction in one of my belly dance classes. Being in Boise, Idaho, we have to travel pretty far to seek additional instruction, or wait until one of the belly dance teachers bring in someone for a workshop (which happens 3-4 times a year which is awesome and another blog post later) So I am going to once a month feature some different DVDs that I think are wonderful.
This weeks suggested DVDs are any of the instruction DVDs by Myra Krien http://pomegranatestudio.org/persephone/home.php?cat=253 . I have almost all of her DVD’s and am incredible impressed with her full explanation of each step and combination and especially the anatomy and musculature of the moves. Excellent! I had the amazing experience to spend a week with Myra being trained and certified to start a SEEDs program here in Boise (StarBelly SEEDs-Self Esteem, Empowerment, & Education through Dance ) and am happy to now be sharing with my students some of what I learned from this true belly dance artist.
