Belly Dance Choreography by Leyla Najma is place for belly dancers who want to learn how to become their own choreographer. Choreography is often tought as a ‘do it like me’ exercise where the student is expected to memorize and then repeat a group of moves exactly as demonstrated by the intructor. In contrast the choreography instruction here is focused on helping you achieve creative freedom and artistic license so you can concieve your own choreography. So you can interpert the music in a manner that suits your point of view, your emotions and your dance story. It’s a dance like you, rather than dance like me approach for aspiring dance artists.
The Hip Phylosophy Curriculum
Belly Dance Choreography by Leyla Najma Belly Dance Video Productions has been developed and is offered as a place where belly dancers looking to get started being their own choreographers can get help they need and and learn how to become their own choreographer.
Belly Dance Choreography provides the ability for dancers to use their mobile smartphone or tablet device.
Belly Dance Choreography is completely mobile friendly and uses HTML5 web app technology the presents the Belly Dance Choreography website the same way that any mobile app is presented – so if you’re familiar with mobile apps, then you’ll appreciate the way Belly Dance Choreography is presented.
This makes Belly Dance Choreography conveniently accessible to all dancers regardless of what device they are using be it a smartphone, tablet device, computer or laptop and in the near future Belly Dance Choreography will be offered on the Google/Play and Amazon App stores.
Who is Belly Dance Choreography For
Belly Dance Choreography is for any belly dancer who is ready to move beyond simple in place dancing and begin to apply their own emotion, drama and creativity to their dancing by learning how to become their own choreographer; to begin to make belly dancing their personal art form.
Based on the Hip Phylosophy Belly Dance curriculum, Belly Dance Choreography is for the beginning-intermediate to intermediate belly dancer who is looking for and understands the need to learn the elements, or the ingredients of a choreography.
What You’ll Find at Belly Dance Choreography
Belly Dance Choreography DVD Collection
The Belly Dance Choreography set of three DVDs are all focused on helping you learn to become your own choreographer. Belly Dancing is a beautiful art form and when you learn to add original emotion and drama to your performances you are really crossing a threshold into becoming an artist. Your dance is like a painting with background, foreground, different colors and alike.
The Belly Dance Choreography collection of DVDs you’ll find here has been bundled with a unique DVD called “Continual Soft Moves”. This DVD contains unique soft moves and combinations that I developed over many, many years of restaurant performing. It is offered as a free bonus to the three belly dance choreography DVDs because it is well suited for restaurant performing (which may be one of your first gigs) and allows you to create family friendly performances.
The collection comes with free downloads of the same practice music I use on the videos, as well as class text of the moves and combinations you can download, print and use to follow along with before, during and after watching the video.
Free Choreography Help Video
If you’re looking for help just getting started with a choreography (maybe you have a bit of a brain freeze) and you’re on a budget then nothing beats free. Belly Dance Choreography Tips is a free 36 minute video that also comes with text that you can take advantage of as a way to get you in that “Choreography” state of mind.
Sometimes when it comes to getting started with Choreography you have to stop thinking about it and just do it. Choreography Tips will help you just do it as you’ll use the class text to follow along as we create a choreography together.
There’s no opt-in required, you don’t have to join any email list all you have to do is just click on the “Free Video” link on the home page.
Belly Dance Choreography Book – Text & Combos for the Perplexed Choreographer
Besides mobile being a convenient container of videos it is also a wonderful way to distribute multiple types of media using the mobile platform and recently I released a book on Amazon in Kindle and paperback format called “Belly Dance Choreography, Text and Combos for the Perplexed Choreographer”.
This book is included and made available through the mobile app for anyone who purchases the Belly Dance Choreography set of DVDs.
This book is not for the beginning choreographer but I offer it here so that as you do progress in your ability to choreograph your own performances you’ll have a path you can follow that will help you grow in your abilities.
