    Default Dance styles

    Hello,

    Ok maybe it is not the better place to ask this, but i though you could help me.

    I do and love belly dance. I want to do an other dance in addition.
    Which dance seeming like belly dance can i do ?
    (Something solo, feminin, graceful, body movement fluid ... some stuff i like in belly dance if you were wondering)

    Thank you in advance !

    In fact, when you enroll in a courses they just sell it as belly dance class. It's not that there are classes for this style and classes for this style. But maybe in the class the teacher will show different technique.
    The only thing there is is bd class or tribal fusion class (but as for me i don't like tribal)

    Hmm. Awkward to not know what style you're learning, isn't it? My class was called "belly dance" in the rec center catalog but the blurb specifically designated it as classic American Oriental.


    Most dance styles require a lot of class time before the word "solo" is even mentioned. I suppose you might try modern dance if you can find a class. The classes I took way back in the Jurassic were a little less structured than ballet or jazz but I certainly wouldn't say modern is similar to belly dance.

    Can you tell me what is this style ? I give you a fb link of 3 short videos. I hope the links will work (or by copy paste )

    Ps: yes i am thinking of doing modern'jazz, but i am not flexible
    Here we don't have modern, it is or contemporary classes or modern'jazz classes.

    The links bring up the videos but don't allow me to play them without downloading them to my computer which I don't want to do. I got trust issues.

    Here are two youtube links, it is not the same videos as fb, but the same dancer, i didn't even know she was on youtube

    https://youtu.be/lxMQ2i44D2k

    Hope it works this time.

    You see for example this style i would just say it is classic bd style (but what would you call it ?)

    Very nice, I like her a LOT. I'd call it classic cabaret style, or American Cabaret although she didn't play finger cymbals in these videos which I would have liked to see. She has the rare ability to project emotion through the camera - if I were half as good as she is, I'd call myself a Belly Dancer!

    Yep, those worked. Thanks. Agree it's basically AmCab. Don't care for the forward straight leg high kicks but the double veil was nice!
