Modern Tribal Bellydance opens with a warm up and conditioning
section (45 min.) that combines bellydance technique drills with a total
body muscle conditioning workout. Strengthening exercises alternate
with bellydance movement and yoga-based stretches. This great daily
routine improves muscle tone and strength, prepares the body for dance,
and promotes a stronger carriage for everyday life.
The technique and isolations section (55 min.) flows through
intermediate technique drills with a detailed breakdown of each
movement. The drill sequences take each movement to the next level
step-by-step through accelerating tempo changes. In the hipwork section,
Asharah adds weight transfers, traveling steps, and level changes.
One of the signature features of Asharah's dynamic and futuristic
dance style is strobing, ticking, and robotic accents and freezes
creating an impression of non-human, mechanical precision. In the
"Modern Tribal Movement" section (30 min.) Asharah teaches this powerful
and unique style of accent execution by breaking upper and lower body
bellydance movements first into three and then into four segments,
drilling each at accelerating speeds. Regular work using the
conditioning exercises and drills from the previous sections of the
program will make your body move with Asharah's clockwork precision!
