Sometimes the most powerful things are not those that are larger than life, but the tiny little details that make something incredibly special.
While I may be blown away from time to time by a performance that was off-the-charts with the latest and greatest technique, I find more often than not it’s the little thoughtful details that make a dance impactful.
Today’s move is one that falls into that “small but mighty” category.
I’m talking about The Jewel – a movement that rarely stands on its own, but is more often seen as a tag on the end of another movement… a beautiful little bling that adds just the texture and finesse that you’re looking for.
The Jewel comes in many variations and flavors – today we are going to take it down to the basics to give you a solid foundation to build upon in your dance.
Let’s get blingy and play with The Jewel!
Ready to take this movement to the next level. This video is a tiny gem from the newly revamped “Beginner Belly Dance Technique Toolkit”, an 8-week course designed to give you the solid foundation you need to really take off and explore this beautiful dance form. Whether you are brand new to the dance or a dance veteran wanting to hone the ever-important basics, I invite you to join me for the journey!
