Strut your stuff in this brand-new Sahira Belly Dance T-shirt. Comfy pre-washed cotton (won’t shrink) with an angelic angel wings cut out in the back which will show through to whatever shirt or dance top you are wearing underneath. This is a limited print that won’t last long!

In this DVD, Sahira takes you on a journey into the heart of Egypt. Drawing heavily from the folkloric dancers of the Middle East, the combinations in this DVD put a new spin on several ancient movements. Each combination is first taught for a soloist and is built from the ground up with a focus on technique. Urban Hips then takes you through a few of the movements with exciting variations for troupes! A special section on music theory and zill technique is provided to complement the zill patterns used in some combinations. The DVD ends with a special performance by Urban Hips. Suitable for the tribal or cabaret stage, “Folkloric Combinations” will take your dance back to its roots!
