Drum Solo Magic – Belly Dance Technique and Choreography is a belly dance drum solo (tabla solo) instructional program by Cairo-based star of oriental Dance, Shahrzad.
The drum solo is one of the most exciting parts of a belly dancer’s repertoire. The intricate pops and rolls of the drum enable dancers to showcase their technical skill while the upbeat pace of the music leaves a lot of room for expressing personality and having fun.
Shahrzad opens her program with a warmup designed to both stretch and strengthen the muscles of the core, hips, and legs. Next comes a technique review for the shimmies and isolations. In the following section, she breaks down step-by-step a series of detailed combinations that showcase many different rhythms and accents found in drum solo music. Finally, Shahrzad combines all of the technique and combinations into a fun and challenging choreography. Instruction and choreography is set to music from the CD Iconic Rhythms of Egypt by Marshall Bodiker. Buy the DVD and CD together to enhance your practice and performance!
