Bellydancing With Veils
Bellydancing With VeilsDancing with Veils is part and parcel of American Bellydancing. As Bellydancing with veil evolved, there developed different types of “ties”and styles of working with Veils. It is useful to understand the reasoning behind the different styles so that the Dancer can learn to execute the moves gracefully and elegantly. This video is the first of a series of Instructional Veil Work. Master Teacher Cory Zamora demonstrates and explains the style of Veil Work she prefers to use. She is assisted in this program by one of her charming students and skilled dancers, Amanda. The Veil style Cory prefers to use and teach is known as the “Bib” tie. Dancing with Veils involves skillful ways of removing the veil. In this program, two different ways of removal are taught. One way is suited for a shorter piece of music, while the other removal way is more appropriate for a longer musical piece.
You will learn how to do Veil Work to the two main rhythms: Rhumba/Bolero a 4 count musical piece and a Chiftitelli, an 8 count piece. It is useful to know how to dance with veils to both rhythms, Instruction is provided in several Veil moves, including: Shadow Box, Lame Bird, among others. They are broken down so you can learn them easily. You will also learn (a) Proper Holding/Fingering with Zills, (b) what steps to use in Veil.
