Product Description

Fluid Tribal Bellydance explores the technique and styling of Tribal Fusion with an emphasis on musicality and fluidity of movement. The program is created by Fayzah, a New York star of Tribal Fusion belly dance known for her rich, graceful, and eloquent style characterized by a powerful fluidity, her innovative dance vocabulary and the integration of diverse fusion dance elements.

Many Fluid Tribal moves are inspired by the organic motion found in nature - the wave-like and shimmering movement of animals and marine creatures, and their ability to instantly switch between a tension-charged steady glide, a sudden freeze, a burst of explosive motion, and complete softness and release. Fayzah's instruction focuses on precise muscle control and on layering Tribal Fusion moves to create intricate yet streamlined patterns of undulating flow punctuated by percussive breaks, syncopations, and tempo changes.

The main sections of the program are:

Tribal Fusion Foundation Movement
Concepts, Layered and Advanced Moves
Choreography
Performing Tribal Fusion with Finger Cymbals
Tribal Fusion Music Flavors

The Tribal Fusion Foundation Movement section reviews the core dance vocabulary of Tribal Fusion, including turns, abdominal isolations, popping, waving, glute accents, hip drop patterns, and much more.

The Concepts, Layered and Advanced Moves section assembles fluid moves, turns and accents into combinations weaving together footwork, hipwork, and upper body movement. It includes moves based on stop and release, twist kicks, hipwork combined with chest stops, and various fluid and percussive walks and turns combinations. To commit Fluid Tribal technique to your muscle memory, Fayzah offers Movement Play, a non-stop practice flow that reviews the combinations introduced in the previous sections.

In the Choreography section Fayzah breaks down combination-by-combination a Tribal Fusion choreography to the song Bounty Killa by BreakBeatBuddha. The choreography is at an intermediate-to-advanced level and features many techniques and transitions that will enrich and polish your individual dance style.

Two special sections of Fayzah's program are dedicated to musicality in Tribal Fusion: Techniques and tips for playing zills during Tribal Fusion performances, and Tribal Fusion Music flavors. In Tribal Fusion Music Flavors Fayzah performs three improvisations to different pieces of music and comments on how she adapts her dance style to match the rhythmic structure and emotive color of different music flavors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modernised belly dancing at it's best! 10 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
I've only had this DVD for a few months, but I've been able to learn a fair amount from the movements.

I've been belly dancing myself for about 2 years now, and I wanted the DVD to help with my fluidity e.g wave movement of my arms etc - and it's definitely helped and has allowed me to build on my own technique and style.

The movements are easy enough to learn if you know what you are doing, however, if you have no experience you will find it hard to pick them up I feel.

I think that this DVD would be best suited for people who have been belly dancing themselves for at least 6 months or more.

The teacher Fayzah is a really good example of fluid belly dancing and the tribal style of belly dancing she offers is obviously different to the classical egyptian/arabic belly dancing that a lot of people will know of, but it still has its own sensuality and beauty and this is portrayed through tribal movements.

If you are looking for a more classical egyptian/arabic teaching then this DVD isn't for you, but if you are looking for something more up-tempo and dynamic then this is definitely one to add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 9 Mar 2011
This is exactly what it says it is... a Tribal FUSION bellydance DVD. It's not traditional arabic ok? As a fusion DVD it offers a great deal to a dancer who has covered the basics of TF bellydance, and is looking to move up to the next stage, as Fayzah teaches combinations, layering and footwork, which are essential elements of this style.
Wouldn't be suitable for a beginner by any means, but for someone looking to improve and move forward, it's ideal. Fayzah covers all aspects of modern Tribal Fusion, so it's a smart introduction to the whole dance style. She herself has amazing muscular control and grace, and it's a pleasure to watch from that perspective. Plenty of the usual yoga conditioning exercises at the beginning, I think this DVD offers a great deal for anyone looking to expand their dance vocabulary. It's challenging in parts which is great!

1.0 out of 5 stars Will probably sell this on Ebay 23 Dec 2010
By Minx
This product is not what I was looking for.I did not like the style of Bellly Dance and was looking for something more traditional. I think it would be beneficial if a short preview was available. This video is more for someone who wants a more street dance style of belly dance rather than the gentle sensual style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great variety and new information 22 Aug 2009
By Alechka16 - Published on Amazon.com
I'm slightly conflicted about how I feel about this DVD. While it has valuable content and I love Fayzha's energy and great instructions, I wish there was more practice time included for each of the movements she covers in both the tribal fusion foundation movement and Concepts, Layered and Advanced Moves. Those sections include various moves and concepts that are introduced rather quickly and some I've never seen before, which is why I would've preferred to have some practice time along with Fayzha and not a still picture as I have her on pause and try to remember how she described the movement. I figure the logic behind the little practice time is that this DVD is indubitably for intermediate-advanced dancers who likely know how to practice on their own and in accordance with areas that need improvement so they only need to be informed how to do movements.....I still would've liked more practice though...
So this is the menu on the DVD and how long each section is:
Welcome --3:35 (This is the portion you can find on youtube)
Essential Oils- Preparation for Meditation --1:29 (Here she just discusses how she likes to use essential oils because they can help you relax, etc)
Guided Meditation --7:16 (I don't love this section because I'm not a meditation type of person, especially before dance. Also, there's music in the background that to is not particularly relaxing but others might like it)
Warm-up and tribal fusion technique review --14:26 (This is a fairly thorough warm up, it starts kind of pilates inspired with some ab work and some yoga type stretches, the second half is belly dance inspired and has you warming up for isolations)
Tribal Fusion Foundation Movement --20:09--which has the following moves (duration is in brackets):
1. Walks [2:59] (here she shows a "panther" walk, its a funky type of grapevine)
2. Turns & Double Turns [1:47]
3. Chest Rotations [1:23]
4. Headslides and Rolls [1:10]
5. Abdominal Isolations [:53]
6. Popping [:49]
7. Hand Articulations [3:02](This section covers seaweed hands, jelly fish hands and she gives tips and demonstrations on working on hand and finger flexibility and other good tips to polish your hand articulation)
8. Waving [2:16]
9. Arms Training Exercises [2:00]
10. Hips: "Indian Sit" [:43]
11. Umis [:20]
12. Glute Accents & Hip Shimmies [:51]
13. Hip Drop Patterns [:31]
Concepts, Advanced Moves & Layers --14:36--which has the following moves (duration is in brackets):
1. Stop and Release [1:07]
2. Exhibiting [:51]
3. Twist Kicks [1:13]
4. Elbow to Knee Pick Ups [:31]
5. Wave Internal Roll Through [:33]
6. Spiral Swinging Door Hips with Elbow Pulls [:56]
7. Walking Mayas Rolling Through Foot [1:10]
8. Floating Seaweed Arms with Hip Accents [1:47]
9. Going to the Market Walk [1:04]
10. Back/Front Cross Step [:38]
11. Hips Ups with Chest Stops [1:12]
12. Slow Washer Woman [:57]
13. Reggae Rock [:38]
14. Balance Turn [1:02]
15. Jellyfish Side Wave Move [:49]
Movement Play Flow --8:49 (This is a good practice flow, it can get confusing if you haven't practiced the moves enough ahead of time but it does cover the new moves Fayzha has introduced to you...yet I feel like I need more. I mean, how can 35 minutes of new moves be covered efficiently in a 9 minute practice flow? Once again, it's a good practice flow, but it could have been longer with more practice time for the more challenging moves. Sure you can just play it over again...but I just want more.
"Bounty Killer" Choreography Demonstration --1:16
"Bounty Killer" Combinations Step by Step --8:05 (She explains well and doesn't move too quickly, the choreography is fun and if I can ever get it down pat I'll be very proud. What I liked is that it's very reflective of Fayzha's dance style, she's very tribal but not the gothic dark type. She really is fluid and a great creative dancer.
Performing Tribal Fusion with Finger Cymbals --8:04 (She gives an intro to different ways to make sounds with the zils and how different ones have different tones. She has you play along for a few short minutes to a song playing in the background, and then zils as she dances while a voice over explains what she's doing zil wise)
Tribal Fusion Music Flavors: Improvised Demonstrations --5:19 (She covers one song that has kind of a circus feeling, one that is jazz and I don't remember the third. In a voice over she explains how the music influences her movements and how to listen for those cues that help her reflect the music in her dance. I wish there was a no voice option so that this could double as fun performance pieces)
Performances by Fayzah --4:33 (Fun creative dances but I'm pretty sure I saw both already on youtube)
Overall, this DVD is definitely not a waste because she does impart a lot of great tribal dance knowledge. However, be prepared to get adequate practice with the new and more advanced moves on your own. I don't understand why on the cover it says there are drills in the DVD because there really aren't any, on average you repeat each move about 4 times in the practice flow and when the moves are introduced it goes quite fast as well. I especially like how she has more of a funky vibe to her tribal dance style, unlike many of the other tribal girls who are more gothic and dark. The production is great and everything looks very professional. She does wear long pants, but when it's important to see the specifics of her foot movements she lifts the pant leg up. If you like Fayzha's style of dancing and have been dancing for some time then this DVD will please you because she really gives away a lot of her secrets. Beginners be warned, this is not a beginner friendly DVD, she will not break down how to do undulations and other more basic moves.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites! 27 Aug 2009
By Suzanne Estrada - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have owned probably more than 30 bellydance dvd's and I have only reviewed a few that really impress me. After watching this just a few times, I am already naturally adding these movements to my repetoire. It is one of those dvd's that you watch the movements and then just do them. She simply explains the moves and I am able to replicate the movements, unlike with other dvds. I have tried other tribal choreography dvd's etc, but haven't found one as complete as this one and as easy to follow. This one has all those signature type moves that make tribal bellydance so awesome. This dvd and Saida's first dvd with Mario Kirlis are the two most influential dvds in really transforming my dance.
This dvd has basics and moves into more complex movements, so I will be using it for a long time.
The only thing I didn't care for is the meditation section, but everything else is awesome! Thanks a lot Fayzah, great job!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluid Tribal Bellydance... a fun ride! 12 Aug 2009
By Shara of Desert Dance - Published on Amazon.com
I was excited to get this one! I was watching and waiting for it to arrive in my mailbox! It is impossible for me to choose a favorite syle of bellydance, but I CAN say that this is ONE of my favorite styles to watch!

First of all, let me say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this DVD! That is not to say this will not be a critical review, though, so let me break it down.

Fayzah starts off with a bit on essential oils. Since no warnings are mentioned in this section, I feel I must. Always do a patch test with essential oils, and unless you really know what you are doing, don't use them undiluted, as some of them will burn your skin, and all citrus oils make your skin photosensitive (which means, if you wear them in the sun, you are more likely to burn in that area).

Okay, the critical part is over! Now for some FUN! Fayzah then leads you in a guided meditation and a yoga warm-up, work-out. She then leads you through isolations, spiraling, turns, locks, pops,hits, and breaks. She shows you how she fuses a particular club move into her dance. You will learn combinations and short choreography so that you can practice your new moves and techniques. You will enjoy her spirit and her love for the dance.

Fayzah also demonstrates that zills have different tones and that you want to play with your zills to find a tone to go with your music. She does several short performances that you are sure to enjoy! THIS ONE IS FUN, GIRLS! (AND GUYS) You will find it challenging if you are not used to layering, and layering isolations, but you want a challenge, now, don't you?!! Have fun with Fayzah's combinations and playful, energetic motion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hands instruction 2 Jan 2010
By Wasimah - Published on Amazon.com
This is an intermediate or advanced-beginner level video.

Before buying this video, I watched some video on the internet of Fayzah's style. I liked her arms and hands, and hoped that I would learn some technique from her through this DVD. Indeed, her instruction sections on hands and arms are by far the best I've ever seen in any bellydance videos. Most tribal fusion videos only explain floralias, but Fayzah demonstrates many hand positions, waves, circles, and other beautiful movements. On days when I don't feel like practicing, I still put in her video and work on hands and arms. I like this section so much, in fact, that I haven't gotten through the whole DVD yet. It was worth it just for what I've seen so far.

She does move really quickly through the movements, without repeating very much, so I find myself skipping back to the ones I want to repeat. The nice thing is that "skipping" back only jumps one or two movements, rather than long segments.
This makes it easy to "rewind" so to speak and re-watch only what I want to.

I've purchased about 10 other tribal-fusion videos, but I LOVE this one! Most videos teach choreography or combinations that I can't remember. Fayzah teaches strong, independent movements that can easily be combined in improvisation, an approach I prefer.

I really like the meditation warm-up. Lighting a candle and meditating on the breath help me center. Most bellydance videos warm-up by stretching, and I have trouble getting into the mindset where I feel like stretching--I would rather just start dancing. Fayzah's approach of gentle mindful centering has helped me focus and become more present in my practice. And that's what bellydance is really about, isn't it? Quieting the mind and really being in the body.

I did skip to the end and watch the performance sections. I really enjoy Fayzah's style--her movements are feminine and strong, smooth and flowing contrasting with sharp accents.

I love this video!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring 13 Feb 2010
By Rossella - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If I consider this dvd as an inspirational dvd, I'd give it five stars: unique style, attractive and well played combos. Otherwise, if I consider this dvd as an instructional one, I'd give it only one star: many difficult combos are demonstrated only two or three times without giving you the chance to understand the machanics of the movements. Furthermore, Fayzah doesn't show you the movements from the back not even with a mirror.
The zill section is very poorly done and doesn't give you any explaination for the most common rhythms.
Definitely I'd suggest this dvd to a tribal fusion addicted bellydancer who is looking for new ideas.
