Delilah's Belly Dance Workshops

Absolute Beginning Belly dance with Delilah

Instruction Video - $49.95 on VHS or DVD

On this video you will find one of my famous Elemental Warm Ups that turns into a deep lesson plan I call "Mapping the Internal Realms of the Body." As part of this work we will begin the Horizontal Belly Roll. It’s the hardest and rarest belly roll work I know but I decided to work with it in the beginning, because everything up the road will seem easier after practicing these fundamentals. Then we move into the basic mechanics of bellydance: alignment, shimmies, exotic arms 7 hands, and head slides. We feature the hour glass concept, exotic lotus hands and Kali's arms. With these simple concepts you can practice a mystic Candle Dance included in the program.

Performance Video 30 minutes $29.95

Any viewer will gain an appreciation for the beautiful art of bellydancing from this tape. It features Delilah in seven performances, all excerpted from the Delilah's Bellydance Workshop instructional video series. Each dance is uniquely and beautifully costumed, lit and staged, creating an inspiring, breath-taking dance experience.

"It's clear that a lot of vision - in the artistic sense - went into the video. It is far more than the reproduction of beautiful dances; it deals with moods, image and drama .... These are seven Delilah dances, packed with a wealth of beautiful movements, expression, and nuances that make each dance worth the price of the tape."
Shakira, HABIBI Magazine

Great Mother Dance to the Great Mother

This is a truly unique and important dancework. In it, Delilah portrays Isis, the Great Mother.

An in-depth interview discussing both the creation of this dance and the meaning of bellydance for women, follows the performance.

Goddess Grace Goddess Grace: A Moving Meditation
Video by Mariel and friends 120 minutes $29.95

When a dancer friend of ours produced this video, we were so excited by it that we had to make it available to you in our catalog. Goddess Grace is a moving meditation which weaves together elements of yoga, bellydance, other dance forms and exercise routines in a continuously flowing Tai Chi-style format. The movements are coordinated with a spoken meditation which invokes 26 goddesses from around the world, from Athena to Zoe, and includes empowering first-person affirmations. The form develops strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and grace, stretching and toning the entire body, while instilling a positive self-image and inspiring personal and social transformation. We applaud Mariel for her production and recommend it highly.
