Three Bellydance Workout Combinations

Workout 1 - Chiftitelli

The Chiftitelli is one of the sexiest rhythms in middle-eastern music. It is usually associated with sensuous, flowing movement, stretchy arms and torso, hip circles and the like. This combination starts out with a chiftitelli to warm you up, then proceeds into an easy, bouncy beledi to energize and perk up your whole body. The combination repeats and alternates movements, all dancey, all beautiful and refreshing to your soul. Runtime: 9 min 27 sec

Workout 2 - Saiidi

The Saiidi rhythm is very folkloric, lending itself well to playful and cute steps. We use hiplocks, circles, lifts, extends, figure 8s, twists, dabke bounce, shoulder shimmies, slides, hipdrops, and many more movements all taught in the technique section. Runtime: 7 min 3 sec

Workout 3 - Maksoum Drum Solo

The maksoum is a very lively, upbeat (fast!) tempo here. This routine is designed to rev you up and get all your energy flowing. Danced alone or in order especially with the other two combinations one after another, you will get an incredible workout and feel exhilarated! Runtime: 7 min 16 sec
