Accessories for dance

One the most exciting questions for performers of belly dance - " How to diversify the dance? ". In fact the attributes in dance define character of the dancer: be it feathers, fire, the weapon or a cane. The subject, dance - nakes to its shower. It not only special effects, is a huge force, the passion which is pulled out outside!

1.Sagats, or cymbals, (they "zisls") - small metal kettle-drum, put on on big and a middle finger of each hand. Are used by professional dancers as independent accompaniment. In their complete set should be two pairs. If cymbals of high quality two have cuts for an elastic tape that does not allow cymbals to dangle and enables you to supervise your actions better.

To own sagats study long enough. Process of training is not so simple, as can seem at first sight. Very often badly trained dancer using in dance sagats, quickly tires hearing even the unsophisticated spectator.
2.Raqs Al Shamadan - dance with a candelabrum. A candelabrum - the big figured candlestick with alight the candles, attached to a head of the dancer. In Egypt Shamaidan danced on wedding, shining young road to happy home life. It is necessary to be able to possess the body so that to isolate movement hips, breasts to supervise softness of a step: in fact the candelabrum should be motionless!

Dance with a subject on a head - long work above itself. Begin with simple: try to dance with the book on a head. Naturally, pay attention to the bearing, on how hold a head. After you have seized the book, try a umbrella-cane. By the moment of purchase of a candelabrum it is necessary to learn not isolate movements, but also superb to own coordination, balance, to have the "trained" vestibular device - and it not one week of persistent trainings. But dance with a candelabrum or a tray impresses for all life.
3.Dance with a cane on-arab refers to Raqs Al Assaya. Speak, that dance has come from men-shepherds, and women have adopted it. Historians approve, that men of the Top Egypt carried with themselves of a stick as the weapon. From fighting movements man's dance with a stick was born. Women began to imitate men with easier cane - so this cheerful dance was born.

Work with a cane is complex, balancing of a cane on a head, breasts, a hip is especially difficultly given. It demands fair skill - in fact it is simultaneously necessary to dance! Juicy deduction of a cane on a hip emphasizes pretty dancers.

If you are still far from purchase of a cane (there is it cheaply, in Moscow from 10 $), and to try to dance with a cane very much it would be desirable now, the umbrella-cane will approach. Be indulged in the pleasure. Rotation in a hand, on a head you even can test balancing on a umbrella, however for execution of other complex elements already traditional cane, with a hook on the end is required. Easy, bamboo, approximately on a belt in height.
4.Dance with a scarf, or a scarf (it is traditional - only an output after which the dancer gets rid of a scarf and continues dance already without it). It is a lot of versions of an origin. Egyptians speak, that a scarf, probably, in general has come from Russia. In 1940th years the governor of Egypt Faruh has invited Russian ballerina Ivanova that that learned its daughters to art of ballet. Ivanova has learned the known Egyptian dancer by name Samia Gamal to a beautiful output with a scarf and to some movements with it - and the scarf has got accustomed in Egypt.

The scarf for dances (it a scarf or "vail") should be length 2,70 - 3 m, width 1 m and is processed on edges. It is possible to decorate a scarf an embroidery, a beads, but it is not necessary to be zealous - the scarf should be a lung, not cling to a suit. The fabric for a scarf should be chosen easy, streamy: it can be chiffon or silk. A beautiful output - the most fascinating part of dance. Therefore it is necessary to consider, as it is original to make it that the spectator at once has plunged into an atmosphere of an event.

To seize a three-meter piece of a fabric it is complex. Work with a scarf is many-sided and demands a fair share of imagination. To leave it is possible, having turned in a scarf; having covered the person; or similarly to serpent to creep out of a scarf. Is a little simple, but effective combinations with a scarf which become an indisputable ornament of any dance: the eights, emissions, "pyramids", " wings Icid ", etc.
5.Dance with a sabre, a sword, a blade.

Womanly belly dance and terrible cold steel of soldiers. Usually sabre and a sword use for beautiful balancing on a head, a stomach or a hip. People are pleasant to be trusted, as if once in the antiquities of the woman accompanied men in military campaigns, at night in tents entertained their dance with the weapon.
6.Dance with fire.

It is a lot of nuances on work with torches: not each premise can accept such dance, a torch can die out, them hard extinguishes, they smoke faintly is not sweet, a smoke not with a smell of a lavender, and you can dance all dance in a soot.

Work with torches is unsafe for the dancer with the long hair, wrapped up in synthetics. To dance it is recommended in wide trousers, and hair to collect in a bunch.

Torches burn not for long, on spirit or kerosene, but to rotate them it is possible, as a cane, more precisely, as two canes in hands. It is possible "to draw" various beautiful combinations in air.
7.Many screw up the face only at a mention of dance with the snake, but, I think, estimate such dance true gourmets can only. Except for absence of fear before this darling brutest, it is necessary to have strong hands, legs to lift the snake.

It is necessary to find the person who will learn you to understand the snake, to address with it, and it is natural, which all time beside during performances will be present. The snake is not a cane, it can react to public, smells, sounds though is a rarity.

If you have decided to find by all means the snake and to dance with it - dare. Only remember: if in you lives though a drop of fear before it you will be capable of inadequate reaction.

It is possible to dance on a floor, under slow music, and only more close by the end of dance to rise. So it will be easier to you to supervise and, and the snake.
