The 8 ELEMENTS™ of Belly Dance

Having worked through many systems of artistic movement, we can safely declare Rachel Brice’s  8 Elements™ approach as a superior method to elucidate the key concepts of modern belly dance.

Kindle Cimmerian of Black Lotus Kult is proud to have received a Teaching Certification in this Datura Style™ approach.

She encourages those drawn to this art to consider this method in both their movement, and their spiritual practices.

Please view the following video (which includes scenes of Kindle) for more information…

“The 8 Elements™ approach encompasses biomechanics, vocabulary development, improvisation, choreography, musicality, practice development, tribal belly dance history, costuming, and performance preparation and experience.”

Happy Saint Valentine’s Day from your favourite LOVE KULT!

Tonight in Seattle

Skinny Dip Dec 2012

Kindle and other friends from Black Lotus Kult will take the stage at this evening’s Skinny Dip show at the High Dive. The show’s theme is “The Den of Iniquity”. In case that is not a good enough clue, their literature promoting the evening states “It’s not a family show” (I guess that would depend on the family though).

Although our performances are mostly ritualized with esoteric significance, this one will be “just for fun”.
