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.

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