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.”
