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.”

LOVE 2.0

After a last-second call to fill in at January’s Alauda show at the Skylark West Seattle (where she performed to the Soulsavers “Paper Money“), Kindle’s next big performance will be at the second run of the Crazy Little Thing Called Love show…

Promising to take you “From the darkest depths of betrayal to the highest highs of a new romance”, Rebel Belly Productions‘ ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ is hitting the stage for a second run this weekend at the Columbia City Theater. Kindle of Black Lotus Kult will be performing to the music of COIL, The Magnetic Fields, and Elliott Smith. In the first run, she wowed the audience with two distinct sets in the two acts, with many onlookers not realizing they were witnessing the same performer. See her, and many other incredibly talented performers THIS SUNDAY!

Elizabeth Dennis, Katana, Kat Ross, Kindle Cimmerian, Maysun Riya, Medea, Monica Schierbaum, Muna Rain, Shimmy Sister Kate, Sierra Bloom, Somni (Letty Limbach & Sarah Kate Moore), Vibha Srinivasan, and Wisteria
