"Desert Dreams" aka "Amir Beledi" Belly Dance
The "sister" dance to "All Abs Drum", this simple and cute beginner level dance is a great way to start to learn belly dancing. It features many of the common beginner level moves and provides therefore a great technique foundation for beginners.
Desert Dreams is pure belly dance - it has slow, slinky, smooth movements to go along with the gorgeous accordion & explosive sharp powerful movements when the tempo picks up & the drum beats come in fast & fabulous. This dance is a definite show stopper!
