Editorial Reviews

Welcome to The Move Before the Move! This DVD explores the linchpin of professional dancing: smooth transitions. Even if you have perfect technique, the skill of seamlessly weaving your movements together is an art unto itself. A polished and professional dancer allows one move to effortlessly flow into the next, creating a fluid dance rather than a laundry list of steps.

Sa diyya s clear instruction and attention to detail make her the perfect dancer to tackle this subject. First she outlines several concrete techniques that can be used to create smooth transitions, then she demonstrates them in use with several combinations. Each combination has a before and an after section, allowing you to clearly see the difference that is made by using fluid transitions.

As an extra bonus, all of the combinations can be strung together to create a complete, stage-ready choreography to the dynamic song Nagwa. The DVD is extensively chaptered for enhanced learning and drilling, and at the end you will get to see Sa diyya perform the piece in a live theater show setting.

Sa diyya is the winner of the hit reality show Project Belly Dance Season 2. The creation of this DVD is part of her prize, along with several workshop opportunities and a custom-made belly dance costume.

I'm a dance teacher with over a hundred students. This gal, who I have never heard of, has made one of the best DVD's I've ever seen. My students love the material. Wowza. Often when you buy a video you wonder if it was worth it. With this one, you'll wonder how you can make use of all of the good material. I never write video reviews. Run, don't walk, to go buy this one. It'll have you dancing like a pro. Kudos, Sadiyya. I hope to congratulate you in person one day.

I really enjoyed this video. I appreciate how the concepts were explained and applied in the lesson plan. I also enjoyed learning the basic movements and then learning the movements after the concepts were applied. This instructor is a wonderful teacher. I recommend this video to everyone. I think all levels would enjoy it.

Nice DVD. Choreography may be better for those who are beyond beginner level. However, the concepts presented are appropriate for all levels. Sa'diyya is an awesome teacher and does a good job explaining how to use transitions to add character and dimension to your dance.
