Editorial Reviews

Created by New York City-based star of Tribal Fusion Dance Fayzah, the Android Goddess instruction program blends the precise isolations and fluidity of Tribal Fusion bellydance with two unique and colorful movement stylizations: The Goddess and The Machine.

The Goddess is characterized by fluid, sophisticated, expansive movement, with majestic poses inspired by the cycles and flow of Earth, wind, water, and volcanic lava. The Machine, or Android, features robotic movement, waving, ticking, hitting, and dimestopping, coming from popping styles, mime, street performance, digital music, and illusion effects.

In the instructional sections of the program Fayzah builds the Android Goddess style step-by-step. She teaches the Goddess and the Android portions of her dance vocabulary separately, drills the moves, and then weaves them into combinations.

The Android Concepts section explores ways of imitating mechanical machine-like motion through body angles, ticking, hitting, dime stopping, transitions, effects, and other types of robotic movement. Then Fayzah demonstrates and breaks down a series of moves from the Android style dance vocabulary, and leads you through Android drills, practicing each movement again and again, working toward creating an illusion of machine-like motion. You can repeat the drills as many times as you need to, to get these moves into your muscle memory. Some of them will be easier, while others may require a lot of practice and muscle conditioning.

Next Fayzah demonstrates and breaks down a series of steps and poses from the Goddess style movement vocabulary. These movements embody natural elements and explore different types of fluidity, muscle control, and extension. Goddess movement drills help you tune into the full-body, expansive, powerful and confident style of Goddess movement.

Finally, Fayzah blends the Goddess and the Android movements with steps and accents of Tribal Fusion belly dance in a series of combinations you can adopt as part of your personal dance vocabulary to perform individually or as a sequence. Each combination is introduced step-by-step and drilled through a number of repetitions. You can also practice all the combinations in a sequence, like a choreographed dance.

Android Goddess also includes a muscle conditioning warmup and a few other sections to help you master the Android Goddess style. There is a dance-along practicewhere you can work on Soul, or your groove, while doing isolations and waving. Groove is the heart of rhythmic movement often overlooked when we learn and practice dance. Feeling the beat, confidence in moving with it, and the ability to express the rhythm gives a distinctive and effortless pacing to your dance. Another dance-along section is the Goddess Flow which brings about body awareness, using imagination, and introduces different ways of initiating and performing the movement.

Welcome, In the welcome section Fayzah is giving you an overview of what the dvd is about.She talks about the two different concepts she has Android and goddess.
Warm-up and strengthening, I feel as it some of the movements could have been slower, some of them just moved way to fast.I liked this warm-up it was not a yoga warm-up or yoga inspired warm-up like you see on most dvd's.Some yoga was used but not an extremely long section dedicated to it.Like you would see in serpentine or other fusion dvd's. The movements are movements you would likely see in a regular class setting. I do not think this warm-up was beginner friendly. posture on how to do these movements are not carefully explained. Lunges and squats are used and careful explanation on the lunges should have been given but were not.On another note if you workout regularly or dance regularly these movements will not be new or difficult.

The sections are pretty self explanatory for the Android portion she teaches hip hop dance concepts
and in the goddess bellydance concepts. There are about six combinations, and then she puts all the combinations together into a demonstration like performance. After the combinations she does a movement flow section that focuses on body awareness, which I thought was pretty cool,:) it reminded me of a section on one of the Blanca's dvd's, where she initiated different movements from each body part. Except this is a little more free form improvisational.

This was a pretty awesome DVD. Fayzah is very talented and I love the solo she does at the end. This is not your typical Belly dance DVD because she combines elements of hip hop. I did not purchase this DVD to practice purely belly dance, I wanted something different to spice up my routines. I got exactly what I wanted and more because I can even use some of these moves outside of a belly dance setting such as a club.

I found the warm-up a little too rushed, but younger dancers won't have a problem with it. This has a good intro to hip hop. You need to have a little bit of belly dance under your belt to go through this smoothly, so having the basics down will help you out a lot. I have to mention that I am very glad that not all belly dance videos are geared toward beginners. We need lots more geared toward intermediate and advanced. If you like fusion, perhaps this is your next step up from being a beginner. Happy dancing!
