Ever wanted to get yourself better acquainted with your finger cymbals?�Finger cymbals can be a belly dancer’s worst nightmare or their best friend. Alas, there are methods that make learning how to wrangle these beasts all the sweeter and easier. Finger Cymbals improve a dancer’s understanding of musicality, demonstrate a level of proficiency as a performer and add a joyful and dynamic element to the dance. They are fun, playful and a bread-and-butter part of belly dance, with deep roots in both Egyptian and Turkish tradition. Jordan teaches using methods learnt from studying with Shahrzad, Henna, Rachel Brice, Ashley Lopez and Karim Nagi. In this 10 week course dancers will learn how to play basic rhythms on finger cymbals and pair them with movement combinations. The connections between sound and movement will be clarified to give the dancer a sense of ease when using finger cymbals in their dance.
