Zils are in integral part of any belly dancer's performance repertoire. Learning to play them well means knowing not only about the dance, but the music and rhythms behind it.
This fun, friendly class includes an overview of rhythms that dancers are likely to encounter, along with easy zil patterns that can be played along with them, and each student will receive a rhythm sheet with the patterns written out for practicing at home!
Students will also learn:
- Exercises that help build rhythmic skill
- Tips for practicing at home
- A few tricks that will aid in zilling while actually dancing!
Live music is provided by Stephen Carpenter.
