About This Class
“Gitana” by Light Rain
This is a beautiful piece of music with a haunting, flowing, gypsy feel by the band who holds the claim to being the first American band to record music for Belly Dancing. I believe it. I had several of their albums in the 70s!
This will be an excellent “first dance” for any new performers. If you think about the types of combinations that you learn in a Beginner class, this dance will simply be asking you to remember SEVERAL of them and to focus on how they relate to this specific piece of music. Other great things about this music: You will WANT to listen to this music over and over because it is so beautiful – so remembering your dance will be easy. There is a tiny drum solo embedded in the piece providing interesting variety! It has enough of a western sound so as to NOT make family/roommates/animals crazy when you practice.
4:43 in length. Music is available on ITunes.
