Stage Directions for Belly Dancers

In this video, I’m going to be introducing you to stage directions. Knowing your Stage directions can help you to better understand and describe your position on stage, which way you are facing in relation to your audience, as well as which direction you may be traveling. Using stage directions provides us a method to more accurately describe stage locations so we can write and teach choreography more clearly. It also reminds us, when we are creating choreography, what our stage location possibilities are. This can help us to create more dynamic choreographies that use more of the stage, then just back and forth, and side to side.
