Tamiil - Level 2 Choreography

Hi Level 2 Class! 

We are working on a beautiful song titled "Tamiil" by Mario Kirlis. It's from one of his older albums (2004). If you haven't discovered Mario Kirlis yet you are in for a treat. He's the perfect musician for bellydancers. He works closely with the popular Saiida. Born to Syrian parents, raised in Argentina she has traveled the world performing and teaching her beautiful balletic brand of bellydance. Saiida did a short stint with the "Bellydance Superstars" you can find her on the "Bellydance Superstars Introduction to Bellydance" DVD.

Here is a clip of  of Mario Kirlis' band and Saida doing their thing.


 


AS FOR OUR CHOREOGRAPHY...

We are working on our very own dance to Tamil. Here I will list the notes and eventually I will post a demo video. Here is part  one . I hope this helps you learn it, remember it, etc.
