Zils: Bridging The Gap DVD
Get this exclusive DVD for only $ 5 while supplies last (a $25 value)!! 

A simple step by step guide for learning and evolving your rhythm, coordination, and overall zil technique.

Zils are not just an instrument or a lovely dance companion; they are also a great way to get in touch with the rhythm of the music and heighten your awareness of your arms and hands (often the first casualty of a belly dancer)!
In our popular Zils: Bridging The Gap DVD, Karen Barbee will walk you through her basic technique for playing zils -- while seated! But mastering finger cymbals while holding still is not what a dancer needs. Each subsequent chapter will introduce more complex movement patterns while playing zils until entire combinations are developed.

Karen also introduces the concept of "zil-provisation" -- a way to practice zils and improvisation using various formats for combination building. Finally, Karen includes a chapter on more advanced zils work such as playing portions of a beat and accents. Run time approx. 55 minutes.

All of our DVDs and CDs are shipped free of charge.  Click here to check out our DVD and CD collections.
