Powerfully Present: Mind, Body, and Breath Integration for Belly Dance Video

Powerfully Present DVD Cover

Neisa has filmed a new instructional video, "Powerfully Present: Mind, Body, and Breath Integration for Belly Dance," featuring her "belly dance katas," which are short sequences of coordinated movement and breathing inspired by the forms martial artists use to master their techniques.

These exercises are designed to help dancers focus on the feelings of correct posture, breathing, movement flow, and mental focus so that they become second nature when dancing.

The video is currently in editing, and is expected to be released in Late Summer 2015.

Preorders were be taken during Shimmy 2B Free in Denver, June 12-14, and Kickstarter funding will commence sometime during the last 2 weeks of June 2015, so come back for more information on how to get your copy first!

It’s time to touch base with you on a project update.  I’ve made a carefully considered decision to change my dance name from Neisa Salima to Courtney Anne. My given name feels to me like a more genuine expression of what I want to convey with my dance, and I’m very excited to announce the change to everyone who has supported and encouraged me!

Some technical factors, combined with the name change, have stretched out the editing process for my video, Powerfully Present: Mind, Body, and Breath Integration for Belly Dance. We’re back in the studio for a couple small reshoots in the next couple of weeks, and we’ll update you as we go after that!

I’d like to share this free mp3 download of "Chiftetelli Vison" from the "Powerfully Present" soundtrack with you to tide you over while we finish our completed video. It seems to be many people's favorite pieces from the soundtrack, and I hope you enjoy it!  Please see below for the link to the file and download instructions.

I want to officially thank everyone who has supported this vast undertaking! It means so much to have such a dedicated community of dancers standing behind my vision!

The Powerfully Present video features an original soundtrack with music mixed and composed by Neisa Salima. The soundtrack includes music specifically designed for practicing the belly dance katas, both indivudually and as a sequence.

The CD will be available soon as a Kickstarter reward, but here's a sneak peak of some of the music if you didn't get your copy early at Neisa's Shimmy 2B Free workshop on June 14th!
