Everyone loves a good Saidi, whether you incorporate a cane or not. Continuing on from my basic Saidi steps tutorial, I’m sharing some more advanced steps and combinations with you. If you’re a seasoned dancer then this may not be for you. But if you’re still relatively new to the style, or if you’re planning to teach it, then this can add variety and perhaps inspire other Saidi combinations that you may be doing.
Check out my Basic Saidi post for background information and a video breaking down the key basics.
Today’s video is all about creating ‘easy’ combinations using the basics as well as more advanced steps such as the Rik and the Hagalla. You can view tutorials for both those moves on my YouTube channel here.
Depending on the styling of your Saidi, it should generally be fun and fabulous. Maybe also fierce, but that’s down to personal preference and choice of music. But less is defiantly more when it comes to folkloric styles like this, so keep it simple and sassy.
I hope the video will help you, either in your own dancing or your teaching. Please feel free to leave me a comment below, so I know how you’re getting on, or if you’d like to share your own experiences of learning or teaching Saidi.
Let’s keep the knowledge sharing going, and encourage beautiful and safe dancing.
Happy dancing 🙂
