Tips for Dancing with Isis Wings
For a really stunning belly dance performance, Isis wings can do wonders. While some purists belly dancers believe that the Isis wings take away too much attention from other body parts, Isis wings can be used to emphasize all other moves and get the audience to take notice.
When using Isis wings, it is important that you don’t think of them as a prop. The Isis wings should be used as extensions of your own arms. Just like you should keep your arms in proper position while dancing, your Isis wings must also be in position so they work well with your poses. Keep in mind that Isis wings should not be moved up, down, front or back. They should be in curving motions (like a figure eight) to keep them flowing nicely. To get a nice effect, experiment with varying the speed of Isis wings. You can also experiment with making the Isis wings go fast while other body parts move slowly or vise versa. When you purchase your Isis wings, make sure that they are the right size for your body.
