To unlock your star power, dance smarter. This is belly dance instruction for smart cookies. Like you! Star belly dancer Autumn Ward teaches clean versatile technique, adaptable to cultural, tribal, and fusion styles.
A $19.99 monthly subscription unlocks access to all videos. Or pay for one video at a time with 10-day rentals. Your subscription includes a 7-day free trial; if the studio is not right for you, you may cancel and you will not be charged.
Programs are cataloged two ways: by type, sorted in the menu bar above (drop down the lower bar if you’re browsing from a phone); and by level, sorted on the categories page. Additionally, if you’re browsing from a desktop, see both categories and tags on the left hand sidebar. If you’re not sure what you’re in the mood for, you may also view titles by paging through cover images in the full catalog. Step-by-step movement breakdowns are grouped in the Athenaeum. Workshops focus on a specific topic. Classes are self-contained programs that teach general skills; courses are longer programs with individual modules, meant to be taken in order. If you are brand new to belly dance, start with the Absolute Beginner Course. Open level programs contain content that may be useful to dancers at any skill level.
Even if you have not subscribed, short trailers are available for many programs. Look for the “view preview” option on the embedded video, and click for a clip, or in some cases a longer introduction.
Some of the programs included in your subscription are sold elsewhere, but this site is Autumn’s personal distribution hub, and the premiere platform for her content. When you stream or rent through this website (or directly on Autumn’s Pivotshare page, where the videos are hosted), you directly support Autumn’s work, which in turn allows Autumn to make more videos for you. Additionally, Autumn’s video player supports chaptered content, so you can go directly to (and repeat) sections of a program. For many programs, choreography notes are exclusively available through this platform (available as downloads with your subscription or rental).
