Next StepsThis course is designed for those with some MED/Belly Dance experience. A minimum of 10 hours of previous belly dance classes is required (for instance my Introduction to Belly Dance).
Term length varies but a 10-week term is $110 (or groups of classes may be bought) - see class pricing details
Drop in classes available sometimes for $18/lesson.
Content will depend on students in the course. Suggestions include:
|Revision of Basic Technique||A chance to revisit the technique taught in this course. Now you are probably fitter and more flexible something that you had difficulty with initially may now seem easier. A chance for those who have mastered the basics to polish and extend their ability.|
|Basic Technique combinations||A chance to stretch the brain while sticking with the basics|
|Introduction to Zills||
A chance to work on playing zills while extending your basic technique
(75 minutes of zill playing initially is too much). Students need their own zills.
Not recommended for people with RSI/OUS.
|Introduction to Veil||Students need their own veil.|
|Boss Amany choreography||A short upbeat choreography using basic moves|
|Costume Making||How to go about making a basic costume of circle skirt, bra & belt, and optional pantaloons. Some sewing skill is required and access to a sewing machine.|
|Moving Across the Floor||Walking, turns, and spins|
A theatrical Egyptian dance style based on the urban working class.

|A range of choreographies||In a range of styles including Egyptian, conempoary, veil, sa`iidi, fellahi|
|Improvisation||Working with ideas for expressing the music without stress|
As with the Introductory course the classes are small (4-8 students) which allow maximum flexibility.
