NEW: interactive, personalised bellydance course for improver/intermediate dancers who want to take their dancing to the next level.

Ready for a new challenge, motivation or spark to help develop your dancing, but struggling to find the right courses or time to attend them? Then this course, run in March and April 2018, is for you.

Advance Your Dance Online is tailored to fit your needs and is as highly interactive as any live workshop, but with the benefit of being online, so no need to spend money and time travelling. Join from the comfort of your home at a time that suits you.

The course will start at the beginning of March and run for 6 weeks, with live sessions taking place at weekends, and study materials provided throughout the weeks. Live sessions are recorded for you to view later, so should you not be able to attend you won’t miss out. There will be a break over Easter to allow everyone to catch up and consolidate their learning.

There are limited spaces to ensure the high quality of teaching which is at the core of this course. This will help make sure you really do ‘advance your dance online’. Book now or read more about what to expect.

 

What we’ll cover

This is a highly personalised program tailored to benefit those signed up, hence the limited spaces, but we will also cover the following to help take your dancing to the next level:

  • Advanced dance technique and combos
  • Music and styles
  • Dance flow and improvisation techniques
  • Choreography master class
  • Stage craft and performance skills
  • Advanced arm technique

What to expect

This online course is inspired by my Advance Your Dance studio courses, which I’ve taught to intermediate to advanced level students for the past 3 years with some amazing results. My teaching style is quite ‘technical’ and the reason why my students progress and develop so quickly.

I focus a lot on posture and muscular control, which are the foundations for all good dance technique. Check out what my students stay about my teaching and classes here.

The course is aimed at improver to intermediate students of Egyptian dance, but in my live classes I’ve also successfully taught non-egyptian dancers and helped them improve their dancing across different styles. The emphasis and music however will be on Egyptian bellydance.

There won’t be homework as such, but you will be expected to prepare ahead of live session and 1-2-1s.

 

What’s included

This course is fully packed with resources I’ve built up over the two decades that I’ve been teaching. I’m probably giving away more than is necessary, but I’d rather that you decide whether it’s useful for you here and now, or want to save it for future reference. The different elements of the course can be broken down into the following:

  • Personal dance development 1-2-1 to uncover your weaknesses and strengths and help you progress
  • 5 live class sessions (60 min each)
  • Dance drills to strengthen and improve your technique
  • Study sheets and background notes
  • Pre-recorded technique videos
  • Audio recordings to assist your practise
  • 30 minutes online 1-2-1
  • Optional: half price 1-2-1 to be taken within 2 months of finishing the course, to ensure your technique development (because it’s advisable you allow yourself time to digest and work on your dance technique but also have a follow up within a few months to ensure you’re on the right way and still feeling confident putting your newly learned skills to use)

The course will deliver over 14 hours of tuition, but to fully benefit you should set aside time to practise ahead of live sessions including 1-2-1s. However being online, you have full flexibility about where and when you access the course materials. The live sessions will also be recorded for you to review, or view if you couldn’t make them, at a time convenient to you.

All this for only £129. Book now.

What other say

You can read more about me and my professional dance and performance journey here. For the past few years I’ve been teaching and mentoring more and more students all over the world via online 1-2-1s. The results have been amazing, but don’t just take my word for it. Here are some of the things that my professional dance colleagues and students say about me and my teaching:

“Ishtar’s passion for dance is infectious. The supportive, inclusive environment she creates for her students is like a warm embrace for the whole community. You need go no further than Ishtar’s students to witness her dedication to sharing and teaching dance,” Nuxya Ne, Professional Bellydancer, London

“Her advice is timeless and will really develop your dancing,” Rose Barter, Bellydance Teacher, Wales

“I never thanked Ishtar enough for helping me growing as a dancer. There’s no pressure at all, but you also have the opportunity to push yourself to the next level if you wish. I took 1-2-1 lessons with her, which helped me deal with my weaknesses and lack of self-confidence. Thanks to her help and support, I also found the courage to perform,” Sonja Beccaceci, Bellydancer, Italy
