Advance Your Dance Online

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

The enrolment for this course, which will run throughout March and April 2018, has now closed. But you can sign up to my newsletter if you’d like to join the next round of this unique and highly specialised course.

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. See the FAQ video explaining it all here.

The course will start at the beginning of March 2018 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 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’. You can see my latest video where I explain all the details of how the course works here.

 

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.

Pre-recorded Classes and Drills

Join one of my ready made classes and learn where and when it suits you. These classes are suitable for all levels, but if you’re new to Belly Dance, I recommend that you attend a few live classes first to ensure your posture and basic technique is correct. It’s very hard to unlearn bad habits!

Price: FREE. Select your class here.

All you need is a good broadband connection and a device with both loudspeaker and microphone. This way of learning is suitable for everything from technique development to choreography and performance advice.
