Bellydance Workshops

I have classified these workshops into different levels. It is difficult to assign levels to bellydancers, as someone who is advanced at cabaret style, for example, may be new to Beledi or Ghawazee style. These are entirely my own opinion, yours may be very different! However, it's important if you want to book me to teach that we both understand what level will be taught.

In general I would classify Beginners as having danced for less than 10 classes, Improvers as having done more than 10 classes but have danced under a year. Intermediate has danced for at least a year, feels confident with most techniques they use, has generally good posture when dancing, has done some informal performing and understands that bellydance has different styles. Higher Intermediate can dance in at least 3 different styles, can perform solo and feels confident with their technique and has a good posture when dancing. Advanced performs and/or teaches, is proficient in their technique, has great posture, can improvise at the drop of a hat, and has an excellent understanding of at least 4 of the following: Beledi style, Egyptian Classical, Saiidi, Veil Dance, Tribal, Ghawazee, Persian, North African dance, Rai, Turkish cabaret, American cabaret, a dance involving balance eg Sword.
