Advanced dancer programme

 

I have wanted to offer this programme for a while now, and I think it wasn't until I had to navigate my way through teaching dance online during "Lockdown" that it inspired me to finally release my exciting new project!

 

I know people come to class for various reasons, be it the social aspect, for fitness or to learn the art of Middle Eastern dance!  However, once dancers have mastered the basics of belly dance and learnt some choreographies they often think "what next?"

 

I think this is where dancers can become a bit 'stuck' as they need to be challenged, inspired and motivated.  It is also difficut for teachers such as myself where classes are open level as I have to cater for varying levels of dance experience.

 

I have been dancing for over 15 years now and have a wealth of experience and knowledge that I want to share with my dancers.  I want to be able to motivate you to want to grow and develop your own unique dance style personal to you.

 

This is what inspired me to create the Advanced Dancer Programme.  It will run over 3 months & consists of the following:

* An initial one to one consulation

 (either in person, or via Zoom, depending on preference & circumstances!) to discuss your goals.  What do you hope to get out of this programme?  What do you feel your weaknesses are?  What would you like help with?

 

* A one to one Zoom class (40 mins)

Focusing on your personal goals and targeting the areas you need, or want, to work on.  This may be brushing up on technique, fluidity in moves, transitions, stage presence or a solo choreography... the list is endless!

 

* A weekly Zoom class with the other Advanced dancers

- 4 weeks of body conditioning - so important!

- 3 weeks of advanced technique and combinations

- 1 week theory based focusing on how to choose the right music for the dance you want to create.  I will share with you some Artists whose music is more suited to particular styles of dnace.  I personally find the hardest battle when creating a choreography is where to find music that inspires me !

- 4 weeks of learning a short but more advnaced choreography 

 

* A private Facebook group only open to advanced dancers

You can use this page to chat, inpsire each other or ask questions and I will be uploading a weekly link of either a song for you to try dancing to at your leisure or a clip of a belly dance performance that I think you will enjoy or be able to take something from,  You can learn so much just from watching other dancers!

 

* The chance to submit a video for feedback

This is optional of course, but often it takes someone else to highlight both the positives and the areas that could be improved, as we are our own worst critic!

The cost of this 3 month programme (beginning in January) is £45

Either as one payment in January or split over two months (January payment £25, February payment £20)

 

Please message me to sign up & I look forward to helping you grow as a dancer!
