This summer I’ve been busy with starting up new classes in the studio and creating workshops that cater to belly dancers needs. The results were great: I had two sold out workshops plus four new students for my weekly classes! Teaching the workshops was so much fun, that I wanted to give more dancers the opportunity to join in. The only question was: how? I joined the fabulous team of teachers at the Belly Dance Business Academy and I will create several classes a year for their curriculum.
The first class that I amteaching is ‘Playlist Essentials for Bellydancers’.
Music is essential to belly dancers, as our body translates the music into motion. That is why knowledge of music is important, plus it is really fun to listen to the songs that move us.
- someone who wants a better understanding of Middle-Eastern music
- A student who likes to listen to belly dance music but don’t know where to start?
- a dancer who wants a go-to practice playlist?
- an instructors looking for songs to explain, practice and drill?
This course is for you! In this course we explore different types and styles of music to create your own personal belly dance playlist. With this playlist, you are ready to teach a last-minute class, you can practice on the fly and you’ll knock your teachers socks off with your knew found knowledge of belly dance music.
