Find The Right Class For You
The Level One/Beginner course is aimed primarily at beginner belly dancers and those who want to work on their core skills. It was developed out of the desire to provide well structured classes focused on the most important skills, while still being fun, exciting and achievable. After 16 years of teaching beginners Sara has evolved a course that is suitable for all those who want to learn the core skills of belly dance without getting bored by repetition or disheartened by over ambition.
After a good warm up each lesson should start out fairly easy, with a new move, which is new to everyone in the room. The second move will be slightly harder. It will be a reminder or an adaptation of a move we all worked on last week. Perhaps we will layer on arms, traveling or styling. By leaving it a week between learning the basic move and adding to it, you have time to practice and fully understand how your body moves before trying to layer.
As part of our weekly drills we will practice our shimmy with the aim to increase its intensity and length as the weeks pass. To finish the session we will put the moves together and discuss one of the key aspects of belly dance and how it affects you as a new dancer.
If you have any questions during the lessons you can talk to Sara, or you can email her after to discuss something in more detail.
Level one classes are also essential for any dancer who wants to move on to the advanced level or to become a professional dancer. The core moves need to be regularly re-visited in order to improve over all technique and to perfect more complex moves. Troupe dancers should attend a weekly beginners class.
Level Two Classes are open to anyone who has attended 15 to 20 beginner classes - either with LetsBellyDance or another teacher. You are welcome to continue with a level one while also attending a level two if you feel your technique could be improved, or you are unsure which class would suit you best. Level two classes focus on developing each dancer's individual style and skill set.
