Hi I'm Keti Sharif. Welcome to A-Z Bellydance! My courses offer a Somatic approach for mindful movement and focus on fluidity, ease and musical responsivity. A-Z provides progressively paced learning for dance development and creativity, and helps dancers retain techniques they have learnt. 

I've crafted A-Z Bellydance and Astrobelly sequences to reflect a multitude of naturally occuring patterns and motifs within Egyptian music. The scope of movement pathways are highly adaptable and easy to personalise, so dancers can build a rich movement vocabulary for both choreography and improvisation. 

The Somatic qualities of the 'seeds' provide creative opportunities through awareness of energy, timing, focus/flow, and weight-sensing. When dance movement is sensed fully and expressed naturally, the whole experience becomes easier and more satisfying.

The methodology draws on my years living in Egypt, learning with Mahmoud Reda, and later Farida Fahmy, who inspired my Somatic path. Enrichment also came from Egyptian artists and countless family celebrations with Cairean friends. A-Z also references years of research into Egyptian music; from conducting worldwide surveys to recording and working directly with musicians of various cultural genres. 

A-Z Bellydance is currently being taught in 40 countries worldwide and we have a wonderfully diverse, creative and supportive community.
