Welcome to A-Z Bellydance! NEW format is out early 2018
Welcome to the A-Z Bellydance website! Here you'll find information on products, courses and media resources designed to enhance your bellydancing at any level. As bellydance evolves around the world, it becomes increasingly important to educate ourselves about the cultural aspects of the artform, to gain a broader perspective for artistic development. My research gravitates towards the Egyptian arts and preservation of traditions, as well as how bellydancing embraces change and transformation, and continues to integrate new ideas and forms of expression.
A-Z Courses are currently being refreshed and updated to reflect 20 years of enrichment, including new musicality and somatics components. New work includes an exploration of Egyptian music-movement phrases, connecting how matrix/pattern is reflected in common maqamat styles, plus how we 'dance the elements', integrating somatics, Laban, Bartenieff, sacred geometry, and awareness of body-energy centres. The aim is to "remember-integrate-release" so your body retains a deeper movement vocabulary. We work with live recordings of Egyptian classics.
Your sharing, feedback and contribution have all shaped the new methodology. The updated dvds and study courses filmed in Cairo, will be available from early 2018. Our community is wonderfully supportive, and we'd love you to be a part of it. Join my newsletter to stay posted! Members get the news first, and receive some great offers.
