Broaden your understanding of musicality and how your dance expression relates to the music playes, and be able to identify the genres and stylisations the music represents. Features music samples and choreos to enhance musicality and appreciation of cultural styles.

This 8 week support course applies to anyone doing A-Z Original or Advanced Personal Techniques, or Teacher Training courses.

You will receive seminars online, mini choreos, plus MP3 music tracks. Then we spend the last 2 weeks completing the examinations, by giving you a new online exam form to easily submit your written exam, and help you prepare to film your 5 x sets of clips with confidence and clarity, ready for assessment. We will then assess your clips QUICKLY within a week, and you'll receive your detailed report.

The aim of this 8 Week Support Group is to have you certified by March 2016, with a feeling of confidence and genuine accomplishment!

resented a survey rating the A-Z Original dvd to readers, who gave the dvd *five out of five* stars. Shira herself writes "I like this video very much. It is filmed with professional lighting and sound quality, and the camera work almost always makes it easy to see what I want to see. Both the (A-Z) companion book and the back cover of the video list the combinations in order, making it easy to identify how far into the video you need to find the group of moves that you want to study.

A-Z Advanced Review in Gilded Serpent Magazine - Monica Bellini from Gilded Serpent reviewed the Advanced A-Z dvd and said "Australian instructor Keti Sharif has created a treasure for dancers desiring advanced material to work and study with at home." And regarding the dvd "Through it all Keti Sharif manages the rare trick of presenting belly dance as a challenging and ethnically rooted dance form, as well as a constantly growing and dynamic art form."

The following DVDs and concepts utilise Keti's A-Z routines: World Dance Aerobics, Pulse8 Fitness, Body Quake Elements, Jewel of Arabia. AstroBelly's 12 routines are designed to perfectly fit together with A-Z routines, further expanding your dance vocabulary!

How are A-Z routines presented on DVD?
The routines are demonstrated on DVD. Each routine is broken down step-by-step, viewed the front, then the back, and finally as a complete dance sequence to music. Supplemented with A-Z instructional booklet with easy to follow notes.
