|About A-Z Bellydance
A-Z Bellydance is an Egyptian inspired dance methodology that expands dance vocabulary and improves interpretive skills through a blend of progressive technique, somatic movement, cultural studies and musicality. Dancers will internalise new patterning and establish deeper movement memory, to improvise or choreograph with more naturalness, confidence and ease.
The A-Z Bellydance movement methodology for students and teachers was developed in Egypt, enriched over the span of 20 years, with inspiration from Egyptian dance pioneers, talented musicians, and research of the cultural and artistic traditions of Egypt. A-Z Original and Advanced sequences provide the foundation for almost all possible combinations in Raqs Sharqi, Baladi and Egyptian Folkloric dance. A-Z will take you on a journey through the Elements, to support your dance development and enhance your self awareness.
The methodology was
inspired by the concept of Egyptian dance 'aesthetics within a framework'. The program improves interpretive skills through a progressive series of sequences - each integrating layered technique, somatic movement, cultural studies and musicality. Each sequence establishes a matrix, and the cumulative matrices interlink seamlessly, vastly expanding the dancer's movement vocabulary. The patterning of each matrix is designed to be easily internalised and assimilated on many levels; physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically.
The new updated A-Z DVDs will be available in October 2017.
