About the new format A-Z Bellydance - Why Live Music?

The development of the new format A-Z Bellydance was a slow, evolutionary process. The foundations of the methodology were rebuilt for dancers to learn, teach, create and adapt their movement more easily, in a variety of ways. The underlying structure of A-Z is based on "musical movement", reflecting the natural patterns, transitions, movement flow and body connectivity in bellydance.

Inspired by Egyptian music and dance, interfaced with influences that shaped modern Egyptian-styled danceforms, the patterns are represented by sequences. These sequences serve as invisible matrices, or motifs; the underlying structures which inform the internal experience, as well as the energy and expression of the movement.

 From years of observing organic movement patterns, and dancing with live Egyptian music, I’ve identified over 50 core patterns that seem to be repeated in various genres of dance from this region, or in dances inspired by Egyptian movement patterning. Any bellydance style influenced by Egyptian music or rhythms, tends to have a consistency in structure due to the musically-driven roots that underpin the dance, whist the addition of personalized or cultural gesture, signature movements, or certain trends, create context, expression and meaning.

The A-Z structures are simple enough to establish roots-based folkloric forms, or can progress forward into theatrical, contemporary or fusion genres of bellydance. If we work with the core patterns and somatic roots of this dance, we can move in any direction we wish – whether it be choreography, improvisation, stagecraft or stylization - with a secure, musically coherent base.

We explore all of this in the 2020 Year Long Teacher Training - with fortnightly classes, brand new course materials and 100% live Egyptian music. I look forward to sharing this with a great, diverse group of dancers, teachers and performers around the world.

Questions you may ask

Do I need to know the A-Z?

No. Sure it helps, but you can come in without having done the A-Z before. A minimum of 2 years bellydance experience is required for training at this level. Even if you have previously undertaken A-Z, the methodology is updated with so much more content in the new format. Discounts apply for old-format A-Z course graduates.

Do I need to buy any materials?

No need to buy anything more, the NEW course materials are all included in the training package. You will have your own study space on A-Z Bellydance School's Teachable platform, with access to our live group forum. You can access course content any time, from any device. You can also download your course materials.

How much study is required?

Allow 2 hours a week. Keti's guided group classes are delivered fortnightly, each module to be completed in a 2 week timeframe, choose your own study time. On average study lessons require 1 hour (video, audio, ebooks) plus 3 hours dance practice a week. That's about 25% theory, 75% practice!

Which study modes are used?

Studies include three modes; theory, practice & engagement. Methodology is learnt with theory, routines become choreos and improv skills are practiced. You will create your own choreos (solo/troupe) in Teacher Training. You additionally receive teaching sheets and an excellent range of professional teaching materials.
