Musicality for Bellydancers
is a NEW resource - an online educational seminar - 4 X VIDEO SEMINARS and a comprehensive 50 PAGE EBOOK, with new clips from my years of music-movement research in Cairo, and recent worldwide survey. The course is delivered online.

Music-movement relationships are the foundation for bellydance, and understanding instinctive responses helps us merge with the music more creativity. Learn to identify a variety of Arabic musical instruments and compositional styles, along with the cultural genres they represent. Explore various rhythmic forms and tempo ranges, and see how they directly influence improvisation and choreography.

1. Arabic Instruments, Music & Culture

  In Cairo, I conducted a 'blind study' where bellydancer Liza Laziza danced to a group of Egyptian musicians, who played each instrument individually, and as orchestral compositions. Some of the high-speed photos showed powerfully resonnant music-movement responses and are shown in the video seminars and ebook.
