Do you freak out when you are faced with the task of improv belly dance? Do you want to have your dance flow naturally without looking canned and choreographed? Do you want to feel confident when you are dancing to live music?
Well I have great news! You will be able to tap into your magical belly dance genius after this class. You won’t be afraid anymore to just get up and “wing it”. You will feel and look like a pro once you know how to have the tools and confidence to get through any performance.
- We will start with basic stretches and gentle pulsing exercises to warm the body.
- Each class will be about one hour in length and we will have class once a week for 7 weeks. (plus the bonus class) Total of 8 classes.
- I will add a live drummer to one of the classes so we can understand the complexities of music and one class dedicated to taxim with live accordion.
- These classes will be downloaded to your computer and you can work at your own pace, but only one class per week will be released.
- We will also have a special LIVE workshop for questions and comments date to be determined, after poll is conducted of the class participants.
- There will be a special private FB group where we can interact and share and ask questions, and you can join the previous students who were enrolled in January.

The last audition there were 7 professional performers, and me, just ‘coming out” one of the judges commented to another friend, who told me that I was the stand out performer!!!! Thank you so much. I couldn’t have done it without you. Everyone is just gushing over my dancing lately. That’s all. Just wanted to share! I am so joyful that I had to share my happy time with you.” -SV (Improv student)

Of all the videos I’ve streamed so far on this website, the megeance one by you Aleya, is by far my most favorite. I found the instruction was very clear and easy to understand, but the material was challenging. It’s a very interesting choreography. –Shannon
