Want to create your own belly dance choreography? Whether you have done this before or you are creating your first, this class will offer you new ways to be creative. These semi-private classes will run every week for 6 weeks. You will learn important aspects of creating creative choreographies from inception to completion. How to listen to music to gain inspiration, improvisation, stage dynamics, use of space and shape, and much more. All you need is an open mind, some time set aside to work on your choreography every week, and a song you want to use.
Before class begins, please select a piece of Arabic music approx. 3-5 minutes long. I would suggest an oriental style piece with rhythm, mood, style changes, so it’s interesting to work with. No drum solos or fusion, please. If you are unsure of your selection, please contact Anna BEFORE the classes begin, so you will be ready with your song selection.
To best prepare for this class, be sure to carve time in your schedule to complete weekly assignments. This is a PROJECT class, so it’s expected that you will do your homework to present the following week.
Non-AAMED Students: You can join in the fun even if you aren’t in our program! 1-2 yrs previous belly dance experience is highly suggested.
AAMED Students: Completion of your weekly assignments will account for 50% of your project grade. Completion of your choreography within 3 months of project start date will account for the remaining 50% of your project grade.
