Are you an aspiring belly dancer and you want to learn the secrets to making the most out of your first performances?
In this mini-workshop series, Anna is going to share her most time-tested, stage-proven, performance preparation tips!
The first lesson – just in case you didn’t know – is there is so much more that goes into making a great belly dance performance than just knowing the movements and being able to remember your choreography.
A belly dancer is like a magician…
In a magic show, the masterful magician makes many very quick, hidden actions, that are imperceptible to the audience.
A good belly dancer is no different!
Making your performance seem “magical” and effortless, like a good magician, takes a lot of mindful practice and preparation in the days and months leading up to the show, to create that convincing illusion.
Are you ready?

- Build a strong connection to the music, beat, and tempo
