【NADIA ONLINE LESSON】★ August lesson starts!


Hello! It's Nadia. How are you all? :)

I hope to see you all soonest and resume our lessons in the studio, however, Singapore is still in Phase 2. Although the studio of Raffles Town Club is reopening, there is a limit of 5 people or less and it is mandatory to wear a mask while dancing, so about doing a dance exercise while wearing a mask, I personally question how effective in term of what's good for your body as exercise?

I am always focusing on how to use the body while breathing in dance and yoga, so I do not wish to recommend us to dance lessons with masked on. Naturally, breathing is a set for muscle growth. I would like to wait for Phase 3 or the day after it opens to have lessons without a mask.

From your living room or the clean studio that you have chartered to yourself, protecting yourself by social distance, and take a nice breather and work out in comfort. Let me continue to teach online and pursue the uniqueness of online classes!

In the lesson of the previous term, I asked the participants to submit a dance video to show me, and I gave each one a comment on the points to be improved (only for applicants). It was very well received, so let me see the timing and try them again soon, how you think?

Well, I have been working as a bellydance competition judge for many years, so I can instantly identify the strengths and improvements of the dancer, and convey them in words. That's part of my work.

We have private lesson by online lessons now a days, but I would like to consider using it together with video lessons with comment reports. If you have a great idea about this, please let me know what you think! :)

Now. Thank you for your waiting!
The new lesson starts on Sunday, August 2nd!

If you have been too busy to take lessons for a while, why don't you restart from August? NADIA's online lessons welcome students at all levels.

Bellydance for beginners, experienced students, and teacher-level professional dancers who have own classes, I do look at everyone's point of view, class will be taught to share always something fresh and upgraded knowledge to all of you.

We also have a group chat exclusively for members, so please do not hesitate to ask Nadia many questions.

Choreography class in August, we will dance the new Mejanse!

The song I chose this time is  "Habibi" , a song by Mercedes Nieto. The melody line and chorus are also very catchy, so would it be easy for those who are new to dancing Mejanse? I chose the song for you. "Habibi" is an Arabic word (for someone important) "YOU". It is used for loved ones like darling and my dear.

Mejanse is an Arab song specially composed for bellydance. Bellydancers always dance Mejanse at first in the show lineup to let show opens gorgeously. It feels like an overture in classical music, and combines the elements of the preview of the show that begins in the future, so various songs and musical styles are included in one song. It is an orthodox Egyptian-style bellydance song that starts from the entrance, develops numerous rhythms, and continues to the last of the masterpiece.

Musical instruments used in Arab music (violin, nay, qanun, oud, darbukka, etc) have many musical developments that make them attractive, and when you dance in Mejanse, you feel as if you are having a superb full-course dinner. Let's enjoy plenty from appetizers to desserts! ;)

The length is often about 10 minutes or more, and the song selected this time was originally 9 and a half minutes to edit in about 5 minutes for you to dance. To all the participants of the lesson, we provide the sound source edited by Nadia as a teaching material. Also, choreography videos taken on the back and face-to-face are delivered once a week on WhatsApp group chat.

There will be veil work again this time! Perhaps this is the last time I will teach veil in the year of 2020. If you want to learn veil, please do not miss it.

I teach the choreography to be completed in 2 months. We will proceed with the goal at the end of September, so lets start dancing with me! :)

Date & Time ▶︎ Every Sunday, Monday, Thursday 
BASIC 10:00-10:50 | CHOREO 10:50-11:40 | YOGA 11:40-12:30 | (50min in each class)

The BASIC CLASS is also very popular one which starts at 10am in the morning Singapore time.  Why don't you join us between your remote work? Your body must be much refreshed!

Up to now, I have taught in 40-minute per class, but it seems everyone wants more? ;) So, from this month, I would like to extend to 50 minutes per class.

Along with the wonderful Arab music of Nadia's selection, you wake up your body with a gentle stretch and move your body to warm up the whole body in time.

Then, what muscles from your head to the tip of your foot should be used to create the movement of bellydancing? From the perspective of anatomy, unravel, practice and commentary, just keep on drill, and drill! 

If you are not taking this basic class, the way you enter the choreography class is completely different. You started to feel "Oh? My body moves!".

Continuation is the power, isn't it? 

Would you like to create a "Body as Dancer" = "Body that you can move flexibly", and at the same time, aim to strengthen your core and improve your basic metabolism?

Date & Time ▶︎ Every Sunday, Monday, Thursday

YOGA is the Sanskrit word for "connection" and refers to the state where the mind, body and soul are connected. It combines breathing, posture, and meditation to relieve tension in the body and mind, and stabilise and ease the mind.

Yoga poses which calls "Asanas" have the effect of correcting body distortions, improving flexibility and physical fitness, etc., but combining relaxed breathing and meditation enhances concentration and a gentle and stable mental state. 

The effects of breathing on the body and mind are so deep. The breathing method, which is also the basis of yoga, increases vitality and concentration by controlling breathing, and connects the mind and body. 

It also has the effect that oxygen is sent to each cell and activated from inside the body. By expanding and contracting muscles and deep breathing, the lymph flow and blood circulation are improved, and the internal organs are activated, your body refreshed and comfortable, but it also helps prevent skin aging.

By the end of each lesson, it is impressive that the participants' faces look so refresh and sharp.

This class will also be extended to 50-minute class from this month.

As it coincides with lunchtime, those who are doing remote work at home, why don't  you join us as lunchtime yoga? You should be able to work from the afternoon with a refreshing feeling! :)

【NADIA ONLINE LESSON】★ 8月レッスン始まります!

*English Version is coming up soon.


そろそろ皆さんにお会いして、スタジオでのレッスン再開を願っていますが、シンガポールは未だにフェーズ2のまま。Raffles Town Clubのスタジオは営業再開してはいるのですが、5名以下の人数制限と、踊っている最中はマスク着用が義務付けられるので、マスク着用してのダンス・エクササイズをすることについて、個人的には疑問を感じています。











8月の振付クラスは、 新作メジャンセを踊りますよ!

今回、選んだ曲は、メルセデス・ニエトのメジャンセ曲 "Habibi"。メロディラインやコーラスもとてもキャッチーなので、初めてメジャンセを踊るという方にも入りやすいかな?と思い選曲しました。"Habibi"はアラブ語で(大切な人をさして)「あなた」。ダーリンとか、my dearのように、愛しい人にむけて使われます。






- - - - - - -




この基礎クラス、受講してるのとしてないのでは、振付クラスでの振りの入っていき方が全然違う。「あれ?体が動く!」と感じるようになったのは、コツコツ基礎を積んでいるからです。継続は力なり!ですね。「踊れる体」= 「自由に動ける体」を作りあげ、同時に、体幹強化、基礎代謝アップを狙いませんか?

- - - - - - -
レッスン日時 ▶︎ 毎週 日曜・月曜・木曜
| BASIC 10:00-10:50 | CHOREO 10:50-11:40 | YOGA 11:40-12:30 | (各50分クラス)
- - - - - - -

ヨガとは、サンスクリット語で「つながり」を意味し、心と体、魂が繋がっている状態のことを表します。 呼吸、姿勢、瞑想を組み合わせて、心身の緊張をほぐし、心の安定とやすらぎを得るものです。

【NADIA Bellydance School】★ 今後の予定について (2020-2021)




思えば、今年のナディアは、予定ではかなりアクティブかつ、グローバルに動くはずだったんです(涙)。ベトナム、マレーシアでのフェスに出演が決まっていたり、シンガポールでの10周年公演の企画オーガナイズ、秋にはエジプトのフェス参加、冬は恒例の東京公演も決まっていました。当然、全てキャンセル (or 見合わせ中)。今は、ラプンツエルみたいに塔の上の小さな部屋で、ひっそりと自粛生活を続けています。




不要不急の外出を控え、本当に必要な物「エッセンシャル」だけを残した生活。生き方の断捨離をしたような思いもあります。当然、家族や友人の存在、そして、私に残るのは、やはり、"踊ること" (= 情熱) なのだということを再確認したこと。









① オンラインレッスン生によるハフラ in 東京
→ 早ければ今年12月に。状況次第になりますが、遅くとも来春までには開催をしたいです。この件、お手伝いをしてくださる方を募集いたします。シンガポールチーム2〜3名、東京チーム2〜3名。お手伝い頂けそうな方は、是非、メッセージをください。Zoomミーティングにて、会場やコンセプトなどを一緒に決めて、進めていきたいです。

②「A Night of Orient Vol.5」シンガポールでの劇場公演 (リベンジ企画)
→ 来春4月、シンガポールにて。今年の4月に中止となった同公演のリベンジ企画をします。出演者はこれから決定していきますが、ナディアスクールレッスン生および、オンラインレッスンを定期受講されている方に出演の機会をシェアしていきたいと思っています。この公演ののエンディングで、現在教えているエルファンを、CDまたは生演奏の群舞で踊りたいと思っています。現在のレッスン受講者で、来春にこの企画に参加できそうな方は教えてください。現時点では、確実でなくても結構なので、やってみたいお気持ちがある方が何名ほどいらっしゃるかを知りたいので遠慮なく言ってください。決定の場合は、初となるオンラインとオフライン併用、Zoomでのリハーサルレッスンも開催します。リハレッスンになると、ナディアのドS感は今のレッスンの約10倍くらいになりますので笑、ご覚悟くださいませw。これは初企画で、実現したら面白いですね!

③ 「Magical Monday」マンスリーハフラ in BluJaz (リベンジ企画)
→ 今年春からスタートするはずだった同企画をリベンジしたいと考えています。現状はまだ飲食のみの営業ですがエンタメが可能になった時点で人数制限つきのショーを企画します。毎月第一月曜夜にミニハフラをする企画です。人数制限が設けられるはずで、それが極端に少ない場合は、映像作品として発信していけるようなイベントに育てる予定。こちらもオンライン・オフラインレッスン生に向けて、積極的に出演チャンスを差し上げたいと考えています。この件、決定次第またアップデートいたしますね。








また、プライベートレッスンについては、スタジオでのリアルレッスン(オフライン)を開始します。スタジオは私を含めて3名までになりますので、マンツーマン、またはセミプライベート の場合は、生徒さん2名までとなります。現在、教えている作品についてさらに細かい指導をご希望される方、それから過去作品や、他に習ってみたいテクニックなどある方はどうぞご相談ください。平日でも週末でも対応可能です。

【NADIA ONLINE】★ NEW Lesson Starts on 1st June!

Hello! ★ This is Nadia.

"Circuit Breaker" will be finally ended on June 1. The release will be done in 3 phases, after the transition to Phase 2, finally small groups of social activities including the recreation and fitness businesses will be allowed.

If the things going well, we might be able to resume our studio lesson by the end of June or early July! ❤︎

However, for the time being there is a high possibility that there will be restrictions on the number of people (probably 5 or less) for the studio lessons, and some other policies.

Based on that, as our lessons after June onwards, we will continue Online Lessons until the situation stabilized. And, the time of entering Phase 2, let me organise a small number of participants in the studio lessons.

For regular lessons at Raffles Town Club, let me announce the new policy and pricing based on "New-Normal" as soon as they reopen the facility.


Now, we continue our online lessons from June, but I would like to think separately from studio lessons and bring you a fun time that demonstrates the individuality unique to online.

NADIA's online lessons are global lessons that connect with students around the world. Share bellydance time with your friends who once danced together with you in Singapore's studio, or even new friends connected through SNS, from Japan, Singapore, the United States, Europe and all over the world.

A nostalgic reunion and a new encounter.

What kind of interaction will online students have with each other in the future? I really want to focus on that too. The final goal is to meet in real offline and have a 'members-only HAFLA' in Singapore or Tokyo when Phase 3 ended? Why not?!

As a "new normal", for the time being, the way you take lessons, how to hold shows and events will change. What can you do online, rather than lament that you can't? Why don't you change it to a positive and creative idea?

As your study material, music & videos will be provided. As well as Nadia's explanation illustration for your better understanding! I hope!! LOL

Please use the choreography video for lesson preparation and review. Questions and answers are also accepted in group chats. Thanks to your questions, I think that we can give answers with various approaches and deepen our knowledge together.

However, we will not archive or distribute the full video of the lesson itself. The reason is because we emphasise an opportunity of being "connecting on live".

Please feel the importance of communicating through a screen at a fixed time, and how "contact" with them has a wonderful positive effect on the lonely battle of self-restraint life. I've been experiencing it myself for the last two months, so it's a lesson I can recommend to everyone with confidence.


There are 3 lessons a day. We offer 39 frames per month.
You can take as many classes as you like at the same price.

First of all, the BASIC class, which starts at 10am, is a class that teaches the basics of bellydance, but teaches the "posture" (basic pose) that is the basics of dance, and how to make the trunk and axes for that.  From an anatomical point of view, where is the center of gravity and which muscle is used to create that posture? How do you define the range of motion to make it look beautiful? At the same time as your dancing skills improve, your performance will become beautiful. 

People who dance in any genre look younger. It's not my fault. There is a basis! :)

Take lessons as "basic drills to be beautiful as a woman" rather than "basic drills to dance well". You can take it regardless of age, body type, dance background, or exercise experience.

You don't have to show your navel. No worry! ;p

Rather than that, the pelvis position, which is an iron rule in dancing the oriental dance! When you prepare it, improve your O legs, and get out of your self-restraining life, don't you wish to get dressed in beautiful clothes and get ready to go out on the street? :)

Next. The CHOREO class starting at 10:40.

In the CHOREO class from June, you will learn Oriental dance while being attracted to wonderful Arab music. Let's study music explanations and routines that match the rhythm.

For the assignment song, "El Fan" (Mario Kirlis Version) sing the wings of isis, which was planned to be taught in a studio lesson in April, is now arranged so that it can be dance with silk veil at home. I would like to be able to switch from the veil to the wing to dance at the same time when the studio is restarted.

In the future, I have a dream to produce a veil and wing joint group dance! It can be a collaboration between Tokyo and Singapore? Come and join us at the 'A Night of Orient' festival produced by Nadia, when the right time comes!!

The choreography will be completed in about eight weeks.

Last but not least, about the YOGA STRETCH class. Starting from last month, this new class is a very popular lesson, with a lot of happy screams every time!

This class aims to increase the flexibility and strength of the entire body, but especially for the belly dance, the softness around the abdomen to the thighs is carefully measured along with deep breathing. We also introduce weekly yoga asanas that are especially useful for beauty and health.

If you take this class after taking BASIC and CHOREO, you can aim for further flexibility by further stretching the muscles warmed by the dance. Also, by slowly cooling down the body in an agitated state after dancing, if you carefully breathe, you will not feel any fatigue. You might no longer need to get expensive massage service!
