【2018 SPRING ★ Bellydance Lesson】Starting on 1st April!

Hello! ★ This is Nadia! :) 
Thanks for waiting! We are starting the new lesson term on this weekend, 1st April Sunday!! 

New choreography you can learn at this term is 3 songs below.

■ "Baladi Sangaran" ■
Want to dance the baladi gracefully? In response to the request from some students that says, Sunday & Monday morning classes choreography will be "Baladi Sangaran", this is the song that I love for a long time and sometimes dancing even at restaurant shows etc. But I recently recognized that the tabla player in this song is Matias Hazrum! (It is a young Argentinian artist who is know as Nebteedy Drum, Hayati & etc etc..) By Matias Hazrum & Mario Kirlis, a luxurious song that can be danced in collaboration with two favorite artists, becoming an upbeat little by little from the middle stage, last will be a super dynamic ending! It's a song that you will be absolutely energetic by dancing. 

→ Sunday & Monday morning class (Intermediate level) 

■  "Bitwanee Beek" ■
"Bitwanee Beek" ("I am happy when I am with you") singing by Warda, a Tarab singer who represents the Arabic music world, left more than 300 songs of masterpieces until she past away in 2012.  Melody and lyrics are beautiful. I like original music though, in lesson, I use a modern version of the sound that Haifa sings. I recently learned from Tunisian Arabian musician, Mr Hassen who lives in Tokyo, how to sing of this song during I stay in Tokyo few weeks ago. I would like to share the lyrics of this song during the class, maybe we can sing together! ;) Why not?  It is a 90 minute class that you can learn simple choreography and accompanying basic techniques. I will prepare simple choreography for beginners. Regarding this class, we will make it an open class so those who are interested in learning this song purely regardless of beginners or experienced people are welcome to participate in drop-in as well. Please do not hesitate to come. 

→ Wednesday evening & Thursday morning class (Beginner level) 

"Biysalouni "("They ask me about you and you are my love"), the original song is also sang by Warda. 「Al eeh ... biyesalouni annak ya nour uyuni al ehh, al ehhh..... 」(Everyone is asking who you are, you are my light (love and it is everything) ...) Start singing from a romantic phrase, shall we put a lot of emotions and dance dramatically? It is a masterpiece covered by various artists such as Nancy Ajram and Dr Samy Farag, but I'd like to choreograph and teach with the sound source that Tony Mouzik sings, which I felt most comfortable to listen to in various versions. Recently, I learned the same song at the Egyptian workshop of Brazilian dancer Kattleen who lives in Japan and got lots of wonderful inspiration. It is NADIA choreography to teach you in the lesson, but I will also incorporate Kattleen's gorgeous essence at choreography!

→ Monday evening class (Intermediate level)

In technique classes, we build the foundation for strengthen the body to dance. We are starting with basic attitude as a dancer, arranging the trunk of the fingertips and neck, shoulder and waist, discovering the axis of the body, and instructing them to maintain a stable posture. By keeping continuing every week surely the muscular strength will go up. Practice to move the pelvis to the correct position, using the muscles around the hip joint and the abdominal muscles (abdominal oblique muscle, abdominal transverse muscles, rectus abdominis muscles) etc. to isolate various body parts. Practice of hip work, especially because it moves inner thigh well, the flow of lymph around the hip joint is improved, the balance of female hormones is adjusted, leading to menstrual imbalances and PMS improvement as well. Belly dance is a gentle movement that does not burden the body, so you can dance with confidence as women of a wide range of age groups. Of course, those who want to refine the foundation for dancing choreography, as well as those who are new to exercise (& after a long time), those who want to move their bodies as pregnant women and as exercises after childbirth. As a rule of thumb you can participate in pregnancy until around 8 months of pregnancy and after delivery for 2 months or later, but please be sure to obtain permission of exercise OK from your doctor in charge. Shoes are unnecessary as we dance barefoot. Do not forget to bring a water bottle as it sweats. 

In choreography classes,  we introduce various tips to dance fascinating dance. Every time a new term starts I am teaching the latest choreography. Since I rarely teach old choreography repeatedly, please do not miss the chance of attending a regular class. (Regarding the old choreography, I teach in private lessons and workshops only if there is a request). I am instructing the work to be completed in 8 to 10 weeks. Share the points of the routine for dancing belly dance choreographies, how to use props (veils, asaya, etc.) and drills, study instruments and rhythms used in songs, points of expression and attraction too. At the end of the lesson, we will complete the lesson with exercise of core strength & stretching all the muscles incorporates yoga methods and relaxing in mind and body. Please bring a yoga mat or a bath towel to the class. Shoes are unnecessary as we dance barefoot. Do not forget to wear a water bottle as it sweats. Regarding choreography classes, we ask students to start taking classes within 2 to 3 weeks from the start of the term. After that, we may refuse admission.
