【NADIA Bellydance Lesson ★ 2018 Term 3 】Starting on 10th June!

Dear all,

Hello! ★ This Nadia.

It's June! The second half of 2018!!
Have you realized your goals or dream lists that you set up at the beginning of the year? Let's update it from time to time!

Well, I kept you waiting very much. Let me inform you the details of the new terms which will start on June 10.
New choreography you can learn at term now is 3 songs below.

(Choreography 1)  "Reina de la noche" - Fanveils choreography
This is the latest silk fantails choreography that will be the first time in 4 years since the "Matsuri" created in 2014. Silk fanveils is one of the best props that Nadia uses. I would like to practice exactly from the foundation, how to hold them, how to open them, and how to fascinate your dance with them. It was my encouragement to choreograph the fantails item for a long time since I came across this supernatural cool sound source, "Reina de la noche" (A Queen of the Night), I listen to this song and got inspiration in a moment because this is so hot!! I'd like to add a fascinating choreography to this song where Latin taste was added to Oriental. I would like to dance with an image like a "black rose blooming at night" with some thorns in plenty of sharpness spirits in dance! This is definitely my favorite tastes, I am sure you will love it too! ;)

→ Sunday morning class · Monday morning class (Intermediate level) 
Those who are not experienced bellydance, those who are new to choreography with fanveils, you can learn smoothly by taking the technique classes as well.

(Choreography 2) "Gawaher"  - Oriental choreography (Silk Veil) 
Since my first creation of choreography in 2013 and performance in 2015, I will teach this one and only popular choreography "Gawaher" on Monday evening class! I am so excited because I have received so many request to teach at WS or Private Lessons, but now I share with you at regular class. I rarely repeat the work and teach the same choreography, but it is too wasteful to complete this wonderful song and never teach again? So, I'd like to dance while mixing the original and the new routine as the 2018 version. We also share Nadia's specialty spin (with Silk Veil), the solo dance technique on a big stage, and the arrangements of dancers and duo, and the students will dance on recital, hafra, competition etc on a big stage. As you can have, I would like to share plenty of attractions and tips on the stage as an oriental dancer. Let's dance coolly Oriental, coolly and modernly! Do not miss this opportunity! (If you miss it, you have to wait another 4 years again to learn it!? Haha)

→ Monday evening class (Intermediate level) 
Those who are not experienced bellydance, those who are new to choreography with veil, you can learn smoothly by taking the technique classes as well. 

(Choreography 3) "Luxor Baladna"  - Saidi Choreography (Assaya)
Listening to this sound will revive the memories of South Egypt where I traveled in 2007. From Cairo to the south, a gently flowing Nile river goes upstream with a cruiser and stopped by a town named Luxor on a journey to the Aswan region. The ruins of the ancient city of Thebes of Egypt spread throughout the town. The scent of spice, the hot heat that springs up from the land. Saidi is a word pointing to those things (people or things) came from the southern region of Egypt (Upper - Egypt) including Luxor.

This time's theme song "Luxor Baladna" (Luxor is my home) is symbolizing the lively timbre reminiscent of the bright and rough men in southern Egypt usging Asaya (cane) which has sometimes the mysterious power with the rhythm of Saidii.
Since its many repetitions, I will welcome all level especially for beginners, or even intermediate students who wish to study Saidii more. We will use Asaya, but this time I will not swing round and round, use it like framing, will be a lesson specialized for carving rhythm. Please bring Asaya if you have. We will rent to those who do not. (Dancing with Asaya for reference →  2015 Recital)

→ Wednesday Evening class & Thursday Morning class (Beginners) will be the subject song. 

 "Luxor Baladna" Lyrics :「Luxor Baladna, Thebes our home, wherein Egyptians find their souls, where every temple, an' every dome, echos the ancient prayer calls, do not forget me...」

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.
