★ "SAKURA SAKURA" - Live life in full bloom.

* Followed by English translation


こんにちは!★ナディアです。

COVID-19の影響で、日々自粛を強いられ、また暗いニュースが続く昨今ですが、ストレスを溜めない工夫と、強い信念を保ち、必ず終息する日がくることを信じて、これから長期戦となるであろうCOVID-19と闘っていきましょう。どうぞ、皆様、細心の注意を払い無事に過ごしてください。心からお願い申し上げます。

さて。延期となった4月4日の"A Night of Orient Vol.5" !オープニングで踊るはずだった”SAKURA SAKURA”を、この度、映像化致しました。世界の平和と明るい春の訪れを祈って、7人で心を込めて踊りました。この美しい会場はいつもナディアがレッスンを開催しているRaffles Town Clubのロビーです。4階まで吹き抜けになっており、踊っている間、皆の祈りとポジティブなエネルギーが天井を突き抜けて、世界へ発信されていくかのような、とても神聖で、神々しい時間が流れました。

現在、COVID-19の影響で、こちらでの定期レッスンは4月末まで全て休講、建物も閉館しているため、人がいなくて寂しい気持ちになりましたが、私たちのホームであるRaffles Town Clubより、祈りを捧げながら踊ることができ、胸の中に痞えていたモヤモヤが、この日を境に、"COVIDと闘うんだ"という強い信念に変わったように思えます。一緒に踊ってくれたメンバーも同じように感じているのではないでしょうか?

皆様にも動画をシェアさせて頂きます。今年はお花見ができなくて残念という方も、皆様の心の内側にある桜の花のような強くて美しい力を感じ取り、ご自身の力を信じて、この苦境を乗り越えて行くエネルギーに変えて頂けたらと思います

動画に関するご感想や、シェア、いいねボタン、コメントなどは大変励みになります。いつも温かいサポートを頂き、感謝しています。ありがとうございます。

Dear all, 

Hello, this is Nadia.

Due to the influence of COVID-19, it has been induced a mood of self-control among the people around the world, and some dark news are broadcasting everyday. But we must be aware of that it might be a long battle from now on, lets try to find the idea to reduce your stress, try to maintain the strong beliefs that it will be definitely end and we will get our normal life back, be strong and be positive to fight with COVID-19 all together. Please, pay much attention and stay safe. Thank you.

So, now I would like to introduce you one of my best creation piece,  "SAKURA SAKURA", which was supposed to be dancing at the opening of "A Night of Orient Vol.5" on April 4, was postponed. Seven of us danced heartily in hope of world peace and the coming of bright spring. This beautiful venue is the lobby of Raffles Town Club where I teach my lessons regularly. It's a stairwell to the fourth floor, and while dancing, it's a very sacred and godly time as if everyone's prayers and positive energy had penetrated the ceiling and passed on to the world.

Currently, due to the influence of COVID-19, all regular lessons here are closed until the end of April, and the building is closed, so I felt such lonely without people there, but our home, at Raffles Town Club, we could dance while praying, and it seemed that the cobweb that had been burning in my heart changed from this day to a strong conviction that I should fight against COVID. Do the members who danced together feel the same way?

Let me share the video with you all. Even those who wasn't able to see SAKURA (cherry blossoms) this year, feel the strong and beautiful power like the cherry blossoms inside your heart, believe in your own power, and convert it into energy that overcomes this predicament. 

Your feedback about the video, your share, like buttons, and comments will be very encouraging, those meant a lot and special to me. Thank you always for your warm support.

Love,

【2020 March Start!】★ NEW LESSON by NADIA



Thank you for waiting!

My new Choreography class and Basic class starts on this weekend!








"El Fan" choreography I taught in the precious term was very popular. Some voices say that it is regrettable to end. I want to warm this song that I love a little more, and this time we are going to dance with the instrumental sound source (a nice version of Mario Kirlis) And choreography with glittering wings called Isis Wing. Please be assured that I will teach you from the beginning even those who have never used a wing. I want to dance this song to the finale of Post- "A Night of Orient Vol.5" which is scheduled in this fall. You can learn this choreography on Sunday and Monday morning class.


Well, another song. This is our first sword dance choreography! Dance with sword on your head and hips. For the past few years, Nadia Class has been focusing on core training, so it has been decided that it is the best time to challenge it now that the skills of students attending basic classes have improved. The sound source used for the choreography is the song "Rakkas" by Sezen Aksu, the queen of Turkish pop. Nadia will make this a super cool choreography and teach you as a new work in 2020. There is floor work! Let's increase flexibility and core strength! Please look forward to it. This is for Wednesday night and Thursday morning classes.

If you don't have Isis Wing or Sword, let's order them together. If you could tell me by this weekend, I will order them all together. I think the price is about $ 100 (usd). Please tell me who wants to order.

Ok now, every choreography class has a BASIC technique class on the same day.

This is a 60-minute class, and every week I lecture and train on the muscles which is necessary for belly dance.

This class is also highly recommended for the women for all ages and even who do not aim to perform belly dance. It focuses on the pelvis, which is the most important part of a woman's body, and strengthens the surrounding muscles that shape it, improving the line from waist to hips, standing posture, and even O-legs. It also has the effect of making your legs slimmer and thinner by increasing the strength of your inner thighs. In addition, since it is used without waste from the tip of the head, around the arm, around the waist, and the tip of the foot, there is definitely a shape-up effect. It is the best training to create a "belly dancer body" that is too much muscular nor lonely training, but it is building a strong core in your body and a feminine touch left at the same time.

The new lesson for Spring 2020 starts this Sunday onwards!

New lessons and trial lessons are also welcome. If you want to try something new this spring, Belly dance is a wonderful dance art that strengthens the inner and outer body as well as the mental side. You can also meet lifetime friends through dancing, perform in wonderful places unique to Singapore, and have lots of fun experiences. If you are interested, please come to the trial lesson! We look forward to seeing you there at Raffles Town Club studio!



(Choreography 1) "El Fan

(Choreography 2) "Sword Dance

BASICS - Core & Strength

opular demand, there are class on 4 days per week.

+ + + + + + + + + + + +

In technique classeswe 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 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.

【2020年3月スタート】★ 新レッスンのお知らせ!



(English version from here!)


こんにちは!★ ナディアです。
お待ちかね、春の新レッスンのお知らせです。


今回も振付二本立て!& BASICSの基礎トレもたっぷりやっていきますよ。

前タームで大好評を博した"El Fan"!終わってしまうのが惜しい・・という声もちらほら。私も大好きなこの曲を、もう少し温めたいなと思い、今度はインストルメンタルの音源で(Mario Kirlisの素敵なバージョン!)を使い、イシスウィングというキラキラの羽を使った振付で踊っていこうと思います。ウィングを使ったことがない方にも一から教えますのでご安心くださいね。この曲は秋に予定している、Post- "A Night of Orient Vol.5"のフィナーレで踊りたいと考えています。また、コロナが落ち着いた頃に、この曲でショーにもどんどん出たいと思っているので、参加される方は、是非、ナディアとの共演を意識して、レッスンについて来ていただけたらと思います。こちらは、日曜・月曜の朝クラスが対象となります。

さて、もう一曲。今回初となる、スオードダンスを!スオード(剣)は、昔よくショーで踊っていたのですが、ナディア自身も久しぶりに使う小道具。剣を、頭や腰に乗っけて踊ります。ここ数年、ナディアクラスは体幹トレーニングに力を入れてきたので、基礎クラスにご出席頂いている生徒さんのスキルが上がってきた今、チャレンジするベストタイミングだと判断しました。振付に使う音源は、トルコポップスの女王と呼ばれるセゼン・アクス(Sezen Aksu)の"Rakkas"という曲。この曲は、ナディアが駆け出しの頃に同期の友人たちと何度もパフォーマンスで踊った思い出の曲でもあり、初心にかえる思いがあります。これを超絶かっこいい振付にして、2020年の新作として皆さんに教えます。フロアワークあり!柔軟性も体幹力も上げていきましょう!どうぞお楽しみに。こちらは、水曜夜、木曜朝クラスが対象となります。

イシスウィングや、スオードをお持ちでない方は、一緒にオーダーしましょう。今週中に教えてもらえたら、まとめてオーダーします。お値段は、$100(usd)程度かと思います。希望者は教えてください。


さて、どの振付クラスにも必ず基礎クラスが前半についています。

週に3回、Raffes Town Clubにて開催しているナディアが教える60分間の【BASICS - core & strength】の基礎クラスは、ベリーダンスを踊る際に必要な筋肉について細かくレクチャーし、トレーニングをしています。女性の体にとって一番大切な部位である骨盤にフォーカスし、そのベースを作る周辺の筋肉を強化しますので、ウエスト周りからお尻にかけてのライン、立ち姿勢、O脚が改善します。産後の体型戻しにも最適です。60分間のレッスンの中で、頭から首すじ、肩のライン、肩甲骨周りを中心とした背中から腕、指先、脇腹、おへそ周り、太もも、足の先まで、全てを無駄なく使い、お稽古しますので、シェイプアップ効果が高いです。特にナディアが大好きな筋肉→"内腿"の筋力アップで足がスラッと細くなる効果もあります。ヨガを長年やっているナディアとしては、ヨガほど孤独な修行ではなく笑、また、肩幅広めの筋肉ムキムキ系でもなく、内側に強い芯を作り、外は女性らしさが残る "ベリーダンサー体型" を作る最高のトレーニングです。ナディアメソッドの内容も年々進化していますよ。


2020年春の新レッスンは、今週日曜よりスタートです!

新規レッスン生、トライアルレッスン生も大歓迎致します。この春、何か新しいことにチャレンジしたいという方!ベリーダンスは体の内側も外側も、精神面も強くしてくれる素晴らしいダンスアートです。また踊りを通して生涯の友達に出会えたり、シンガポールならではの素敵な場所でパフォーマンスをしたり、楽しい経験がたくさんできるのもこのダンスならでは。どうぞ、少しでもご興味がある方は体験レッスンにお越しくださいね!お待ちしています。

基礎クラスでは、踊れる体を作る為の基礎を築きます。ダンサーとしての基本姿勢、指先や首筋、肩、胴回りの体幹を整え、体の軸を発見し、安定した姿勢を保てるように指導することから始めています。毎週続けることで確実に筋力はアップしていきます。骨盤を正しい位置に戻し、股関節周りの筋肉や腹筋(腹斜筋・腹横筋・腹直筋)などを使い、体の様々なパーツをアイソレートして動かす練習をします。ヒップワークの練習は、特に内腿をよく動かしますので、股関節周りのリンパの流れが良くなり、女性ホルモンのバランスが整えられ、生理不順やPMSなどの改善などにもつながります。ベリーダンスは体に負担のかからない優しい動きばかりですので、幅広い年齢層の女性達に安心して踊っていただけます。現在在籍されている生徒さんは、10代〜60代まで年齢層が幅広いです。振付を踊る為の基礎を磨きたい方はもちろん、運動が初めての方&久しぶりの方、妊婦の方の産前や産後のエクササイズとして体を動かしたい方、更年期症状を和らげることを目的にされた方にもご参加頂けます。妊娠中の方は、目安として産前は妊娠8ヶ月頃まで、産後は2ヶ月目以降を目安にご参加頂けますが、必ず担当の専門医より運動OKの許可を得てください。裸足で踊りますので靴は不要です。汗をかきますのでウォーターボトルもお忘れなく!

振付クラスでは、魅せるダンスを踊る為の様々なティップスを紹介しています。毎回新しいタームごとにNADIAの最新振付を教えています。古い振付を繰り返し教えることはありませんので、受講のチャンスを是非見逃さないでくださいね。(過去に創作した振付はリクエストに応じてプライベートレッスンやワークショップで教えることはありますがプライベートレッスンは1振付につき5時間以上の受講、WSは10名以上参加者がいる場合のみ開催可能 → 希望者はご相談ください)。作品は8〜10週で完成するように指導しています。ベリーダンスの振付を踊る為のルーティンの説明、小道具(ベール・アサヤ・ファンベールなど)の使い方とドリル、そして課題曲で使われる楽器やリズムの勉強、表現方法や魅せ方のポイントをシェアしていきます。レッスン最後にはヨガのメソッドを取り入れた体幹トレーニング&ストレッチを行い心身ともにリラックスした状態でレッスンを終えます(体がとても軽くなります)。ヨガマットまたはバスタオルをご持参ください。裸足で踊りますので靴は不要です。汗をかきますのでウォーターボトルもお忘れなく!振付クラスに関しては、ターム開始から2〜3週以内に受講開始をお願いしています。それ以降はご入会をお断りする場合があります。また、おやすみされた場合のメイクアップクラスは特にありませんので、個人レッスンで対応致します。複数の欠席者がいる場合はまとめて補修クラス開催も検討可能ですので、ご相談ください。

【Mrs Singapore Global Univers 2020】★ 今年の優勝者は日本人のEMIさん!


【Mrs Singapore Global Universe 2020】★ 今年の優勝者はなんと日本人!Emi Cheongさん。


2ヶ月ほど前に突然電話がかかってきたんですよ。
「"Sakura Sakura"をコンテスト決勝のパフォーマンス部門で踊りたい」と。

ベリーダンスのご経験ゼロからのスタートでしたので、たった2ヶ月で1曲を仕上げるために、あらゆるアプローチをしました。毎週火曜朝のマンツーマンお稽古2時間に加え、毎週月木の基礎クラスを週に2回。私が教える基礎クラスは、身体の軸を作っていくクラスなので、ダンサー以前に、「女性として魅力的に見える」立ち姿勢を教えています。肩の位置や、首筋、顎ライン、背骨と骨盤の位置、重心の置き方など。立ち姿勢が整わずに、美しく歩けるはずはなく、当然、優美に舞えるはずもないのです。ポージングがいかに大事かを毎週生徒さんには体感して頂いて、筋肉痛になって頂いていますw。

同コンテストのファイナリストは当然、ビジュアル的に超絶美女しかいないわけですが、その美女感で更に魅せられる輝きを放てるのか、それとも半減して見せてしまうのかは、実は、シンプルに立ち姿勢がキーになっていたりもします。

また、話し方に知性や教養が感じられるかも最重要ポイントですよね。"貴女が考える真の美とは?"の質問に対して、表面的な答えしか言えないのか?それとも、もっと深く、愛にあふれた回答ができるのか?その辺は審査員が公平にジャッジし、エミさんに王冠を下さったので、彼女のスピーチトレーナーのMayu Boelensさんと、顔見合わせてほっとしていたんですよね。マユさんは私が企画するイベントでも完璧なバイリンガルMCをしてくださっているプロ司会者で、あのTSUBAKI代表 & 創設者。"エミ優勝プロジェクト"に一緒に関われて嬉しい。



"Sakura Sakura"には私自身も特別な想いがあるので、作品をこのような素晴らしい舞台で発表してくださって大変光栄です。総合プロデュースをお任せくださったので、振付提供、ダンス指導に加えて、ナディアの愛弟子duo、#ユミマチ (Yuumi & Machiko)にはバックダンサーを務めてもらい、舞台スクリーンの映像はナディアによるデザインで、春らしく桜が舞う映像を重ねました。

エミさんの頑張りを応援しようと集まってくれた月木クラスのベリーダンスメイツ、Team NADIA ▶︎ "エミ応援隊"の皆の声援も届いていたはず。

女性に生まれたからには、誰もがきっと同じ願望があるはず。何歳になっても、何度でも、綺麗と言われたいし、輝きを放ち続けたい。その"綺麗さ"や、"輝き"には様々な定義があると思いますが、私は必ずしも若さや、容姿的要素だけで判断されるものではない、むしろ彼女たちの生き方や、人生感が反映するものだと考えます。女性は歳を重ねるにつれて、良質なワインのように甘くて深い味わいが増すということを、皆で追求して、証明していきたいですね。

エミさん、本当におめでとう!そしてこれから待っている世界大会で更にパワーアップしたお姿で、勇姿を見せて頂けることを期待しています。

【2020 January Start】★ New Bellydance Class by NADIA



Dear all,

Happy New Year! 

After a long break in Japan, I finally (!) returned to Singapore. 

2020 is the Tokyo Olympic year, as well as the 10th anniversary of the founding of NADIA Bellydance Entertainment & School Singapore. It is kind of important milestone year for me, so I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has been with me all the time, in good time and bad time, sharing lots of laughter and tears with me, and even now for aiming the same dream for the next decade with me. I would like express my feeling through the anniversary events which I organize this year, as well as through the dance performance, or even inside of the choreography which I share. Let's see what's happening in this year 2020, and have fun with me! :) 


Now, we are starting. The first lesson of 2020 will begin in this week.  This time, I would like to select my special new choreography to two best songs, and study with you all.

For Sunday & Monday morning class, "Tahtil Shibbak"(Hoda Al Sonbaty version). In the class on Wednesday evening & Thursday morning,  "El Fan" .

Is "Tahtil Shibbak" the song that I performed the most in 2019 I believe!? 


The dance styles are different because I do all improvised, but there is one part that is common, I carefully warmed and evolved to dance this song. I would like to incorporate that into my choreography and share it with everyone. Why don't we wear baladi dress in the spring time and perform together? We look forward to your participation.

By the way, the second song "El Fan" is a title meaning "art". One of AbdelWahab's masterpieces, it's actually Nadia's favorite song which she's been dancing at Shiraz and other shows for about 10 years. The melody line was incredibly grand, but what was translated to be sung to praise the arts and artists (musicians, dancers, painters, etc.). In any era, a person who is called an artist is a person who keeps shining light, and a person who continues to overcome many sufferings in a place that is invisible to people.

In the quote of abstract painter Mark Rothko,

"Artists are not talented people; they are those who understand that they can never make perfection and continue to strive for perfection."

he said.

As I continue belly dancing, no matter how much praise I get from audience after the show, I have never thought that I could perform perfectly on my own for the past 10 years. That is why I don't stop, might have to be continuing to express in search of new dances one after another, just as if they were blank and started drawing new pictures on canvas. It is a routine that will last a lifetime for me, I believe. However, the process is even such a joy and grateful. I do hope you will feel in somehow the same way with me, and let's praise the life as we embark on the path we decided to go on, and express how much beautiful art we have, shall we express them is in this song? :)


Ok now, every choreography class has a BASIC technique class on the same day. 

This is a 60-minute class, and every week I lecture and train on the muscles which is necessary for belly dance. 

This class is also highly recommended for the women for all ages and even who do not aim to perform belly dance. It focuses on the pelvis, which is the most important part of a woman's body, and strengthens the surrounding muscles that shape it, improving the line from waist to hips, standing posture, and even O-legs. It also has the effect of making your legs slimmer and thinner by increasing the strength of your inner thighs. In addition, since it is used without waste from the tip of the head, around the arm, around the waist, and the tip of the foot, there is definitely a shape-up effect. It is the best training to create a "belly dancer body" that is too much muscular nor lonely training, but it is building a strong core in your body and a feminine touch left at the same time.

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 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.
