【NEW Bellydance Lesson】★ Starting in October!

Dear all,

Thanks for waiting!! New Bellydance Lesson starts in October!

Those who are interested in bellydancing, even if feeling your body is not flexible or being totally inexperienced to this dance form, just come to experience the trial lesson first! ;)

Trial or Drop-in class is now OPEN for everyone from October.

Since choreography will be taught to be completed in 8 weeks, those who wish to learn choreography should come as weekly if possible. It will be the final term of 2018, so do not miss it! 

Also, please feel free to join the technique class which you can come any time. We will use all your fine muscles, muscles around the pelvis, legs to toes, arms and fingers, back, stomach, actually "everything" of your body,  to make your body that can dance and being strong. Appropriate and good sweat is applied. 

New choreography you can learn at this term is 3 songs below. Everything is a wonderful piece of music that will make me feel excited, every time I have a nice choreography without compromise. Please look forward to it! ! !

(Choreography 1) "Enta el Hob"  - Veil Choreography

I have been fascinated by the beauty of the song called "Enta El Hob" (You are my love), one of Um Kalthum's masterpieces, but for many years now, the time has come to dance. This song is already confirmed that Nadia will perform with live band at Tokyo Show in the end of this year, and in fact it is also a song that I was preparing and learning under ground in long time. I would like to deepen this beautiful song even more, with my beautiful choreography, and share it with my students. Please attend those who wish to study this beautiful number with me.

→ Sunday morning class · Monday morning class (Intermediate level) will be the subject to this song. People who do not have bellydancing experience much, please attend both technique class and choreography class. So that you can learn the choreography smoothly. 

(Choreography 2)"Bahiya- Arab Pop

"Bahiya" is the name for female. "The beauty appeared when the hijab (scarf) is unveiled, people are jealous when they look at you. Bahiya and Bahiya's eye, all the story is eyes of Bahiya.."  the lyrics singing our the song.
 In accordance with the voice and sound of Nadia's favorite Tony Mouzaik, I will teach you a nice choreography. It is one of the real joey of bellydancing to dance songs richly expressing emotions in to the 'tarab'. 

→ Monday evening class (intermediate level) will be the subject to this song. People who do not have bellydancing experience much, please attend both technique class and choreography class. So that you can learn the choreography smoothly. 

(Choreography 3)
"Lama Baada Yatathana"  - Veil Choreography

"Lama Baada Yatathana" (When she starts to sway), this song was composed in around the 8th century. I will dance to the rhythm called Samaay but since we have a lot of repetitions, I will teach it with simple choreography that makes it easy for beginners' students to dance. Why don't we dance together while imagining what kind of beauty that "SHE" appeared in the lyrics to captivate the people in this song, how do we "dance" like her? Let's try!! ;)

From the lyrics Lama Baada Yatathana : "When she starts to sway ( "sway" is meaning of walking tightly in this lyrics) her beauty captivated us. My beloved is mesmerizing, and although I would sacrifice my soul for her, is she willing to love me back? She imprisoned me in a garden beyond mountains by the way she looks at me, She seemed like a proud tree branch that leans towards its roots after hearing love songs, and achieving richness. I am dazzled by my promises and my confusions, I have no one to ask for mercy, but you, you .. the queen of love." 

→ Wednesday evening class・Thursday morning class (beginner level) will be the subject to this song.

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.
