The Next Step & Musicality

This class is for the more advanced dancer who has completed both "Level 1 & Level 1 +" and "Level 2 & Level 2+" either in person or online with Kelley and/or has a good working knowledge of the steps outlined in both courses.
As advanced dancers please ensure you have 'warmed up' prior to class starting.
Adding more steps and combinations to your repertoire we'll break down the Modern Fast steps - (Arabic) 1-2-3, Waterpot, Wet Dog, Double Back with 1/2 turn, Spins and the Dialect steps - Roundhouse, Triple Swivel Step (Triple Egyptian), Alabama Twister, Triangle Step, Swivel Step Sweep Back (Egyptian Sevillana) and Resham-ka Spin
In the Slow vocabulary we'll look at the Modern Complex turns - Wraparound, Sahra and Barrel plus we'll break down the Dialect steps- Medusa 2, Strong Arm and variations, Wraparound Drop, Full Level and Level Drop
We'll even cover things like Arabic Orbit and Passing Moves
This class will also include musicality with music mapping, phrasing, interpreting our music, performance skills and planning as well as advanced concepts like Duelling Duets and dancing in the round - so we'll certainly have plenty to work on.
As an advanced class we can delve in to any topic you wish, revisit steps from previous levels to geek out on picky technique, so just let me know if there is anything you would love to work on
Here's an example of a musicality and performance project we worked on in class
comparing two versions of Ederlezi - one absobloodulylutely beautifully slow - the other .....aaaargh manically fast
- hahaha it was pretty full on and we learned a lot!!!!!
"Even though I am a former member of the FatChanceBellyDance® troupe I take every opportunity to study with Kelley. She is an inspirational teacher with a passion for detail and I love how she breaks down technique. She is also one of the kindest people I know. If you have the opportunity to study with Kelley your dance will be the richer for it."

" I BLOODY love this woman. She’s the best FCBDstyle teacher I’ve had the pleasure to learn from (apart from Carolena) and one of the most warm-hearted, humble and generous souls I had the pleasure to find on my path"

"Kelley Beeston is, without a doubt, one of the best teachers I've had the chance to learn from, and a truly wonderful and loving human being. She is very empathic and attentive to each and everyone, she fully understands how we each learn in different ways and she uses all the resources she can to get the message through to you. She has brilliant tips and visualizations that you will never forget, and that truly help with your understanding and practice of the movements. Her classes are inclusive, fun and relaxed, and always so efficient, that even as a more skilled dancer there is always something to learn or improve! I absolutely recommend her classes, to all dancers and newcomers "
