Level 1 & Level 1+

Classic Steps plus a couple that aren't!

Saturdays 10.30 - 11.30 ongoing for 2020/21

This class is ideal for the absolute beginner and for those more advanced dancers wishing to work on their technique.

Kelley will teach you how to dance step by step, no previous experience required

Each class will start with a warmup dance, stretches and Gratitude Meditation

You will learn the root step in each of the 4 families of Fast Steps in the FatChanceBellyDance® vocabulary - Arabic, Shimmy, Egyptian and Hip/Pivot Bump then moving on we'll add Single Bump, Double Bump, Reach & Sit plus Chico 4 Corners and Box Step

In the Slow vocabulary of movements we'll break down the Taxeem, Floreo, Arm Undulations, Bodywave followed by Torso Rotation, Circle Step, Reverse Turn, Propellor Turn, Corkscrew Turn

We’ll introduce posture, zils (finger cymbals) and the core concepts of how to lead and follow so you can dance with others in formations anywhere in the World (once we're let out again) with no need to learn choreography. If you don't already have zils then you can buy them online - check out my Tribalog on Choosing Zils

Level 2 & Level 2+

Classic & Modern plus a few Approved Dialect Steps

Tuesdays 18.45 - 19.45 ongoing for 2020/21

This class is for those who have completed "Level 1 & Level 1 +" online with Kelley and/or have a good working knowledge of the steps outlined above. Ideal for the Improver or Intermediate dancer and again for those more advanced dancers wishing to work on their technique. Kelley includes her innovative way to actually dance in duets and chorus

Each class will start with a warmup dance, stretches and Gratitude Meditation

Steps we'll be breaking down in the Fast Classic vocabulary are- Turkish Shimmy and with 1/4 and 1/2 turns, Arabic Hip Twist and 1/2 turn, Choo Choo Arc Arms, Up 2 Down 3 with Military zil pattern, Arabic Shimmy. Moving on we'll add some of the Modern Steps - Turkish Shimmy with arms and turn, Single Bump 1/2 turn, Arabic Shimmy with arms and turn, Shoulder Shimmy Hip Drop Combo, Ghawazee Shimmy Combo, Egyptian Full Turn, Sunanda, Resham-ka, ASWAAT fade and circle, TSWAAT in circle, AHT Flourish and a few of the approved dialect steps - AHT Flourish & Fade and in circle, Push Forward & Back, and Arabic Double Turn

In the Slow Classic vocabulary of movements we'll break down the Camelwalk, Ribcage Rotation, Reverse Taxeem, Head Slides, Torso Twist (turning), Circle Step turning and move on to the Modern - Walking Taxeem, Walking Bodywave and the dialect steps - Loco Camel, Pulse Turn, The Rainbow, and Medusa 1

This'll be fun online and may cause a few laughs - the concept of Chorus, Fade and Diagonal Formation but where there's a will there's a way!!

Level 3 to 4

Modern & Approved Dialect Steps plus musicality and performance skills

Saturdays 11.45 - 13.00 ongoing for 2020/21

This class is for the more advanced dancer who has completed both "Level 1 & Level 1 +" and "Level 2 & Level 2+" online with Kelley and/or has a good working knowledge of the steps outlined in both courses above. As advanced dancers please ensure you have 'warmed up' prior to the 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 Egyptian, Alabama Twister, Triangle Step, 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 - Indian Medusa, Strong Arm and variations, Wraparound Drop, Full Level and Level Drop

So how on earth does one teach Arabic Orbit and Passing Moves online when we're in self-isolation? Well I have a few ideas up my sleeve and will also introduce my innovative way of actually dancing in trios and quartets

This class will also include an introduction to musicality with music mapping, phrasing and interpreting our music - so we'll certainly have plenty to work on.
