5 Week Beginner Bellydance Course

In 5 weeks you will learn essential techniques of bellydance that will all come together in a gorgeous choreography. Experience the joy of moving feminine, sensual and powerful.

Do you know this feeling?

  • I have long working days at the office, I hardly have any time to have hobbies in my life.
  • After a day of work my body feels cramped, my shoulders hurt and my hands are stiff.
  • I work in an environment with mainly men and I find it hard to be very feminine around them.
  • I wish to be in touch with my feminity more and to express my softer and sensual side.
  • Sometimes my days at the office seem so grey, I miss colors and sparkles in my life!
  • I have such a busy life, I hardly have time to do sports or dance classes. I am happy when I get home, but I miss moving my body.
  • I miss the interaction with other women in my life, I would love to be part of an international community.
  • I wish to learn more about other cultures, their way of expressing themselves and their music.

I recognize that feeling very well. You probably would not expect that from me as a dancer, but in my business I have to work with the computer to make my websites and to edit my videos for example. That makes me feel just like you: cramped, stiff and isolated.

Many of my students also have intensive jobs. They are very good at what they do and feel passionate about it, but they make a lot of long hours at the office. They experience so much joy and really feel so many physical and emotional advantages by having bellydance in their busy lives.

Let me introduce myself!

Hello BeYOUtiful! My name is Aisa Lafour and I am a passionate and dedicated Bellydance teacher. Winner of the Bellydancer of The World contest in 2008. Owner of the Heartbeat of Bellydance School in Amsterdam and online.

This is what you will learn:

  • It is a 5 week program
  • Every week you will receive an email with a link to access the class in the Bellydance academy website.
  • Every class starts with a warming up and ends with a cooling down
  • Each class has different bellydance techniques, drills and a combination of the choreography.
  • Connection, help and support in the Facebook community.
  • Livelong access to the classes. You can repeat it as often as you you like, livelong, as long as the program runs .

In the first class you will learn about a correct posture and you immediately learn how to strongly move your hips up and down while making a hip slide, we call this hip hits with slide. You will also learn how to tremble your hips in a hip shimmy and learn a beautiful elegant movement of your arms: the snake arms. All those moves come together in the first combination of the Choreography to Nibtedi Mnin al Hikaya.

In the second class you will learn one of bellydance's signature moves: the Hipdrop with Kick/Wahda wa Noz and how to turn around with it. One of the most intensive shimmy's, the xuxu shimmy, is on the menu as well. These moves will be melted together into the second combination. Then, we will dance combination 1 and 2 of the choreography.

 

Class 3 is probably the most sensual one. You will learn the body undulation/camel and how to travel sidewards with it. You will also learn the beautiful sensual horizontal figure 8 of your hips. You will move in different tempo's from slow to quick. Together these movements form combination 3. At the end we will dance combi 1, 2 and 3 and we are over half into the choreography.

In the fourth class we are going to move through the space with a sensual travel step: chassé, with a touch of hips. In this class your upper body will be involved as well by doing the frivolous shoulder shimmy. Back to hips with a powerful hip twist that you learn how to do on the spot and while travelling and a strong sidewards hip accent. You learn combination 4 and then we dance combination 1,2,3 and 4 together. You are getting closer and closer to dancing the full choreography.

 

The final week is week 5. You will learn one of the basic steps of bellydance: the Arabic step and how to dance it to different directions. Again you will work on your xuxu shimmy but this time combined with the lovely snake arms. This is the moment that you will dance all the combinations from 1 - 5 which means that you know the full choreography. We will drill it many times.

Thank you so much for the bellydance training video, Aisa! I love you so much and I'm happy that you teach bellydance online! I watched the videos and step by step danced along. I also think you are an amazing teacher! I look forward for the other people of this amazing course! 🙂

Lisa, Baumgartner

I really enjoyed my online belly dance class with Aisa. I was a bit skeptical about a dance lesson online at the beginning, but I have to say that it exceeded all my expectations. First it was really relieving to take a lesson from the comfort of my own living room, without having to waste time in traffic and returning home late and tired. As long as you have a good internet connection, an online class is as efficient as a "real" class. Second, Aisa is an excellent teacher. She makes you feel comfortable and gives you a lot of encouragement during class.

"Thank you for the video's Aisa!! I love that you do the warming up at the beginning and the cooling down at the end like in a real class! I also love the fact that I can access the video whenever I want to practice and follow your instructions!" Michelle D.

"Thanks so much for this amazing belly dance training video, Aisa! I love how generously you share the basics from the scratch and teach with passion! Looking forward to other parts of the course! :)"

Dear Aisa, I want to give you my compliments and my apreciation for your work. You are creating so much content to learn bellydanceing and many times for free, next to all the classes that you are teaching in Amsterdam. For someone like me this is the perfect solution. I really love bellydanceing but I can't find a fitting bellydance school in my city. Because of my fulltime job which is far away it does not fit in my schedule to go to a dance class at night after work in another city and travel home late. So this online course is a perfect initiative, I just love it!
