Do you always need to know what’s next? Not if you know how to improvise!
Embrace the unknown, explore your spontaneous side and dance outside the box! Understanding musicality and equipping yourself with the skills to improvise positively influences and empowers all aspects of your belly dancing. Overcome your inhibitions and set yourself free to dance anywhere, any time – even if the DJ doesn’t have the song you know!
Improvisation to a known or unknown song can be an exciting (or daunting!) challenge. Learn and practise fun tools that enable you to fully enjoy and embrace this method of belly dancing. Musicality is about understanding and being able to interpret music well with your dance. This course explains the core elements of this theory, and uses fun exercises to display and improve the musicality of your movements.
This isn’t a Belly Dance Showcase performance course – but when you know how to improvise, your opportunities to dance are unlimited! Dance at home, dance at a party – dance whenever and wherever the urge takes you!
