This five week course is a delight for experienced belly dancers who wish to have the opportunity to train with Melanie Norman each week and gain essential dance knowledge and practise in class with vital feedback. These are the only public classes that Melanie Norman holds currently in London outside the training of her dance company, and they are a place of exceptional teaching and insightful understanding of what it takes to develop as a dancer, some principal attributes being a great deal of application and patience. They are ideal for the informed dancer who understands the long term nature of development in dance. There will be elements from the world of classical ballet that will be incorporated to help with expression, posture, poise, grace, balance and strength. Class will be focussed with a fair amount of ground covered each week but in a measured and accessible manner with time for interaction, clear explanations and very importantly some fun! Home practise is an absolute for anyone wanting to maximise this experience and grow. The choreographed material will be mostly classical oriental with some folkloric referencing, with styling that is typically Egyptian.
This class is a place where dancers may train on a long term basis and progress in the future to being part of The Arab Quarter Dance Company. There is also the possibility to train further in order to dance with The Arab Quarter Band at The Arab Quarterly, our prestigious long running live Arabic music and dance stage show held in London.
