Keti's NEW Ultimate A-Z Bellydance Performer & Teacher Training Certification Course is a One Year study course, starting Feb 1st 2021.
There is also a mid year intake open for just two weeks, from 15th June to 1st July.
40 dynamic modules are delivered from Feb-Nov, with one module to complete each week. Students must undertake quarterly exams, and receive mentoring and guidance by Keti and fellow course members.
Created for both performance and teaching, Keti's unique and comprehensive methodology - enriched over 20 years - offers a culturally informed learning experience with a deep Somatic approach. Live Egyptian music & rhythms feature with percussionist Sam Nascimento on darbuka as every routine is first demonstrated rhythmically, then to music in several modes, and finally as part of a choreography.
The NEW A-Z features freshly filmed videos and a brand new format with over 40 Arabic rhythms, 120 Individual Moves, and 64 powerful routines: 26 x A-Z Original routines 26 x A-Z Advanced routines and 12 x AstroBelly routines. Each routine shown in Folk, Classical & Fusion mode (that's over 250 ways of dancing these routines!). This in-depth course also explores performance professionalism with 20 choreos: 12 classical A-Z dances to live Egyptian music, plus 8 brand new modern pieces. Discover bellydance for fitness and ready-made lesson plans to make teaching easier, with special sections on teaching seniors, teaching pregnant students or those with physical limitations.
The addition of Farida Fahmy's teaching tips, Mahmoud Reda drills, new fitness classes and even deeper somatic (body/mind) exploration makes this the ultimate training for dancers who wish to gain performance credibility and confidence, and for teachers who wish to develop powerful, clear teaching strategies with a focus on wellbeing.
