Level 2 Belly Dance

This class is designed for students who have prior exposure to Middle Eastern dance (Level 1 or Advanced Beginner classes) There may be a review of some Level 1 & 1+ technique with attention to refining technique, but then we will move quickly into new material, focusing on on technique mastery, new techniques, variations and combinations. The level 2 curriculum at Aalim School is an expanded curriculum of new techniques and combinations with more attention to dance combinations and transitions, musicality, and developing skills with finger cymbals. Some specialty techniques/props and basic layering techniques are also introduced at this level.


Please note--Class level curriculum and expectations may not be the same for all schools and dance programs. If you are not sure which level is appropriate for you, please contact us at 612-703-7002 or email mirah@albahira.org.
