I’ve been looking over the material in the Bundle, and I have to say, there is some good stuff in there.
Nadira Jamal’s Improvisation Toolkit. Keti Sharif’s beautiful Traditional Arts of Egypt video seminar. Sahra Saeeda’s complete Journey Through Egypt (JtE) Fundamentals–first time ever as an online class. A month of the Salimpour School. Makeup info, posing for pictures, making beaded appliques–There’s just a ton of stuff. It’s really quite impressive.
I’m also pleased by the class I’m making for the Bundle–Embodiment: Musicality for Belly Dance. It’s one of the best classes I’ve designed yet.
Embodiment: Musicality for Belly Dance.
To embody something is to “be an expression of or give a tangible or visible form to (an idea, quality, or feeling).” In the case of belly dance, we seek to embody the music–visually expressing our feeling from the music.
The problem comes when we don’t feel the music. How are we supposed to express something we can’t even understand? We need a way to enter the structure of the music so we can relax and enjoy our own dance, so we can share our joy with others.
But how do we do that?
Ah! That’s where this course comes in.
In this six-week course, you will learn musical structure; explore rhythm, melody, and phrasing; and practice improvisational templates so you can bask in joyous expression.
Week 1: Demystifying the Music
Week 2. Understanding Rhythmic Structure
Week 3. Dancing on the Melody
Week 4. Interpretation and Texture
Week 5. Using Combo Templates
Week 6. How to Float and Land
Each week includes a conceptual breakdown, musical assignment, dance étude, video example, and song suggestions.
This course helps students feel the music.
It helps teachers teach musicality. .
Best of all? It’s FREE to buyers the Bellydance Bundle 2018.
Yep. A $95 course, FREE
That’s a big win-win for everyone.
And that’s just one offering.
The value of this package is through the roof.
Embodiment is $95. The Salimpour month is $80. JtE is $100. Mahin’s zil course is $125. And that’s only four things. There are 27 contributors, with a combined value over $1,300. That’s a lot of stuff. And a wide variety of stuff! Take a look–you’ll be amazed: aliathabit.com/bundle
Plus you get a nifty little guide to help you decide what to work on first, and a FaceBook group so you can find friends to work on things with you. It’s a really well-designed package.
There’s only ONE problem…
Yeah, only ONE day left. The Bundle closes at midnight on Wednesday October 10 (technically it closes 8AM Thursday Eastern time to cover all the timezones)
So now’s the time.
Take a look, see what you think. I think it’s pretty impressive. And so have a lot of us!
