Daily Oriental Dance Classes
The Oriental Dance classes in ODA comprises three programmes:
Modern Belly Dance employs more lively, energetic movements such as skip steps and shuffle. Much is executed on the balls of the feet as opposed to the flat-footed classical technique. Movements are smaller and tighter to the body. Our Modern Belly Dance programme concentrates on the artistic purpose of turns with more classic techniques such as Soutenu or Chaîne turns whereas other programmes use basic spins more often.
Our Modern Belly Dance Programme offers pre-college level certificates for all levels of belly dance. Students may then move on to our teaching programme. The certificate in Oriental Dance Teaching Studies is a part-time two-year course with six modules over six terms.
Oriental Theatre Dance focuses on the development of rhythm and music styles of belly dance specialities as well as the theatrical side of oriental dance including costuming such as Gypsy and Khalijee styles.
Our intensive classes enable our students easily to develop their skills and artistic capacity and to reach the highest technical standards. Please click to check the schedule for daily classes.
