Salimpour School Online Bellydance Classes

L2- L2FCDS: 8 wks

Learn Suhaila's L2 Finger Cymbal Drum Solo in Eight Weeks. This choreography is a requirement for testing for Suhaila Level 2 certification and above.

The classes have been chosen to accompany the choreography training, while giving a well rounded SL2 education. Cymbals patterns are listed according to the choreography as presented each week, and students are encouraged to train both right hand and left hand dominant. The choreography instruction and notes are available separately in the PPV section. 

Music and Notes: The music is from Suhaila's Arabian Musicals Volume 3, Track 7 (the drum solo that is 3:45 minutes). A link to purchase the download is available with the PPV choreography subscription.

For certification program members, this training plan includes additional content that will help you prepare and study for SL2 certification.  Substitute classes (or adjust the content) as needed so that you are working at a suitable SL2 and JL2 level for testing.  The SL2 testing preparation training plans include:  Princess of Cairo, Syncopations, Chic Chic Choc, Solid Ground SL2, Suhaila Format Challenge, and L2FCDS.

Note:  The training plan is 8 weeks, but the choreography subscription is available in 1 month increments.  The training plans were designed as a means to keep students training every week with a variety of classes following a traditional 8 week rotation of material.  You can do this training plan without learning the choreography, or you can learn the choreography without the full training plan.  You can adapt the training plans as needed.  Be creative.  Some approaches might be:

  • Purchase the choreography PPV for a second month so that you have the video available throughout the full training plan.
  • Purchase the choreography PPV for only one month, but double up the choreography assignments so they can be covered in one month.  
  • Learn the choreography all at once and then use the sections assigned per week as a guide for review.

Of course, the video has a lot of value.  Written choreography notes only tell a certain percentage of the story.  After you learn the sequencing, moves, and steps in a choregraphy, we recommend going back and relearning from the video again.  The second time, you notice even more!
