Salimpour School Online Bellydance Classes

L3+ Performance Prep Resource List

We compiled the resources and classes for you to learn (and review) before attending a Performance Preparation workshop and for your performance work.   

THIS IS NOT A TRAINING PLAN.  The content is grouped roughly by category and provided in this list format to help you organize.  Allow yourself several months to cover this material; you will want to continue to review the resources as you progress, each time learning and developing more. 

Note that this is not a replacement for reading the requirements on the main website.  You are responsible for reviewing the website for the most up-to-date preparation materials.  Pre-workshop assignments for the workshop are listed on the website and not included in the list below.

Note that much of this material can be found in other training plans.  A large selection of these resources are included as part of the training plans for the four Suhaila Solos (Improv-Prep) choreographies.
