Salimpour School Online Bellydance Classes

JL2- 1 thru 8: 4 wks

Learn the 1 thru 8 choreography in 4 weeks with this training plan.

The choreography is challenging with variations and syncopation for both movements and finger cymbals.  It is recommended that students have a solid understanding of SL1 and JL1 and be working on SL2 and JL2 material.  The choreography instruction with notes must be purchased separately in the PPV section.

Music information and choreography notes are provided as part of the choreography instruction which is available separately in the PPV section.  

For certification program members, this training plan includes additional content that will help you prepare and study for JL2 certification.  Substitute classes (or adjust the content) as needed so that you are working at a suitable SL2 and JL2 level for testing.  The JL2 testing preparation training plans include:  Shams El Shamouseh, Ismaouni, El Samer, 1 thru 8, and Jamila L2 Rotation.
