Salimpour School Online Bellydance Classes

L2- Cane Dance: 6 wks

Learn Suhaila's famous Cane Dance used in both her iconic Percussion Show and the legendary Bal Anat. 

The training plan features solid SL2 material with an SL3 challange plus additional cane stylization and technique with a dash of debke. For certification program members, this additional content is useful for your improvisation catalog performance work.

Video instruction and choreography notes available separately as a PPV.


Note:  The training plan is 6 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!
