L3+ Nebtidi Mnein El Hikeiya: 8 wks

Learn Nebtidi Mnein El Hikeiya in 8 weeks with a solid SL3 training plan.  Also includes Abigail Keyes' Anatomy and Somatics 5-class series. 

Music is available on Suhaila's Arabian Musicals Vol. 3 album.   This is a requirement for SL4 certification, and SL2 certification is required for access.  Choreography instruction and notes available separately in the PPV section.


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!
