Salimpour School Online Bellydance Classes

L3- Shamadan: 8 wks

Learn the Shamadan in 5 weeks.  Choreography only available to Bal Anat members with SL3 certification.

The training plan focuses on SL3 and the Jamila vocabulary of steps.  

The choreography is available separately in the PPV section for students who are members of Bal Anat holding SL3 certification or higher.

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!
