How much dance experience do I need to take this workshop?
This workshop is appropriate for dancers with all levels of experience in bellydance / raqs sharqi. The pace will be fairly fast in order to learn as much choreography as possible during the workshop. That being said, we still encourage you to join and challenge yourself if you’re a beginner! A recording of the workshop will be emailed to all participants and will be accessible for 30 days. You will be able to review this recording as many times as you like, so it’s a great way to learn at your own pace even after the workshop ends.
