The course will have the following steps to it:

  1. Private assessment class for each student with a proper interview and audition to assess each one’s dance style, understanding of music and rhythm as well as what each dancer knows and what she feels that she needs to improve on.
  2. We will first of all help overcome your immediate and initial obstacles in dance one by one ready to advance on the course.
  3. There will be:
    • 12 (twelve) individual classes of rhythm and dance over a period of 9 (nine) months.
      – You will be taught to play a Duff (frame drum) and read basic music for percussion.- You will be learning the art musical interpretation in dance. You will become an expert in the portrayal of the various parts of the music. You will also learn the various styles of the dancers who pioneered this art form as we know it today
    • Plus 6 (six) GROUP CLASSES where we will concentrate on the understanding of musical layers in choreography and how to break down each piece of music. Moreover, the students will be learning basic techniques and choreographies for developing their own styles amalgamating all the above knowledge.
    • The Group Classes will include Drum Solo, Saidi Folklore, Basic Layers, Classical and Baladi that will be with live musicians.
    • The Group Classes will be held over 3 weekends with one month between each weekend. Group Classes are scheduled ahead of time and you will be informed of them when you enrol on the course.
    • Visual studies and discussions of various styles of dance from videos.
    • Homework, where each dancer will be given a private homework to practice and present. Each dancer will be expected to do her homework and record it and upload it to YouTube as an UNLISTED clip for our viewing, assessing, grading and marking of that homework. The response to your homework will be sent by email.
    • Correction regarding the homework will be re-assessed on the following class.


The classes in this course will be scheduled every 3 (three) weeks and between each class you will have some homework to study, practice and present.

In total the course will be 12 (twelve) months or shorter depending on each dancer’s abilities to assimilate and apply the knowledge in the course, and of course the number of hours dedicated to practising the course material.

This will be in addition to the time it will take to prepare for the end of course Graduation Show and presentation.

We also understand that each dancer is a different person with different needs and abilities.
