Our tips for a good Bellydancing comeback !

Of course it's almost the end of summer, the sun, beach and vacation but Yeahhhhh! Bellydance classes will soon resume! It'll also be the time to improve and master this discipline or learn it for the first time.

On what criteria should you choose your Bellydance teacher?

Some will already have their favorite teacher close to home with time slots and teaching methods that suit them. Others will have to look for a Bellydance teacher. To do this, head towards dance schools and associations present in your area because oriental dance is widespread and this discipline widely taught. 

Learn about the teacher's background and especially if she followed a bellydance training or introductory courses with other teachers or internationally renowned dancers. It's also better that the teacher has a good knowledge of anatomy to teach safe dance moves for your back, pelvis and other highly stressed body parts.

Use extreme care checking the premises. It'll be easier practicing Bellydance in large rooms (if you practice large-scale accessories such as Isis wings or bellydance canewith preferably mirrors to make your learning easier. Also asked the number of students in class to make sure that the room won't be packed and you'll be able to learn in the best conditions. 

Also ask if there is or not an end-of-the-year show and ask to watch DVDs or pictures of the gala, this will give you an idea of the choreographic style of each teacher. Ask your teacher about the costume budget for the end-of-year gala so you won't be surprise when it comes to purchasing it, and the gala date if it's already set to make sure you'll be available that day.

What Bellydance outfit should you have?

Finally for classes, plan a feminine and comfortable dance outfit. Cotton T-shirt, leggings or pants, small sequins belts or elastane skirt that perfectly match your dance moves and small ballet shoes.

Most oriental dance teachers offer introductory courses or free weeks to discover Bellydance. Enjoy it and surrender to passion !
