What I’m handling is to Educate BELLY DANCE Students. I have to be prepared. There are just too many misnomers and bad practices in this dance form. For this dance to survive and have meaning dancers need to be educated properly by instructors who really know what they are doing. Too many dancers take the wrong road and look for easy way. Dance cannot be built that way.
Like anything in Life there’s always more to learn. I hope to open your eyes and you will be propelled to learn even more and be more proficient an Artist. Instructing is not something I’ve learned in a week or a month or even a few years. IT IS A LIFE-TIME OF LEARNING. Even though I now do not take regular classes. I’m still Learning. DANCE IS LIKE THE FLOW OF LIFE THAT IS …..FOREVER CHANGING ! With that said, remember the ROOTS of The DANCE. They NEVER change. So….be open, be focused and never waiver from what you…BELIEVE.
A great Teacher is far…., far greater than a great performer. It is always easier to give than to get. It takes Eight CONCENTRATED Years to train an Ethic Dancer, but it Takes a LIFETIME to Build a Great INSTRUCTOR.
TALENT MUST BE COUPLED WITH MATURITY! ”Life may not be the party we hoped for, while we are here we should…dance.
KEYS to Happy Teaching From The Dances of UNIVERSAL-PEACE.
