Introduction to the advanced classes

Introduction to the concept and structure behind my advanced classes

Please watch this before doing your first advanced class

Before you start please watch this short explanation and demonstration of the body conditioning section of our advanced classes.

Lesson one

Enjoy this opening class, which includes a warm up with body conditioning, advanced shimmy and maya drills, a travelling combination with layering and a 32 count baladi-style combination. It finishes with a standing stretch.

Lesson two

Our second class includes our usual warm up, conditioning, advanced shimmy and maya drills. I then teach a reverse walking circle and two variations on the jewel. We finish with an extension to our combination from last week.

Lesson three

Our third class starts to move a little faster. After our warm up, conditioning, drills and layering challenges, we look at three different forms of arabesques and then learn a new combination to Ana Bastanak – a favourite piece of music for many dancers.

Lesson four

In our fourth advanced class we do a new maya exercise, explore different figure of eights and then learn another 32 count combination to Ana Bastanak. We then put this combination together with the previous one to build up a good long section of choreography to this beautiful piece of music.
