A-Z Bellydance Courses blend Somatic elements with Egyptian cultural dance & live Arabic music and rhythms. You’ll reference a wide spectrum of rhythms & authentic styles to enhance your musicality and cultural awareness. From these deep, Somatic roots, your dance can expand into many areas including modern, contemporary and fusion - with a true awareness of authentic Arabic dance; it's nuance and temperaments.
The refreshed year-long online study program features 16 Progressive Courses (delivered in 40 Modules) with brand new additions: 40 Arabic Rhythms LIVE, Al Kawakib and AstroBelly Refilmed versions, Nawara Tribal & the theatrical Pharaonic inspired Lotus Series. Enjoy Reda Drills, referencing Keti's mentor, Farida Fahmy's rehearsal drills for rhythmic diversity, Keti's brand new Neo Raqs, plus freshly filmed, updated versions of the full suite of ALL A-Z Courses complete with Live stage performances.
Keti’s Somatic approach to Arabic dance deepens your internal sensing of movement & connection to music & rhythm. A-Z participants may attend live interactive Zoom classes each month at the spacious new Blue Lotus Room in Perth, and there are workshops in London, New York, Toronto and Singapore.
