Accredited by the One Awards to Level 3 (of 'A' level complexity), this course has a credit value of 3, which means there are approximately 32 hours of study involved over two weekends.
As JWAAD is acknowledged as the leading training provider for the study of Belly Dance, we are working with the One Awards to increase the range of accredited certificates for dancers.
This course is designed by Belly Dancers for Belly Dancers (and anyone interested in History and Culture relating to Belly Dance).
These courses will be taught by Yvette Cowles, Kay Taylor, Gwen Booth, Claire Barnfather and Hilde Cannoodt.
• Students who want to increase their knowledge of Middle Eastern History and Culture relating to Belly Dance
• The evolution of Belly Dance from Ancient Egypt to present day Cairo and Tribal Fusion
For those who want to work towards either the JWAAD Teaching Diploma or JWAAD Performance Diploma, you need to be of Intermediate level and there are additional classes on each weekend, so the cost reflects this. You might want to contact Kay for further details on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
