Why join

Dance Academy Badra Falak is a visionary Oriental Dance studio. We believe that every woman has the power to become who she dreams to be. Badra Falak means ‘The Full Moon of the Universe” in the Arabic language. With her dance, a woman recreates “the sensation of looking at the stars on a clear blue night and think of how much is out there that we see, and don’t see, know and don’t know… The sum of all this is Badra Falak”.

Bellydance 1 is a very conscious training. You learn and practice the basic steps of Oriental Dance paying a lot of attention in your posture and coordination. There is absolutely no rush in this class, we take our time but of course there is a lot of variety. We focus on the grace, consciousness, body and mind control.

Bellydance 2 is physically more intensive. We work on more advanced techniques like shimmies, layering, brain teasers and passionate movements and emotions. We also work on combinations, traveling steps and hand movements. There is a big difference in the pace of music and texture the movement over the first hour.

Bellydance 3 is an artistic training that provides deep knowledge in rhythms, bellydance styles, dance culture, folklore, musicality and expression. Half an hour extra training makes a big difference in dance development (faster growth)!
