We hold a series of 6 live lectures every 12 months which run alongside the course. These are free to learners who subscribe to ‘Bellydance Music Explored’.  This music course was created by JWAAD and is now delivered, developed and updated by Bellydance Now.

The course is suitable for:

  • Students who want to create a deep understanding of the music
  • Performers who want to add range to their dance
  • Bellydance teachers who want more information to share with their students and to plan exciting classes

‘Bellydance Music Explored’ is made up of 6 in-depth courses: 

  • Recognise Instruments for Bellydance
  • Recognise Rhythms for Bellydance
  • Egyptian Styles for Bellydancers
  • Middle Eastern Styles for Bellydancers

  • Music for Fusion & World Dance Styles

Each of the courses has mini-quizzes to help you consolidate the information.  These are not graded and you can do them as many times as you want.  At the end of each course, there is a graded quiz.

Live Zoom lectures and workshops run alongside the online work – see at the bottom of this page.
