Finding a Class
If you are trying to find a suitable Middle Eastern Dance class in your area, you have several options:
A few hints:
Although some teachers run Drop In classes, many use a structured progressive course, especially those within the Adult Education system. If the course has already started, you may find you have some catching up to do. You may also find it is rather expensive to join a termly class if there are only a few weeks left until the holidays. So it might make sense to wait until the new term starts.
If you are a complete beginner, it really is best to join a Beginners class- don’t be tempted to join an Intermediates class & assume you’ll be able to pick it up. You’ll only get frustrated. Even if you have experience in other dance forms, trust me- Arabic Dance is a whole other ball-game! You can always move up, if you find you progress well.
You may want to talk to the teacher beforehand, to get a feel of what the class will entail (e.g. "dress code", style of dance taught, technique level, etc.)
