The Dark Side Dance Program
“Wonderful instruction, detailed information, and a well rounded education. I find myself dreaming of Lavender and Turquoise now…” Jaene C.
“Whirlwind of thoughts, concepts, questions and lightbulb moments… I’m constantly amazed both by the depth of knowledge Audra possesses and the generosity with which she shares it.” Andy A.The Dark Side Dance Program is a series of intensive workshops designed to provide a comprehensive, multi-stage foundation for belly dancers of any style. This dual pronged approach, with focus on both technique and musicality, aims to provide students with the ability to practice, create, and perform belly dance, with individuality, confidence and versatility.
The four stages of the Dark Side Dance Program encourage students to develop body awareness, control, and critical thinking as they develop technical and creative skills through drills, discussion, critique, and group exercises.
Testing is available upon completion of that stage’s intensive. Successful certification at each stage is granted to students who:
- Attend all class time
- Have of all homework assignments
- Have successfully completed written and practical tests
Students are encouraged to repeat intensives, even after successful completion. A separate teaching intensive with certification will be available to those who have successfully completed all four stages of the Dark Side Dance Program. Certified dancers are listed on the Dark Side Studio’s website.
