Become a BellyDancer Course: the Most Intensive Dance Trainning

At this moment i am only offering an intensive 1 month BellyDance course known as BBDC, that can also be taught the same program in 12 Super Intensive Days.
The difference between both are:
* The 1 month Program is taught 3 hours per day during 20 days, plus extra 4 days for exams. Has written and practical homework and exams with International BellyDance Certification.
* The 12 days Program is taught 5 hours per day. Doesn't have any exams, only time for learning as workshops, getting better results as a private student. And non international certificate is provided.
This course has changed the life of those students who has study it, specially for those who were successful on their daily homework and therefore exams. And you can search about this, all information is out there online.
The BBDC "Become a BellyDancer Course" Fees with Accomodation taught either in EGYPT or in SPAIN are:
* As a private student: 3000 euros
* As a group student: 1500 euros per student.
Please Note: if you want Course without accomodation is 500 euros less for private students or 300 euros less for students inside a group.
When i travel out of this two countries to teach the course, the fee is 5000 euros, either for a private student or for a group of students.
The dates and place is previously stated by student who books me and my free availability to teach it to her, before booking proceeds on the Student Registration Form which will be the contract between her and me and will be send to her once it is confirmed by her that she is ready to book on dates and place stablished.
Right now i am in Hurghada EGYPT, so if someone books me in the next 3 days to teach her here in the remaining month of April 2017, i will stay here until I end her intensive training. I was planing to travel abroad, but if i get booked i will stay.
To book dates and place, it is necessary to pay 50% in advace by bank transfer and the remaining fee by cash or by bank transfer, to start the course. All payments done to me are non refundable,  if she changes her mind it's her problem. My course is like a flight, once you are in, you have to go on, you can not ask the pilot to go back to your departure airport and return to you the money because you are scared of the high speed or the higth.
If you need more information you can ask me by email:
Warm Regards, Amora Shams

BBDC upplevelsen tillsammans med Amora Ă€r nĂ„got jag aldrig kommer glömma. Amora Ă€r en fantastisk dansare och lĂ€rare som vet precis hur hon ska nĂ„ dansaren inom oss alla. Hon Ă€r sĂ„ otroligt engagerad och entusiastisk inför varje lektion och smittar en med sin danspassion. I denna kurs tĂ€cker hon allt och lite till som gĂ€ller för att bli en magdansare, men man lĂ€r sig sĂ„ mycket mer Ă€n bara dans. Vill du lĂ€ra dig magdansa Ă€r Amora och BBDC kursen det bĂ€sta valet. Hon tar sin uppgift pĂ„ allvar och hon bryr sig jĂ€ttemycket om att hennes elever ska nĂ„ sina mĂ„l och sprida sin magi ut i vĂ€rlden. Hon ser sina elever som smĂ„ frön, som hon planterar, vĂ„rdar, matar och skyddar och nĂ€r man vĂ€xt sig stor och stark och kommit upp till ytan Ă€r man redo att strĂ€cka sig mot ljuset. Amora öppnade upp mĂ„nga lĂ„sta dörrar i mitt huvud och förklarar dansens stora betydelse och mening. Hon lĂ€r dig KORREKT teknik, dansens otroliga historia och lockar fram dig i din dans. Hennes sĂ€tt att lĂ€ra ut Ă€r 100% baserat pĂ„ hennes elev, hon skrĂ€ddarsyr kursen efter dig, dina behov och önskningar. Hon Ă€r otroligt snĂ€ll, generös, förstĂ„ende men framför allt ROLIG. Den hĂ€r resan har för mig varit över alla förvĂ€ntningar och jag har aldrig varit sĂ„ sĂ€ker pĂ„ vart jag ska i livet förens nu. BĂ€sta Amora TACK.

"BBDC experience along with Amora is something I will never forget. Amora is a great dancer and teacher who knows exactly how she will reach the dancer in all of us. She is so incredibly dedicated and enthusiastic about every class, infecting one with her dance passion. This course covers her everything and more that apply to become a belly dancers, but you learn so much more than just dancing. Want to learn magdansa is Amora and BBDC course the best choice. She takes her job seriously and she cares very much about her students to reach their goals and spread their magic into the world. She sees her students as small seeds, which she planted, nurture, feed and protect and when grown big and strong and come up to the surface, ready to extend to the light. Amora opened up many doors locked in my head, and explains the dance importance and meaning. She will teach you proper technique, dance incredible history and brings out in your dancing. Her way of teaching is 100% based on her students, she will tailor the course for you, your needs and desires. She is incredibly kind, generous, understanding and above all FUN. This trip has been for me above all expectations and I have never been sure where I'm going in life, the bow now. Best Amora THANKS."

Diferences between Group Students and Private Students studying the BBDC

When you are booking this BellyDance Course you must know that you don't have the same rights when booking as a Private Student than as a Group Student:

Private Students rights and obligations
  • You will be learning in a One-to-One trainning alone with Amora Shams, so all the attention will be over you
  • You can chose if you want or not your Show Test Video Performance and photos, to be published Online, to become or not a part of the future Marketing of this Course.
  • If during the course, you decide not to go forward following the structure of the course,  then you can decide to change it into something else, such as into creating choreographies, stretching for becoming flexible or Acrobatic Dancer, or focus into another fields inside this dance form as a Sufi Dervish Dancer, Folklore Dancer, etc.
  • To get the Certifcation, you decide in how long period of time you want to complete the BBDC, either in 12 days Program (5 hours per day plus exams) or in 25 days Program (3 hours per day included exams).

Group Students rights and obligations
  • You will be learning in a Group trainning with other collegues, so you will share the attention with your classmates, and as more are in the group, less chances of quicker development
  • The Show Test Video Performance will be published Online on the Internet, becoming part of the marketing of this course, as a prove that the BBDC "Become a BellyDancer Course" works and is giving the results that are published. You will not have any copyrights over this material, as all how you performed was according to what you learned during the course.
  • When you are inside a course, you must follow the Course Structure until the last day
  • As a Group Student if you take the 12 days Program (6 hours per day) you will not get any Certification, so to get the Certfication you must study the BBDC in two months Program, which means what you saved on the Course fees by booking as a group student, you will spend it in the food and accomodation fees.
  • As a Group Student joinning a Group Course, if the Group is not organised, you will only get the proportion of the Course fees you paid for, which is a minimum of the 3rd part of the course, so as the BBDC is a 60 hours taught program, you will only be paying for 20 Private Hours, that if this happens to you, you can chose if you want to study them in less time, keep the original progammed dates, or decide to join the Group Course in a future edittion.
  • To get Certified as a Group Student of the BBDC in 25 days  Program you must organise your own group, and book the course as a Group of minimum 3 students (not as a private student joinning a Group Course).
