BBDC 2013 edition:

The psicologist Maria Jesús joined the course but she didn't end it due that she was going through her divorce and she could not focus in the course, and she could not achieve the resoults she came for. Since then Prof. Amora leaves it clear in her posts that to come to this Course, you need to have free time to focus totally into it due to it's intensity. Even so Mª Jesús got good resoults in the witten exams but not in the practical exams. When this happens, Prof. Amora give flexibility to private students to join the course in a future edition but with group students paying the 50% of regular students fee.

The school children teacher Ania polish mother of two living in Spain, studied the BBDC getting good resoults, nowadays she is a regular group bellydance teacher in the inland of Marbella area.

BBDC 2014 edition:

A native spanish language teacher in Norway, Maria, started the BBDC but due that Prof. Amora got hospitalised due to a sickness she suffered on her last stay in Cairo June 2014, Maria recieved few classes from the BBDC while Amora was lying on the hospital bed and later on at Amora's home in Cairo, even so Amora's doctor told her to stop all activities because of her illness, Amora was forced by doctors to stay in bed for 2 months. So Amora found the solution of asking her master teacher, Alia Shams to teach her, but few days later Maria felt she had learned enough and left the course in the middle of it.  Even so, Maria learned more than enough to start her dance career in Egypt, she moved from Norway to Cairo where she is performing regulary.

Two students from the arabian country of Yemen studied half of the BBDC, they both work for the international Red Cross, and they use the knowledge they learned in this Bellydance course as a dance theraphy for Yemeni women. We can not name them or put their faces because of obious reasons.

BBDC 2015 edition:

A 8 years BellyDance instructor Chandra owner of Scimitar Studios in the USA, studied the BBDC on summer, and since she experienced Amora's program and also Alia Shams classes the year before (when Amora had to send her to teach the group that Chandra created due that doctors didn't allow Amora to take a plane), Chandra changed her mind into what is to be a bellydancer. Chandra knew for many years that something was missing from the classes she recieved form her previous teachers, and she found out what was this while studying with both master teachers. Chandra posted today 28th May 2016 this:

And the same happen with two students of the 2015 edition, one from Egypt that lives in Austria and the otherone from Iraq that lives in Dubai. Unless they have public profiles, Prof. Amora Shams is not allowed to publish some information by certain of her students, specially those with Arabian or Muslim backgrounds.

The world wide traveller Beata from poland living in Norway, joined the BBDC on September last year, she worked from absolute beginner until professional level, achieving a great resoult from her audience at the Show Test (final exam dancing in front of public and public has to choose if they own the professional level or not), even so, she hasn't start her dance career yet.
