I really want you all to learn as much as you can in my Davis belly dance classes. Here are a couple tips on how to get the most out of your belly dance class with me.
If you don’t understand, please ask a question about the belly dance step I am teaching. Many people have different learning styles. While I try my best to cater to them all, sometimes you just need a different way of thinking about the movement. Other people probably have the same question so please question away.
A little note pad and pen are great tools to write down combos you really like or the technique to a difficult step. Please feel free to take a step to the back of the room to write. I don’t mind at all as long as you are not being disruptive.
You don’t have to devote 3 hours a day to practicing (if you want to, great!), but 5 minutes reviewing one or two steps from your notes will definitely help you reach that next level quicker. You can practice in your apartment gym, at the UC Davis ARC between your classes or in the safety of your own room. There are few things we learn once then can do perfectly and belly dance is definitely not one of them.
See you in class soon!
