In this workshop I’m going to share with you 52 lesson plans that you can use for your beginner or mixed ability level classes for a full year. My aim is to help you if you are new to teaching belly dance, or if you struggle to come up with a formal plan for each of your lessons.
In the spirit of “Teach a man to fish” – I will also be sharing with you the formula that I use to create lesson plans, so that you can go forward with lesson plans that better suit your students or your teaching style, lessons for more advanced students and lessons that suit your own dance philosophy.
There are two ways you can use this workshop:
Sara Shrapnell spent 12 years teaching, performing and hosting events in the UK before moving to the Bay Area of San Francisco in 2011. Her classes are known for their humor, detailed breakdowns and cultural context. She adapts her lessons to suit the dancers, their needs and aims. Students who have studied with Sara have gone on to teach and perform in all styles of belly dance and many have made their living through performance or teaching. Sara’s books “Teaching Belly Dance” and “Becoming a Belly Dancer: From Student to Stage” are available on Amazon.
