ABOUT THE IANA DANCE CLUB
The idea behind the Iana Dance Club is to allow you not only to work on your dance technique, but also boost ACCOUNTABILITY and MOTIVATION, which are the main struggles in an online training.
Iana Dance Club is a way for you to:⠀
train on a WEEKLY basis - every week you’ll receive a new 20-min drill on belly dance technique, plus access to all previous drills (50+ tutorials)⠀
follow a detailed breakdown of choreographies - every month there will be a new style (belly dance or folklore)⠀
receive an INDIVIDUAL feedback for your dancing - you send Iana your video, and get recommendations from her⠀
follow suggested weekly plan for your training - which takes your headache and frustration away on how to approach your own practice ⠀
stay motivated to practice on a regular basis - every month we will run different mini-intensives that will make your practice fun and engaging. Your only competitor will be your own laziness, and your motivation will be our community and special bonuses from Iana ⠀
connect with other likeminded dancers - there is a whole community member’s zone with different discussions, ways to reach out, and find new friends!⠀
And this is just a small snippet of what we have at the Iana Dance Club!

I’m really grateful to practice belly dance here with everyone and learn from our great teacher Iana. I feel lucky finding this platform, and I felt that my belly dance skills got improved a lot since I joined this club.
It works great for me to practice by following the drills. I normally practice three times every week, and two drills each time. I just finished practicing all the posted drills so far, and I’m about to start adding choreographies into my weekly practice.
The most valuable aspect of this platform for me is that I got to find an amazing belly dance teacher and constantly practice with her. I feel like I’m engaged in class every time when I practice the drills.
I couldn’t find a good belly dance studio where I live, and this is the only good belly dance classes I could find online, so this platform is extremely important to me. I really appreciate that Iana made my passion for belly dance keep going.

My name is Karina, I have been at the Iana Dance club for about 3 months and I can say that I am very happy that I joined :)
First, Iana’s 20-minute video method is great for overcoming my laziness on those difficult-to-get-motivated days, but she also has plenty of intensives and choreographies to work on.
Second, I am amazed at how many new moves and exercises I have been learning with it.
Third, she is very informative and I love how she recognizes the advice of other very good dancers and teachers to give us more information in order to make you grow as a dancer.
I have to add that being in the club has helped me to maintain active in my training to keep positive.
Dance is definitely a therapy and I highly recommend this club that is full of supportive women and an amazing teacher.

I've started dancing just a few years ago. My teacher left town after a few months, so I've started to educate myself, knowing technique is very important, but nearly unreachable if no one tells you! That's why I'm so happy with your school. I really like your drills. Often small tips give me the feeling to improve a little bit (that “ahaaa!” effect =))
Additionally, and I hope you'll take this as a compliment, I'm so tired of Western teaching styles. Always hearing it's good, even if it isn't, 'cause they want to be nice to everyone. Eastern teaching styles are more effective. They tell you honestly what's wrong, even if it hurts, but it helps more. You give us both. A schedule, projects, but even the freedom of choice. I adore your perfect mixture of drilling us and being nice at the same time!
And there wasn't one single week that I thought was boring. You are so full of ideas, it seems to me that you really live your dream. Furthermore I like the atmosphere in the chat, so many nice people from around the world. I recommend you everywhere!
