But remember, you can go through this intensive at your own pace. Three weeks is just a suggested structure. Let's work on our improvisation skills in Baladi style, and develop our musicality! Baladi is a very important folklore style for all belly dancers to know. It can be performed not only as a separate piece, but also as a part of an oriental song. For instance, if you hear a baladi section in your mejance (entrance song), you still need to add some baladi elements to your belly dance performance, acknowledging that you recognize the style. Baladi is not only about hips technique, but also about a certain mood and musicality. The goal of this intensive is to help you break free from the fears of improvisation, and guide you on your music exploration.
