You must have been dancing at Improver Level for a minimum of three terms and have a solid understanding of  improver level technique before joining this class.

Intermediate Level is for more experienced dancers who have developed a solid understanding of core belly dance technique and can execute this clearly. This class is taught at a faster pace, you will be working on more challenging technique and  choreography which may involve the use of props and working together as a group.

There is strong emphasis on performance and all members of the Intermediate class are encouraged to perform with the student troupe Aiwa! at haflas, festivals and local events, however this will be dependant on regular attendance in weekly classes and rehearsals.

 At intermediate level, you will be expected to take more control of your own learning and dance development through attending classes regularly,  and taking time in between classes to practice technique and choreography. It is also strongly recommended that students in this class attend workshops with other teachers wherever possible, in addition to the course
