Belly dance is a fascinating art form that started in the Middle East, but today it is practiced all across the globe by people of all shapes, sizes and ages. 

Through belly dance you can train muscles that no other activity can reach, strengthen your core, develop flexibility and achieve graceful and fluid body coordination. Moreover, belly dance will give you benefits beyond just physical ones, such as a boost in self-confidence, reconnecting your mind with your body and practicing self-love and self-care. 

My name is Iana Komarnytska. I came to my first belly dance class 16 years ago, and I had no idea it would change my life so much. Today I’m a full-time award winning professional dancer and choreographer, and I have been teaching and performing belly dance in many countries around the world.  

I created this course with one thought in my mind: to create the resource I wish I had when I was starting my belly dance journey! The result is a complete belly dance guide for beginners, with over 100 video tutorials teaching you step-by-step all basic movements (shimmies, belly rolls, circles, undulations and more), in more than 14 hours of dance practice, lectures, drills and combinations.  

This course is ideal for those who never had any experience in belly dance, or even dance in general, as well as for those who may have already began their belly dance journey and want to take their skills to the next level with solid foundations.

I designed this course in a simple manner that you can adapt to your needs, whether you have only 15 mins or several hours to practice. Each section combines a related group of movements with a detailed explanation of each one, and a summary dance combination to practice new skills. You will also get an overview of the most important rhythms, folklore styles, principles of dancing with veil, and dozens of dance combinations for polishing your technique. 

Our final sections consist of dance practice to four different types of belly dance songs, and learning a complete belly dance routine to an exciting drum solo music. In addition, you will find several bonus sections with lectures about topics related to belly dance such as costumes, props, music, and the cultural environment of this dance, as well as resources to continue your belly dance learning.

By the end of the course you will be able not only to perform all major belly dance moves such as hip drops, undulations, figure 8, and maya, but also layer them on top of different shimmies, perform to specific rhythms, and even to incorporate some props into your dance. 

All you need to begin is to be interested in exploring the beauty of dance, transforming your body and spirit with a fun physical activity, and learning to appreciate and love yourself.

If you've ever wanted to try out the beautiful art form of Belly Dance, but you've been too nervous to try out a group class or perhaps you just don't have a class nearby; then this is for you. Learn the basics, the foundations, the stuff you need to get your head around; in the comfort of your own home / space.

When I first wanted to learn belly dance, I was 15yrs old... but it would be another 10 years before I set foot in a 'scary' classroom full of strangers. I went with a friend, who dropped out after only a few classes, but I was hooked. I was lucky; my first dance teacher was kind, patient and nurturing. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get started.... but it's scary being a beginner.

With this course I hope to enable the complete beginner to confidently take their first steps on their belly dance journey.

Almost every move in our dance form is created with these basic movements. If you can master these isolations and get them in your muscle memory (which can take some time so do be patient with yourself!) then you should feel confident either taking a real live class, or, moving on to more advanced online classes.

If you feel like you already have the basics under your dance belt; then this course can be used as a deeper dive into the anatomy used to create the movement, as dancers, drilling the basic movements is always a good thing to come back to.

The life of a professional dancer is difficult by definition, but many dancers make it even more difficult for themselves by refusing to use the whole set of tools to bring them one step closer to success, decrease the level of uncertainty and physical & emotional load as much as possible. Instead, they just rely entirely on good luck, and hide behind the excuses of being bad in business, or shy to promote themselves...

There is no shame in wanting to make a living from your art.

There is no shame in actively promoting your services.

There is no shame in asking for a good level of payment for your skills.

And there is no shame in approaching your art as a business.

My name is Iana Komarnytska. I came to my first belly dance class 16 years ago, and I had no idea it would change my life so much. Today I’m an award-winning professional dancer and choreographer, with a 5-year experience of living exclusively as a full-time dancer, relying entirely on local shows as a solo artist. With more than 200 gigs per year in a non-Arabic country, without an agent or a manager, I was able to figure out not only the artistic side of this work, but also the business and logistic aspects of it. 

I created this course to gather all my knowledge about various aspects of belly dance gigs, sharing all tips and trade secrets from my own experience of being a full-time solo performer. The result is a complete business guide for belly dancers, with over 100 video lectures, in more than 30 hours of content with a step-by-step guide to unleash your belly dance performance career.

This course is for dancers who want to start dancing professionally and get paid for their performances. Whether you want to perform part-time or full-time, this course will help you build a solo dance career focusing on local gigs (weddings, restaurants, corporate events, etc)⁣. You will learn how to be your own manager, promoter, director, graphic designer, and all other roles related to the business⁣⁣ side of belly dance.

I designed this course in a simple manner gathering all topics into eight major sections:

1️⃣Where to Start/ Understanding the Nature of This Profession/ Nuances of Working in a non-Arabic Country⁣⁣⠀

2️⃣Basic Portfolio and How to Put Your Offer⁣⁣ Together⠀

3️⃣Advanced Promotional Tools & Reaching Potential Clients⁣⁣⠀

4️⃣Communication with Clients & Closing the Deal⁣⁣⠀

5️⃣Getting Ready for the Show⁣⁣⠀

6️⃣On the Day of Performance & Troubleshooting Scenarios⁣⁣⠀

7️⃣After-Show Must DOs⁣⁣⠀

8️⃣Scaling Up the Business & Taking Care of Your Career and Well-Being in the Long Term⁣⁣⠀

By the end of the course you will know all ins and outs of the belly dance gigs world. You will be able to apply your new tools right away, while you are still going through the course. Additionally, you will receive a Step-by-Step Guide to help you launch and grow your dance career. This course is not just theory-based, but it includes highly practical tools, suggestions and demonstrations with real examples (pricing, contract, template answers, website, business cards, music playlists, etc) which you can use in your own practice.

All you need to begin is to be interested in exploring the business side of being a belly dancer.
