JWAAD is committed to the development of dancers and teachers, not only in terms of technique, but also performance skills. This module is designed to give anyone seeking to perform belly dance the tools to do so in an effective and entertaining way, and one that is appropriate to the given audience.

Accredited by One Awards to Level 3 (of 'A' level complexity). It has a credit value of 3, which means there are approximately 32 hours of study involved over two weekends.

As JWAAD is acknowledged as the leading training provider for the study of Belly Dance, we are working with One Awards to increase the range of accredited certificates for dancers.

This course is designed by Belly Dancers for Belly Dancers. These courses will be taught by Josephine Wise and Yvette Cowles.

Feedback from the first Performance course was a fantastic course, I can't believe we covered so much in just 2 weekends. I found the Stage Fright and Preparing to Perform input really, really helpful and it did actually calm me down before the solo performances..."
