Create a Belly Dance Performance

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.  It gives more experienced dancers a chance to reflect on where they are and adds new ideas to their toolkit, it gives less experienced dancers the confidence to go out there and perform!
