FAQs about the Formation Courses to Become a BellyDancer or Golden BellyDancer
DURATION of the BBDC
The BBDC "Become a BellyDancer Course" is a 60 hours duration completed in just 1 month, it's divided in 4 levels, the first 3 levels have international certification, the last level it's to help you to achieve the performance level. Amora created this course in Cairo EGYPT on 2008, after been 15 years teaching and performing BellyDance on top Arabian places in Morocco, Spain, France, London and Sharm el Sheikh (EGYPT).
WHY CREATING THE BBDC
The main reason why Amora Shams created this course it's to clean the image of BellyDance, creating a new era of Golden Age BellyDancers in Egypt and around the World, always teaching a lot in record time, because as far as we know, none one teaches as quick as she does, most of her BBDC students and her previous private and group students, have always been very shocked with the way how they all developed so quickly by learning from Amora. Her teaching methods, developed them during many years teaching in a very specific way, that non teacher do, just because we believe, they do not want to create competence next to them, their own students taking their own jobs.
ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATIONS
If you want Amora to register you in the international system, then you need to let her know at any time during the course. The highest level you achieve after passing successfully your written and practical exams during the course, it's the International Level Certification she will ask the international system to issue for you (up to level 3).
