Who can Join the Course:
Females of All Starting Levels are Welcome to study this Intensive Course
All Levels are Welcome to study the BGBDC from Beginner Level
As you can figure out is a very intensive program, but don't worry if you struggle during the course, because Amora's speciality is to make sure each student achieves the highest level day by day, guiding you, but she also needs your help to make it happen.
All students who want to achieve the professional level at the end of the course, no matter their starting level, they must work hard every day, no laziness is allowed during the daily training, otherwise it will show up at the end of the course.
And if Amora doesn't see you ready for the Show Test, she will not let you present yourself in front of the public, so you can't get the Professional Level Certificate, you will only have achieved the highest level Certificate during the course. To be able to pass all exams, all students must do their daily written and practical homeworks, if you do not do them, then you will not pass the exams even if you start the course as a professional level student.
So, this course is very intensive and requires full dedication to achieve best result at the end of the course.

Feedback by previous students:
All students who come as absolute beginners do not understand the value of Amora Shams classes or courses, they assume that the way that Amora Shams teaches should be the way that all other BellyDance Teachers do worldwide, instead those who have suffered the other teachers systems are more objective and can evaluate the high level, clarity, deep knowledge not only in the movements but also in the History but the therapeutical side of it, and the total dedication that Amora Shams provides to her students, that it's difficult to find nowadays in any other teacher worldwide, and this is why she gets the feedbacks she gets.
