Introduction to the course


Belly dance is famous as a folk dance performed by women throughout the Arabian world in such countries as Egypt and Turkey. This dance, expressing the woman's curvaceous beauty to the maximum, is characterized by body movements involving the waist, belly and chest. Belly dance is also derived from its characteristic belly movement. In addition to these torso movements, soft movements of hands and arms are also added, enhancing further the attractiveness of women.

Tiempo’s lessons are taught by experts who are active overseas. Interacting with instructors who express themselves through dance across borders will not only provide dance techniques, but also a rich sense of sensitivity. This kind of lesson can only be experienced at Tiempo, a place where you can promote your own growth and achieve true communication through intercultural exchange. From beginners to advanced students, we will continue to increasingly provide contents suitable to every individual level.

Intensive lessons are held every month based on various themes. Arabian dance is performed all over the Arabian region, so there is a variety of types, such as "Gypsy Dance", which is danced wearing a large skirt. "Shaabi" uses pop music in the image of a downtown woman. And there is "Saidi" which freely controls a walking stick during the dance. At the workshops, these dances with various styles and music are performed with different themes monthly.
If you already have experience in the theme of a workshop, you can register for the class without taking a regular class or being a member of TIEMPO.

Workshop schedule

Arabian Dance Show "One Thousand and One Nights"

This dance show is an event produced by the Arabian dance instructor in which students present created choreographies on stage based on different themes. This event allows them to show on a stage the results of their lessons and to build together a performance. This gives participants a sense of fulfillment after completing their performance, turning it into a valuable experience. For this reason, we have many students that participate every time.
