Intermediate I Middle Eastern Dance Class Outline
By Rabiah Banu - Fairbanks, AK

(Editor's Note: This is a suggested class outline for general use, generously provided by Rabiah (Thank you)! It is not in anyway 'official' or definitive, so add or delete what you will, but this is pretty good. If you have an independently developed outline you'd like to contribute, please let me know --Stefan)

Intermediate I Outline:

At the end of each class day, I encourage my students to do a short group improvisation. We also practice playing and dancing with finger cymbals using the rhythms that they learned in the Beginning class (Beladi and Chiftelli).
