Beginners 6.00 - 7.00pm - Open level class suitable for beginners (level 1 Dance City).  
Kay teaches a range of basic moves to a range of modern Egyptian music.  A fun and informative class which will culminate in learning a piece of choreography by the end of term.

Improvers/Intermediate 7.00 -8.00pm (Dance City call this 'intermediate' class) - Once you have mastered the basic moves, this class builds on them working on more complex technique.  This term Kay will focus on technique and arms, we will also be learning a range of stepping patterns and combinations.  We will not work on choreography in this class.. 
Some drop in places on the door but it is better to book to secure your place

Intermediate/Advanced 8.00 - 9.00pm (Dance City call this 'advanced' class)
This term Kay is working on a project for the Funoon show on 18th April 2015, if you want to be involved in this, you need to commit for the full term.  Some of the technique for the show will be covered in the 7pm class so ideally participants should make both classes.  IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN TO THIS CLASS BEFORE, YOU NEED TO CHECK WITH KAY THAT IT WILL BE SUITABLE

Kay is an experienced teacher who has studied with the JWAAD school and was awarded her teaching diploma in Arabic Dance in 1999. Kay has been teaching in the North East for 8 years and her classes are very popular. Kay believes in enthusing her students with her love of the dance, music and culture.

Classes tend to be based on a choreography in different styles of Egyptian Belly dance: modern pop, folk, oriental etc. As classes are open level so of mixed ability, Kay focuses on basic technique at the beginning then goes on to more complex things in the second half for the more experienced dancers.

Kay works in Cairo at various festivals and takes groups to study with top dancers. When this happens, Kay arranges for one of the teachers below or other top teachers in the area to take her classes. This gives students the chance to develop their own style by learning with a range of teachers.

Kay is a fully qualified JWAAD teacher and member of the JTA (JWAAD Teachers Association).
