Ees'Bella BellyDance Teacher Training is finally here!!!

1 week seminars are available.  There are 8 total levels of training.  Introduction to Belly Dance is encouraged but students may begin Phase 1 which is all improvisational choreography and choreography. Each phase will take a full week of spending intensive hours in the studio with Arikah and company.  Certificates are good for 1 year with a $100 renewal fee a year and an upload for Arikah to view to make sure you are in fact teaching the EBBD format.  We encourage all dancers from all genres.  Having any belly dance background is helpful but not required.  A manual is required of purchase to be looked over before the training.  Please send an inquiry to and/or text/call Arikah for more information of upcoming dates and trainings.  At the end of your training a hafla will take place with an award ceremony.  We encourage you to spread the EBBD love across the globe with this wonderful format that will polish up all your skills whether you are from an ATS(R), ITS, Fusion, or Classical background.  If you  have no experience in Belly Dance and do not present the material to pass the end exam you may re-take it and/or work on it until you are able to pass. You may send in videos and footage as well as have an online exam so that you have a second chance to pass and earn your certificate. The next scheduled training is October 5-7, 2018.
