The contemporiental course is designed for dancers and movers with any prior experience in belly dance. The course is not recommended for absolute beginners but those keenly interested in belly dance will find a huge resource of meaningful tools available to them.
The 14 hour course is an in – depth study of oriental dance via a contemporary approach. It is not to be mistaken for a fusion or contemporary class but instead a class for oriental dance lovers who wish to see the style through a new perspective.
Some of the subjects that will be studied during the course are breath work, intention, extension and release, planes in space, rhythm study and expression, energy and dynamic, flow and control to name a few.
The course is highly recommended for those who have found their footing in oriental dance and wish to progress further in understanding the aesthetic of the style better.
A must for every mover/dancer
I enrolled in this when this course was just launched. It’s a course that every dancer should take I feel, because Meher teaches the tools to be better dancers, choreographers etc. Tools that one can use to choreograph or dance on any music. She teaches movements through breathwork, musicality, rhythms, understanding speed, expressions, and so much more. It’s a wholesome course that any mover would benefit from. Being in touch with the body and aware, while moving it, is something I learnt through it.
ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO ME IN 2021
I Got the opportunity to study this course with meher ma’am just after my beginners level. I had been dancing for really long in my life and for most of it was self training. This course really took me into an explorative journey of understanding role of space and breath in dance. I will highly recommend this course to dancers/non dancers of all backgrounds as well as people who want to do a research and explore movement as a metaphor. I grew so much during this course.
Fun and amazing!
I have really enjoyed learning the art of expression through belly dancing in a way that is intense yet fun. Meher is an exceptional instructor both encouraging and providing constructive support as needed. I would have liked to pursue further instructions however due to time constraints and more responsibility dancing has taken a backseat.
This was one of the most comprehensive, well thought and structured course that I have ever been a part of. We received feedback from Meher ma’am after every assignment and that really helped me a lot. This course helped me in understanding musicality, improve breath work, correct the techniques, explore time, space, and overall evolve as a dancer.
It has taught me tons of new body language and has given me a deeper understanding of movement in general .
I have been a fan of Meher ma’am from time immemorial and this has been a dream come true for me when I got an opportunity to learn from her . She does not function just as a teacher but more as a Mentor . She won’t tell you steps she will try to inculcate them in your body language , she will make it a part of your dance personality.. contemporiental is a sought after course of Meher ma’am where students get to try out bellydance from a new angle from a new perspective. It has taught me tons of new body language and has given me a deeper understanding of movement in general .
