Hi I'm Keti Sharif. Welcome to A-Z Bellydance! My courses offer a Somatic approach to movement for fluidity, ease and receptivity. I teach both dancers and non-dancers, of all ages and abilities to explore Somatics and enjoy the sense of self discovery mindful movement brings, at every level. A-Z supports students and professionals to connect more deeply to their dancing. In 2019 our courses will unlock your creativity, musicality and deepen your dance knowledge!

Somatics teaches us to pay more attention to our bodies, and benefits our wellbeing in many ways. A-Z encourages the somatic exploration of structure and flow, to enrich your bellydance skills and expand your movement repertoire.

A-Z Bellydance and Astrobelly sequences reflect patterns within Egyptian music. Adaptable and easy to personalise, the structures encourage dancers to explore their own responses, and sense and express more fully, for a more satisfying dance experience. The methodology distills 30 years research and dancing to live Arabic music, plus years living in Egypt and working with musicians and dance artists. A-Z was inspired by Mahmoud Reda since 1994, and later Farida Fahmy, and enriched by many artists, and the spontaneous, organic dance that is a part of life and celebration in Egypt.

A-Z Bellydance is currently being taught in 40 countries worldwide and we have a wonderfully diverse, creative and supportive community.
