Belly Dance Teacher Certification by Correspondence

Certification for Shemiran Ibrahim's "Belly Dancing from the Heart Method" Teacher Training Program for Middle Eastern Dance & Fusion teachers is available by Correspondence Certification world-wide.

Certification is granted when a teacher/teacher in training passes four units, based on Shemiran's "How to Teach Belly Dance with Passion, Professionalism & Profit" Program. The four units of Certification are:

Unit 1:
The Craft of Teaching; Awakening Teacher Mind & Teacher Spirit   

Unit 2:
Business Skills for Success                                                   

Unit 3:
Curriculum & Teaching Method

Unit 4:
Short Video Assessment               


Why Get Certified?

There are many reasons to get Certified! A few are:

  • "Belly Dancing from the Heart Method" is now being used across the globe from the USA, to Japan, UK, Canada, Europe, South America, Australia and NZ. Join the international community using this Method.

  • Belly Dance Teacher Certification helps elevate your professionalism and levels of skill, and mastery of the craft of teaching. As you answer the Unit questions, you dive deeper into your study material, your business planning and into yourself as a teacher, much deeper than if you just studied the material at home on your own. 

  • Students love to know their teacher is Certified, as it gives them confidence that they will receive a quality learning experience, this of course helps with women choosing to enrol into your classes as well. 

How to Get Certified:
