Testimonials for Shemiran Ibrahim's "Belly Dancing from the Heart Method":

"For anyone thinking of taking up bellydance teaching or someone who has been teaching but without a set plan, then this package is invaluable... I found the whole package impressive and only wish it had been around when I started teaching."
Ayesha - Editor Bellydance Oasis Magazine

"I have had the fire in my belly stirred up again with Shemiran's beautifully presented course for teaching bellydance. I have been doing bellydance since 1995 and have felt the push to teach. This was the perfect way as a working single mum to get my dream up and running. I found Shemiran's course inspirational and easy to pick up. It has a warm and kind feel to it and is very intelligently put together. I hope to pass on the 'Bellydancing from the Heart' method to potential customers and friends. Thank you Shemiran".

"Loved the whole package. Found it really helpful and loved the way it's been organised into families of movements, a great way to teach the different moves. Loved that it came with a teachers handbook as well as notes to hand out to students. I was going to make my own notes but this has saved me the time and effort and I think the students love getting them. I know they would have helped me when I was a beginner as by the time you get round to practicing at home you've forgotten quite a bit of what you learned in class. It's given me more confidence in my ability to teach a class; I know from week to week exactly what I am going to teach and it gives me the freedom to add my own personal touches. I too believe in teaching belly dance from a wholistic approach rather than just the mechanics of the moves and I try and impart to my students the essence of what learning belly dance has done for me."

"Shemiran is a rare teacher who brings so much more than being a beautiful dancer to her teaching. She is approachable and creates a great sense of joy and uniting of the feminine spirit. She moves beyond just the physicality of the dance and sees its positive, powerful energy. Her website is amazing too, a great resource on belly dance, health and celebrating womanhood. Shemiran is a treasure".
Siobhan J.

"Shemiran's classes are a sanctuary from the hussle and bustle of the week. She has a very grounded feminine approach to the dance and a wealth of experience. Shemiran breaks down belly dance moves into families and their related music for easy consumption. This means the novices master music interpretation before they know what it is to fear!"
Nicole S.

Shemiran with students"As a person that has never before taken any type dance class, I have found Shemirans classes a total joy to attend. Shemiran has developed techniques in her teaching that break down all movements into simple, applicable theory. Being able to visualise each motion clearly in the mind before attempting it, ensures the learner greater success. This in turn creates a growing confidence and greater pleasure in each class. Shemirans class not only involves movement of the body. It is a gathering of women. A spiritual gathering of all different women whom for one whole hour, can reconnect with themselves and feel beautiful and sensual whilst having lots of fun and laughter".

"Thank you so much...you are an inspiration to femininity and dance".
Anastasia M.

"Shemiran has a unique teaching style, which develops an ability to improvise rather than dance set choreography. In spite of studying many styles of dance over many years, I've always been afraid of improvisation. Shemiran's method has not only overcome my fear, it is surprisingly effective even with inexperienced students."

"She breaks down the moves for us clumsy folk and also focuses on the 3 little girls in her class one of which is my daughter. She is encouraging to all of us and explains the movement and how is should look and feel. Shemiran also explains the cultural history of the move and the dance itself."

"Shemiran's teaching style is enthusiastic and fun. She encourages individuality of dance style in her students while emphasizing the importance of a thorough grounding in classical movements. She believes that belly dancing releases the "fire in the belly" that many women have been taught to suppress. In addition to dance classes, she organises workshops and retreats designed to assist women to rediscover their feminine beauty. Her classes have enriched my life and added spice to my Saturday mornings".

"Communication plus. Excellent conveyance of cultural background. Able to adapt movement and music to varied class levels. This is the first teacher I've had who has been able to help convey passion and feeling about the music through movement rather than just 'getting through the moves."
Christine Anderson

"Shemiran is very supportive and helps each of us in the class express our inner beauty. She explains the history of the steps so we have a context for how/why each movement was developed. This really helps me understand the dance steps. I particularly like Shemiran's free-form style of teaching because, rather than just being choreographed, it allows me to use belly dancing as a wonderful expression of my femaleness. Belly dancing with Shemiran has helped my confidence, my posture and also my breathing."
