Jamila level 1 Certification Test
Nick-named the mother of Belly Dance in America, Jamila's technique sowed the seeds for both American Cabaret and Tribal/Tribal Fusion. She was the first teacher to break down, and name the steps of what she called "la danse orientale". Have you heard of the 3/4 shimmy, mayas or figure eights? It is thanks to Jamila Salimpour that this terminology exists, and even Egyptian teachers use it. Jamila is also know for her finger cymbal teaching method based on numbers, and for the troupe and show that she created - Bal Anat - which you may have had the chance to see perform in Brussels in April 2018 or October 2016. www.maelledanse.com
