Most women will fail at learning belly dance.
Or even worse, they won’t ever give it a try. Why?
Simply put, it’s either one of two things:
Many belly dance teachers over-complicate belly dance and make it too hard to learn
Women think belly dance is “not for them” for a whole bunch of reasons that are simply not true
For the past 16 years I have taught belly dance in almost every setting imaginable.
Big corporate gyms. Small boutique studios. School classrooms. Community centers. Senior citizen centers. Nonprofits for “at-risk” youth. Summer camps.
I even taught belly dance at a dance studio in Osaka, Japan for 4 months. Without words. Because no one spoke English.
I saw the struggles painted painfully on my students' faces. The look that said “I can’t do this”, “I feel stupid and uncoordinated”, “I don’t like the way I look.” And worst of all...
“I want to give up.”
I then became hyperfocused on a single goal:
How can I make belly dancing as easy as possible and get women to feel successful within minutes?
I earned the title of the “10 Minute Belly Dance Teacher” because I can have any woman experiencing the joy of belly dance in under 10 minutes. (I haven’t lost a challenge yet!)
But more than that, I didn’t want to just teach women how to belly dance, I wanted to help them become a creator in their own body, within hours, instead of years.
This was the inspiration for what I’m about to show you!
This myth has prevented literally thousands of women from experiencing the joy and fun of belly dance. Learning belly dance is just like learning any skill, it just takes patience, practice, consistency and the right instruction. Even if you think you were born “uncoordinated” or are a “natural klutz”, believe me, you can totally do this!
YouTube is great for learning things or adding to your already existing knowledge, but it will never teach you a comprehensive system for learning a complex skill. Why? Even the greatest YouTube playlist is still a random collection of videos. It’s not a system. YouTube is awesome and I’ve learned a lot from it, but it’s important to be realistic about what it can and can’t teach you. Give yourself the best shot at learning something really well. Learn a system and not just random videos.
It’s so easy to get into black and white thinking, but the truth is that little actions over time create the most powerful results. People can learn a language in only 10 minutes a day. And belly dance is a “body” language you can learn in the same amount of time. Each of the videos in Feminine Fire are designed to easily fit into your daily routine, so even if you only have 10 minutes a day you can learn quickly and make incredible progress.
