      What BOOST participants are saying

      Online BOOST Class Experiences:

      “Being part of the online BOOST series was a wonderful experience. Khalida is a great teacher. I always love her classes in real life.
      In these past months I joined the online classes (I was a bit nervous because I am not such a fan of computers and online stuff) I did not know if online would work for me.
      It was amazing.
      Although we worked form a computer screen it felt like real personal contact.
      These classes really improved my posture, fluidity and dancing.
      Looking forward to the 2021 series!!!”
      I. The Netherlands

      “I originally signed up for Khalida’s BOOST classes because I saw she was offering a silk veil series, and that happened to be a topic I was working on at the time. I’m really glad I did! Although I normally prefer to focus my training on all things Egyptian, I have found these classes, and Khalida’s approach to teaching, incredibly helpful.

      I’m not a naturally coordinated person, and I’ve often found my dancing is held back by muscle imbalances and body awareness issues, which aren’t addressed in most bellydance classes.

      So I really appreciate that Khalida breaks each topic down to its absolute basics and goes through the underlying anatomy, with carefully chosen exercises to activate and release exactly the right muscles for each movement.

      It is like a multidisciplinary bodywork class designed especially for the physical demands of bellydance!

      I can already tell after a few months that this is helping to give me a much stronger physical foundation for all of my dancing, which I can take with me into whichever styles I am studying.

      It really is BOOSTing the overall level of my dancing! Plus, the short classes are a lovely low-pressure way to unwind with movement, after a day of working at my desk :)”

      – R. United Kingdom

      “I love Khalida’s approach : on Monday strength exercises, on Tuesday relaxation and on Friday we dance.

      These 30-min sessions are quite intensive, but a lot of fun.

      Afterwards I’m bursting with energy!

      Since Khalida does not only master belly dance, but also studies ballet and Korean sword, she teaches differently from other teachers.

      I signed up for the Super Student packages because real-time zoom classes seem to motivate me more: Khalida gives immediate and effective feedback during the class that will help you to improve your dance in a correct way.

      After each BOOST series, your dance is transformed completely.

      My shimmies are a lot stronger, my posture is improved and when I dance I focus on a lot more than only ‘dancing’.

      I would recommend these classes for everybody: from beginners to advanced.”

      – S. Belgium

      ———————-

      “As someone who has been dancing for many years, I have found Khalida’s online veil BOOST classes invaluable to build upon and develop my technique and to learn new skills so that I can take my dancing to the next level.

      Khalida is highly knowledgeable, her warm and giving personality make her online classes an absolute joy and I highly recommend them!

      I found the cross training and strengthening exercises really helpful too.”

      – C. UK

      ———————

      “Khalida is the most amazing teacher and taught me during her online courses so much on posture, travel steps and dancing with a veil.

      I have been belly dancing for over 10 years now, but she keeps on amazing me on the different aspects there are (you really can never stop learning!) and teaches in detail everything you need to know in order to be a better dancer and have more confidence.

      Khalida takes the time to explain everything in dept, and because I have access to the recordings, I can keep on training whenever I have time, wherever I am (even when waiting for the train to work!)

      I will for sure keep on following her online BOOST classes in the future, and I can recommend her to everyone who wants to keep on growing and perfecting their dance.”

      – K. Belgium

      ————————

      “Looooooving your 30min sessions!!

      Gives me so much new knowledge and inspiration both for myself and my teaching.

      C. – Sweden

      ——————-

      “I have started Khalida’s online July course (posture & arms BOOST) with the main aim to keep moving throughout the summer.

      As the classes progressed, I noticed that the posture of my body was changing, even when I was not dancing!

      In my daily life (but also during dancing), I have the tendency to have a closed posture, meaning that my shoulders tend to ‘hang’ to the front of my body.

      By the end of the 4 weeks of this series, my posture had completely reversed!

      My shoulders are much more open now and this translates in more confidence, an unexpected bonus.

      I am much more aware of my body now, and I tend to self-correct naturally whenever I feel a ‘slouch’. Additionally, my dancing has changed, especially my arms.

      There seems to be much more freedom in my movements now.

      I recommend Khalida’s online classes heartily, as there is something in these classes for everyone of each dance/movement level.

      Not only your dance will benefit, but you will feel the positive effects in your daily life as well!”

      – K. Belgium

      ———————

      “When I booked the first month (BD Basics) I didn’t plan on doing all three sessions per week – I’m already super flexible and do my own strength training.

      But when I joined those cross trainings I soon realized how great this combination really works: on Mondays and Tuesdays you prepare yourself by working on strength and mobility, but mostly on connecting with your body.

      This new awareness then helps you make great leaps of improvement during the Friday dance sessions.

      This program of bodywork and dance let me see unexpectedly huge effects – on a belly dance-teacher and dance-student with 22 years of classes!

      So if you love Khalida’s graceful elegance and are ready for some deep but fun bodywork-classes: join us!”

      Kim Khalida Bech

      portraitkhalida

      Hello there! I’m Kim, also known as Khalida (meaning ‘forever’ :)) Dance

      I’m a multi-award winning oriental dance performer and international instructor, as well as a martial arts student, born in Belgium, based in Germany.

      As an experienced workshop teacher I deeply enjoy combining experience from different movement fields and dance forms and using that knowledge to work with dancers, teachers and students of all levels.

      I like to infuse my online classes and workshops with movement tips drawn from classical Ballet, Belly Dance, Contemporary Dance, Body Mechanics, Flexibility and Strength Work, but also Performance Theory as well as various types of Martial Arts (Tae Kwon Do and Korean Sword Art/Haidong Gumdo)

      My main focus is to use simple, but effective movements to help dancers open up their posture and increase body awareness, from the inside out. I want to enable as many dancers as possible to move freely and elegantly, with flow.

      Contact me for any questions:

      If you have any questions about the Khalida Online 2021 BOOST Program, don’t hesitate to Email me!

      I’m looking forward to sharing the BOOST Online 2021 adventure with you.

      Much love, and see you soon!
