“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 :)”
