"After several years of taking bellydance classes and performing professionally, I found that my learning curve was flattening, and that overcrowded workshops were just not what I needed to progress further. That's when I decided to invest in a 2 hours' private class with Galit. Galit was both friendly and professional. She had done her homework too, watching videos of me dancing on Youtube and asking me up front via email which topics I wanted to cover. The individual attention she gave me, coupled with her ability to dissect my dance, meant that the class was laser-focused on the aspects of my technique that I most need to improve, and it gave me material to practice for months to follow."

JWAAD Personal Development Programme

What It Is
A system of technique assessments and a personally tailored development plan which is open to all dancers and provides the support they often need.

Why Do It?
There are many reasons why a dancer may need a more personal approach to their dancing. This programme is for you if:
You have no regular teacher in your area or at your level.
You have got 'stuck' with your technique.
You are not sure where your strengths and weaknesses lie.
You are not sure of your true technique level.
You don't know how to get to the next level.
You need a boost to your confidence and a plan to work to.
You want to speed up your progress.
You do not have to be on any JWAAD course to join the Personal Development Programme.

How It Works
The plan starts with a 30 minute Technique Review to identify your technique level.
The Assessor will give you:
• some specifics to work on which will help address the weaker areas.
• an appraisal of where your strengths lie.
• a time frame and suggestions for your development.
You will receive a Personal Technique Review Sheet with a summary of the Assessor's suggestions, and a Certificate with your overall dance level.
You can agree a timeframe for your next review or book it when you feel you have progressed and want to see how you are getting on.
In between reviews you can book as many private lessons with JWAAD Assessors or Teachers as you want or need, to speed up your progress.
When you book additional Technique Reviews and your level changes, you will receive an updated Certificate.

How Much Does It Cost?
Initial Technique Review: £35 for 30 minutes
Additional Technique Reviews: These are normally done on an ongoing basis as part of a private lesson - there is only an additional charge when your level changes and you request a new certificate. If it's a stand alone review, the charge is the same as for the Initial Technique Review.
You can ask to extend the 30 minutes session to 1 hour in order to have more specific feedback and tuition, this will cost an extra £10 (administration fee for your certificate) on top of Galit's normal private lesson fee
