There are a lot of things to know when you’re a bellydancer, no matter your level.
And now, with the explosion in online content, it can be hard to keep up, or even know what’s going on at any given time.
You know you want to practice at home since you can’t get to the studio, and figuring out where to start is overwhelming. And stressful.
So many teachers are teaching online, but will their classes work for you? Are they the kind of teacher who teaches in the way you want to learn?
You can spend an absurd amount of money trying out classes online to see what fits.
Or you can let us do the research for you, and experiment with your practice for a fraction of the cost.
But that’s not going to get your butt on the dance floor.
It’s definitely not going to help you get out of your head so that you can bring all that emotion and feeling into your moves.
You know what will though?
Curiosity. A desire to learn and improve and honor this dance form.
And those feelings? They come forward when we take a positive look at our dance.
When we realize that we’re enough and that we WANT to become more.
Because you love this dance.
You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t.
We try to check all the boxes so that when you purchase and dive in? You can tackle any part of your practice that interests you at that moment.
From improv to choreography, technique to theory, history and culture to sewing and all the other things that go with this dance? It’s all here.
And it costs less than taking even a fraction of the content included.
This bundle will help you practice the things that you can’t wait to learn more about, it will teach you more about this dance than you know now (even if you’ve been dancing forever), and it will provide you with the tools and guidance you need to create a consistent dance practice.
This year we’ve brought on more contributors! So to ensure you’re getting exactly what you’re looking for out of your practice, we’re splitting things up.
You’ll be able to choose if you want to get the dance content, the lecture content, or ALL the content when you purchase this year’s bundle.
Click either section below to see where the contributors fall & to read more about them, or continue on to see everyone who’s included this year!
There are so many things to study when you’re a bellydancer, it’s hard to find a place to start. So many resources are available to you. It’s an amazing time to be a dancer, but also overwhelming.
The Bellydance Bundle is a hand-picked compilation of top-notch guides, courses and programs designed to help you get the most out of your dance practice and level up your skills, both in front of the mirror, and behind it.
Upon purchase, you will receive a username and password to the Bundle Redemption Center. Here you will find instructions on how to access the products. As some of the products are online courses and non-downloadable, you will have to go to the contributor’s website to access them.
You may need to provide information to our contributors to create a login for their online course, but you will not be charged anything extra on their sites.
You’ll always be able to come back to Redemption page here on The Bellydance Bundle for a reminder on how to access your products once they’ve been redeemed! Keeping everything centralized for you to make it as easy as possible!
Please note: All products are ELECTRONIC. You won’t receive any physical products in the mail.
But what does that mean?
This means that once redeemed, you will have the same access permissions as if you had purchased from the contributor directly. For most of our courses, that means that once you have redeemed your product you have access to it as long as the contributor has the product available online.
However a couple of our items this year are have expiration dates, after which they will no longer be visible because they will not be available forever to anyone, not just bundle purchasers. For these items, you will receive multiple reminders about regarding the dates to make sure you take full advantage.
Items with limited availability are clearly marked in the What’s Included section with a **Has Expiration Date** beneath the description.
We do suggest going through the Bundle and signing up for all of the courses when you first receive the bundle to avoid any hassles redeeming courses later on due to expired coupon codes or website changes that make the instructions included invalid.
Should you miss a listed deadline that is not for the limited availability items, please forward a copy of your receipt to the contributor and ask to be added manually. You have up to 6 months to redeem your products, after that, it is at the contributor’s discretion.
Breaking out of the mold and learning from each other can only bring us all to new heights in our dances, allowing us more freedom to choreograph and improv as the music dictates, with less and less barriers of technique in the way.
Maybe you’ll never use that particular hip movement in your dances, but practicing it will give you the muscle strength and control to do that OTHER movement you’ve been trying to do for ages and just couldn’t get down. Or it’ll provide the sharpness, or the ability to layer a walk on your other moves as you cross genres and learn from dancers on all parts of the bellydance spectrum.
We’re all perpetual students. Always looking for new drills, better technique, more history, and a better understanding of our dance. This bundle provides you with the tools to enhance your home practice in the areas you feel it needs it most so that you can continue to develop and refine your own personal style.
Sometimes it’s good to go back to the basics. And other times you just want that thing that’s going to break your brain. You’ll find both here, along with your Goldilocks sweet spot, no matter how many years you’ve been dancing.
As a purchaser of the Bundle you’ll get access to weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly reminders to help you work through the content and keep you on track.
Even one lesson a week or a month from this bundle will have a profound impact on your dance, as you’re doing dedicated practice. You’re not just jamming around your house (which totally has value), you’re actively working on the things that will make your dance better.
Plus, since all these products are online, you’re able to work at your own pace. Filling in classes between your choreography practices for the studio, or during the week when you’re not out gigging all weekend.
Due to the extreme nature of the discount we’re providing, that’s all our contributors would allow! Each product is for sale on our individual contributor’s sites, often for a much higher price than you’ll be able to get it for here. Luckily we’ve convinced everyone to let us sell them cheaper, but only for a limited time!
No. Once the sale is over the bundle is gone for good.
Then you know the level of quality that’s in the bundle! No further discounts on the bundle can be given due to the level of discount being provided. You will receive the newest version of the product you already have plus all the other products listed.
Even if you only use a fraction of the products in the pack, we’re confident you’ll get your money’s worth!
All of the contributors to the Bellydance Bundle know first hand how hard it is to get started as a dancer, and how hard it can be to make it a full time job.
But we also know how rewarding it can be. We want to help as many people as we can down the path to becoming better dancers, better students, better teachers, and better performers.
That’s why we’ve come together to offer our products at a discounted price!
All the courses available here are also available for sale on our contributor’s individual sites and are real products. We’re not trying to trick you.
Not from us.
If you’re only interested in one of the products in the bundle, you’re welcome to head over to the contributor’s site and purchase it directly from them for full price. However here, all products come together and can not be sold separately.
Some of them. While some items from the bundle will be downloadable, others may only stream from the Contributors sites. So whether or not you can download the files will depend entirely on the format set up by the teacher for the course.
We don’t give them. Due to the nature of The Bellydance Bundle – the amount of people involved and the incredible discount given (over 80%) we do not offer any refunds.
When putting together The Bellydance Bundle, we only reach out to the best of the best in their respective fields, and we personally vet each and every product and contributor.
We can confidently say that even if you only use a fraction of what’s in the Bundle, you’ll get more than your money’s worth.
Yes, we use Stripe (a service similar to paypal) to process our on site credit card purchases. However, there is the option to pay via Paypal if that makes you more comfortable (or is just easier. I know how it goes!)
Our site is secured with an SSL certificate and our distributor works diligently to secure your credit information. Even we do not have access to see your payment information.
Now, we hardly know all the dancers not only in the US, but around the world, so we’re sure many awesome dancers with great products were not contacted this year. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get them into future bundles as online study becomes more and more commonplace within our field. Which we firmly believe will be the case over the next several years. As you can see from the number of products included this year, it’s already started to happen.
We do ask around for dancers with excellent products and try to be as inclusive as we possibly can. If you have an idea for someone who should be contacted to be part of The Bellydance Bundle this year, or in any future year please reach out to hello [at] thebellydancebundle.com and we’ll be sure to check them out! We appreciate any and all recommendations!
We use photos from a variety of sources! Some are free stock photos with appropriate credits, others are paid for. However, there’s not a lot of great bellydance stock photos, so we’re taking it a step further and have asked some dancers if they would be willing to be featured as an ad for The Bellydance Bundle. In these cases, photographers and dancers have been compensated per their requests and links are listed below.
