52 Lesson Plans & How to Create 5,000 More

In this workshop I’m going to share with you 52 lesson plans that you can use for your beginner or mixed ability level classes for a full year.

My aim is to help you if you are new to teaching belly dance, or if you struggle to come up with a formal plan for each of your lessons.

In the spirit of “Teach a man to fish” – I will also be sharing with you the formula that I use to create lesson plans, so that you can go forward with lesson plans that better suit your students or your teaching style, lessons for more advanced students and lessons that suit your own dance philosophy.

There are two ways you can use this workshop:

  • You may want to write your own lesson plans and use the 52 lessons as examples of the formula.

  • Or you may just want to teach the pre-set lessons, and use the formula as a better way to understand how the 52 lessons were developed.

In This Episode

If you’re a teacher, then you’re familiar with lesson plans, in theory, if not in practice.

And as a student of bellydance? You may not have ever given it a second thought.

But there’s a lot of value to be gained from planning out your practice. Namely, you know what you’re doing when you get to the dance floor.

Combine that with a goal and you have all the makings of success.

Sara Shrapnell joins me today to talk about lesson plans and how you can apply them both as a teacher, and as a student to your dancing.

But in addition to that, we also go off on a side note about performance and practice that you’re not going to want to miss.
