March 13th - May 8th
In this brand new AROnline series, Amanda Rose will go through various styles within the bellydance realm and focus on stylized technique and comprehension based on the given style. Using examples and comparison, Amanda Rose will break down technique and body mechanics to achieve a desired look for each style, contrasting with an approach for similar movements for a different style, giving you visual examples and approaches on how to create a style within your body. Each class will conclude with a combination using the studied technique with music specific to the style. Combination breakdown will include a theory explanation as to musicality use, staging, emotional and projection. Styles to be used include Modern Egyptian, Beledy, Lyrical Oriental, Folklore and more! Students will also have the opportunity to submit their own music selections for Amanda Rose to choreography with and use at the class material.
This series also offers a Personal Feedback option if you would like direct and detailed feedback from Amanda Rose on your application of class the material! For the Stylized series, the Personal Feedback packages come in 4 weeks or 8 weeks. If you select the pack of 4, you will select 4 weeks during the series when you would like to submit a video of yourself performing the combination from that week, and any technique from the class you might have questions about. If you select pack of 8, you submit a video for feedback every week. The personal feedback option has become a highly popular option with Amanda Rose Online, allowing students to get the most out of their long distance online study! This feedback will entail technique critique specifically towards the technique used in the combinations, general technique suggestions, evaluation of strengths and weakness, posture, application, timing, drills and ideas for skill development! This tool is extremely valuable, not only do you get the class, basic and advanced technique, combination application and breakdown, you also will get direct feedback on your own performance of the choreography/combination, an invaluable aspect many online classes don't offer! You can purchase additional Feedback Critiques if you wish, or if you do not choose this option and later decide you want it, you can add it on but will not get the reduced package price offered during initial registration.
This series is 8 weeks long, and will offer one new class every week for a total of 8 classes. The lessons will be made available for 1 week, giving you the opportunity to study a lesson all at once, in parts, at any time during the week, or even every day.
Classes will be released each Tuesday, starting March 13th to May 9th when the last class will be closed. All necessary information, videos, links, music, etc. will be accessible on the AmandaRoseDance.com website, in the respective 'Stylized' lesson pages.
Each lesson stays available for one week, which allows you to return to the material for reference, clarification, to repeat the drills or take the entire lesson over again. When the next week's lesson is released, the previous lesson will be closed and no longer available. Each lesson will last a duration between 50 mins to an hour and 15 mins, depending on the technique and theory of that week. This is the full time on video without repetition, but should you wish to repeat the videos for additional drill time you are more than welcome to do so at your leisure and have access to the videos for an entire week.
One of the main reasons that the classes close after a week is to keep people accountable and engaged. Many times when you feel like you can go back to something at any time, you don't actually make the effort to go back and then you never do. Giving a one week limit to each class pushes people to participate and use the material, thus keeping them engaged and taking advantage of the program. There do tend to be "Bonus Weeks" or "Surprise Weeks" where the previous classes will be opened back up for review giving you a second chance at information you may want to go over or had potentially missed. If you think about that in a standard live class you only get access to the class & teacher in that very moment, and then once it's over it's gone. This format gives you unlimited access for a week, allowing you tons of flexibility with schedule and the option to retake the classes at any point letting soak up as much as possible. In addition you always have direct access to Amanda Rose through the private Stylized Facebook Group, FB messenger and email for questions and comments throughout the series to address your needs.
If you are participating in the Personal Feedback aspect of this series you will be asked to submit your video to Amanda Rose by midnight on Monday, the last day of the week the class is open. On Tuesday the new class will be opened, the old class will be closed, and Amanda Rose will return all personal feedback on that day.
The "Stylized" series will have a designated Facebook group for the duration of the course allowing participants to interact, ask questions and work through the material together. Amanda Rose will accessible through this group, as well a through email, for clarification or any questions you might have along the way. Additionally, during the course of the intensive Private Lessons with Amanda Rose will available at a discounted rate for course participants!

As an instructor my goal is to expand the mind of each of my students, to challenge them with technique that will set them free and teach them skills to allow their own artistic dreams come to fruition. It is never my goal to create dancers that look or dance like me, but to help each student and artist accomplish their own goals by giving them tools that will make the path to their own artistic expression more tangible. I appreciate all styles within the Middle Eastern dance genre, as well as other dance forms, and my desire is to help people express themselves how they wish to be seen regardless of style. I am a firm believer in understanding the roots and origin of movement styles, especially those based in culture and society, and then building your own expression with artistic integrity based in knowledge and thoughtful approach.
