The rudiments of free-style dancing are also covered. A dancer will usually move on to the next level after mastering Longa and Baladi rhythms on zils.

<h5>Intermediate/Advanced Belly Dance</h5>
This is a course for the dancer who has mastered the Beginning and Beyond Beginning curriculum, has some facility with zils, and is ready to move on to something more challenging. Since Annette is trained in freestyle, or improvisational dance, the emphasis here is on increasing one’s vocabulary of steps and learning to interpret musical phrasing through dance with the goal of dancing as a soloist, whether for public performance or personal edification.

This class explores more complex floor moves, more intricate zil patterns, beginning cane dance, and veil work. Would you like to explore more floor? Wail with a veil? Then this is the class for you!
