FEMINICITY BELLYDANCE TEACHER TRAINING INTENSIVE​ LEVEL 1



Shemiran Ibrahim’s
BELLY DANCING FROM THE HEART METHOD

Teaching Beginners and Continuing Beginners is the most sensitive and difficult level of teaching as they are the most challenging students to retain that you will ever have as a teacher of Bellydance! These are the easiest students to lose due to a myriad of reasons including:​

• A lack of correct curriculum for this level. Without a curriculum that works, losing this level of student due to their overwhelm, frustration and lack of self belief is a huge problem for most dance schools as it greatly effects business due to low student retention.​

• Not being trained in the craft of teaching, which effects this level of student more than other,  and exacerbates its challenges.​

• Lack of teacher confidence; as you start teaching especially, your lack of knowledge translates to lack of confidence, and this shows up in the classroom.​

• Being new to teaching brings up emotional challenges such as difficulties around claiming leadership and embodying loving-authority, which is very important in teaching, in addition to needed to is to teach, boundary issues, self worth/esteem issues and so much more.

• The need to learn business skills for success and heart based marketing.

These are only a few of the areas Belly Dance teachers need to be great at !

In this 2-Day Intensive Training Workshop plus Home-Study Program, you will acquire all these skills, from the best in the industry! I have hand picked the Belly Dancing from the Heart Method to partner with because of its in-depth material and content.  Shemiran Ibrahim is one of the world’s most renowned Teacher Training Certifiers and business coaches. Her method “Belly Dancing from the Heart Method” is the most comprehensive course you will ever get in Belly Dance, it’s been the tool I used that helped structure the flow of my classes and added clarity to my teaching. ​

As a partner of the Belly Dancing from the Heart Method, my Teacher Training Intensive participants are the only ones that can redeem this excellent discounted price for the full package. 
​-Joany

Joany Gauvreau is a teacher with a huge heart, an innate teacher spirit, and a clear intelligence for teaching. Teaching Bellydance well is not a gift every teacher has inherently. Many performers attempt to teach, but can fall short on one or more of the essential skills needed for great teaching. Great teachers love their students, really love them. They rejoice in their smallest victories. They care deeply about both the technical and emotional experience the student has in their classes. They teach technique with a great eye for detail, without boring their students nor overwhelming them. They know how to pick the energy up when it slumps in class, and bring joy to the space. They hold space with respect to both themselves and their students. Joany has all of these in spades.
She also has a deep understanding of my Belly Dancing from the Heart Method; it’s methodology, what it gifts to the students, and how it empowers teachers. Her Certification Intensives have been lovingly honed and crafted over hours upon hours of coaching sessions together; she is now Certified to Teacher Train, and will be a great asset to the Bellydance community, not only in Canada and the United States, but around the world, where she plans to travel to spread the joy and love of our blessed, empowering, healing, joy giving and liberating dance – our beloved Bellydancing!
All my love Joany, and blessings on your journey into Teacher Training!

The Belly Dance Teacher Intensive Program has been inspiring and has solidified many aspects of the Belly Dance business and dance movements. I haven’t been in a class setting for quite some time and so this training was invigorating as well. I also appreciated the additional tools and material presented in class for future practice. Thank you Joany.​

Hello everyone 🙂
I apologize in advance for this long post, but I’d like to share my story with you because it may resonate with some and perhaps help them. My family and some of my friends know about what I will open up about, but for some of you, this revelation may be a surprise.

I grew up loving music and dance, but didn’t have the opportunity to take lessons. That all changed
the day a co-worker invited me to meet Joany Gauvreau and take a dance class. It was a belly dance class! Much to my surprise, I was hooked from the start… It was the most fun I had ever had exercising (which at the time, was not high on my list of priorities). As a busy wife and working mother of two, I started dancing to get some much-needed “me” time, as
a fun way to get moving and socialize with other moms. I quickly realized that the music and movements made me happy and allowed me to get in touch with my feminine side again. 
Dance also improved my physical fitness, increased my self-confidence, and reduced my stress. In 2007, I was injured in a car accident and, as a result of the injuries I sustained, I live with chronic pain on a daily basis. Doctors and therapists involved in my care have always encouraged me to keep dancing due to its many benefits to my physical and mental health. Despite having to juggle my duties at home with a demanding career as a healthcare professional, I truly believe that belly dance
has not only kept me mobile and made me stronger, but it has also allowed me to continue to enjoy life. … And what girl doesn’t like to wear sparkly costumes? … Lol.

I’m so thankful that I met Joany and that she has been such an important part of my life for over 12 years. Now she will embark on own journey, traveling the world, teaching and performing. I wish her well and know that she will continue to be a mentor and friend. This leads me to why I’m posting this. I believe it’s now my time to give back to Joany and the art of belly dance. When she first saw the heart and spirit of a teacher in me years ago, the time was not right for me to answer that call. Now that I have more experience and am on my own journey to improve myself… mind, body and spirit, I feel it is time to unveil and be my truest self to help others discover the many benefits of belly dance.​​​​​​​
