advanced class begins with a warmup and stretch, continues
with drills of advanced techniques, layering, and work on
choreographies, zills, and veil, and ends with free dancing and a cool-down.
focus of Mira's advanced class is refining and perfecting Oriental dance
technique. New and challenging combinations are taught
through drills and choreography until they become a part of each
dancer's movement vocabulary. Students strive to improve strength,
endurance, grace and agility. Some choose to perform, some do not,
but all students learn to make their own dance creative and interesting
for an audience. Although most advanced class students are members of
the Aaminah Desert Dancers performing troupe, that is not a requirement.
