Ees'Bella World Dance Teacher Training is finally here!!!

We recommend you begin in Intro though you may start with Phase 1 if you choose.

  There are 8 total Phases (levels) of training however before any Teacher Training Arikah recommends you learn the foundations, history, and genres of our dance through this Introduction to Belly and World Dance Teacher Training. Introduction to World Dance is encouraged but students may begin Phase 1 (*when offered or available) which is both improvisational choreography and choreography. Each phase will take a lot of hard work and spending intensive hours in the studio with Arikah and company.  Certificates are good for 1 year with a $100 renewal fee a year and an upload for Arikah to view to make sure you are in fact teaching the EBWD format.  We encourage all dancers from all genres.  Having any belly dance background is helpful but not required.  A manual is required of purchase to be looked over before the training.  Please send an inquiry to and/or text/call Arikah for more information of upcoming dates and trainings.  At the end of your training a hafla may take place with an award ceremony.  We encourage you to spread the EBWD love across the globe with this wonderful format that will polish up all your skills whether you are from an ATS(r), ITS, Fusion, or Classical background.  If you have no experience in Dance this is a good place to begin in edition to your weekly dance class. You may send in videos and footage to keep Arikah updated that you're in fact teaching and using the material. The next scheduled training is the first weekend in October 2023. See below.

Please bring a snack, manual, and a notebook. Water and Hot Tea provided.
