The Maya Company Courses Program

  • During each year 4 sets of courses will be offered on a variety of belly dance styles and topics

  • There are options to do a 4 week course of only technique, or a 9 week (9 classes + a hafla) course of technique and choreography

  • Courses are set at specific levels of dance (new belly dancers have to attend a beginners course first)

  • Courses can be an add on for Maya members to dance more than their weekly class, or for ladies who cannot commit to a weekly class, to only do courses as and when it suits them.

  • Courses are held all over the greater Durban Area

  • At the end of each course there is a hafla (social) where the ladies on each course can perform the dances that they learnt, and the new dances for the next courses will be demonstrated.
