Remember when we used to go to (real) classes and learn to dance (in real time and space) and that was all there was to learning to dance? Then video came along which was a great learning aid, and now there is streaming – downloading classes from a teacher’s sites. While still a young technology, and controversial at that, it is undeniably a fabulous way to get what you want from your favorite teacher, master or super-star dancer without the cost or hassle of going far away. Ansuya is one such super-star instructor. She has begun streaming classes and is making a huge impact on her following by making it possible for everyone to enjoy her brilliant teaching and wealth of knowledge from anywhere on the planet! In the following article, she will share her experience as a teacher streaming to the world! Enjoy! ~ The Team at DanceandMusicExchange.com. – A Dancer and Musicians Online Shopping Mall.
Making Cyberspace Sexy!
How Do Online Bellydance Classes at Ansuya.com Work?
“Online Bellydance Classes at Ansuya.com Are the Wave of The Future, But Your Time is Now!” That’s my slogan and I’m sticking to it! As a former full blown anti-techy that used to resist even using the TV remote, I’ve never felt sexier about technology than I do now. I’ve officially transformed myself into a savvy Online Bellydance Class producer, instructor, camera operator, editor, marketer, and overall pioneer of this industry enhancing medium. I now insist to my Bellydance students that getting techy is getting sexy, so why not let yourself start taking Online Bellydance Classes now? If I’ve sparked your interest, your first question will likely be, “Well, how does it all work?” I’m here to tell you! Every online Bellydance teacher has a different approach to content, pricing, social interaction, and live interaction with members. Here’s my orientation as to how Online Bellydance Classes at Ansuya.com work.
I excitedly upload five new pre-recorded videos per month for you. This includes a Focus Class that is great if you are a beginner who wants to start simply and great if you are an advanced dancer who wants to hone your technique; a Workout Class that is awesome if you are an intermediate student who wants to keep up with your Bellydance fitness level with challenging drills; a Choreography Class that spans two videos that is great if you are an advanced to professional level dancer who want to learn full blown performance pieces; and an Entertainment Feature that covers all kinds of extra fun including performances, exotic make up tips, dazzling costuming tips, tips for creating sacred spaces, fun behind the scenes footage, audition coaching, and interesting interviews.
With each new month, five new videos are added so there is an ever-growing archive of videos. These pre-recorded videos are streaming which means you do not have to download them to your computer. They are stored on our server and are available to you as a member with unlimited access according to your own schedule without bogging down your hard drive.
I cover ever aspect of Belly dance in the classes including Cabaret, Tribal, and Egyptian styles; Bellydance fusion with Indian, African, Spanish, Gypsy, Hip Hop and Burlesque flavors; Belly dancing with props including veils, finger cymbals, swords, fans, fan veils, Isis wings, and candles; technique in floor work and drum solo; and theory in emotional expression, musical interpretation and improvisation.

I love to connect with my members through Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and my Blog Posts. As a new member, you are invited to email me a photo of yourself in costume or class wear to be added to the Ansuya.com Members Photo Album on my Facebook page which introduces you to fellow members. You are also invited to email me a Youtube link to a video clip of yourself dancing to be added to the Ansuya.com Members Playlist on my Youtube channel so I can get to know your dancing better. You are encouraged to “like” my Facebook page and “follow me” on Twitter for extra tips and daily fun. You are also encouraged to email me your class questions, which I answer in a segment called “Ask Ansuya” which periodically appears at the end of class videos. Each month you will receive a newsletter announcing the brand new class postings in a Youtube video preview, and linking you to my new blog posts.
Each month I have a live Bellychat which brings together Ansuya.com members for a real time conversation using Skype’s Instant Messaging Service. This is a fun typing frenzy covering the hot topics that Belly dancers love to discuss. It’s typing only, so you can attend in your PJ’s, giving Bellychat’s a real slumber party feel.
Bellyskypes are also available with separate pricing. Bellyskypes are live, real time classes over the Internet using Skype’s video conferencing service. You can take these classes on a single class drop in basis, you can attend a Bellyskype Workshop, or you can become Ansuya Bellydance Certified through private Bellyskypes with me. Extensive personal attention and feedback is available to you in any of the Bellyskype settings as classes and workshops are limited to only four total students, each of you Skyping in from anywhere in the world, and if you take Private Bellyskypes you will have a discounted option for video critiques for even more personal coaching.
Never before has so much continuous interaction between student and teacher been available from anywhere in the world at any time at such affordable prices. Now that’s sexy! So, “Online Bellydance Classes at Ansuya.com are the Wave of the Future, But Your Time is Now!” ~ Ansuya
