Commonly Asked Questions

What is the difference between workshops, courses, and classes?
- Workshops are in-person events typically 1-5 days in duration.
- Courses are multi-week programs held online through the Suhaila Salimpour Institute of Online Education.
- Classes are typically 60-90 minutes in duration and available by subscription through Salimpour School Online or available through video private lessons and licensed instructors.
Who sponsors workshops and where are they held? Some workshops are sponsored by Suhaila and held in the Bay Area. Other workshops are sponsored by other dancers and promoters and held in other locations. The event listing will provide contact information for the specific sponsor to learn more about content, travel, housing, etc.
Why take from Suhaila? Suhaila is a master instructor, choreographer, and performer. She has extensive training in belly dance and classical dance as well as many aspects of the performing arts. Read her bio in the Salimpour Legacy section and look through the website to get just a small glimpse of the things she has accomplished. Suhaila is known for value-added classes and workshops. In every workshop, students are provided a positive learning environment in which they learn to safely train at a higher level than they ever have previously. The goal is to train safely and thoroughly, promoting technique and skill development. As students grow in their process, they learn how to bring emotional perspective to their work. They learn cultural contexts, creative tools, improvisational techniques, and more.
I am new to the Salimpour formats; what workshop should I take? Welcome to the Exciting World of the Salimpour belly dance formats! Newcomers are welcome to take workshops open to all participants. We highly recommend beginning with Suhaila Level 1 Three-Day Workshops during which students receive fundamental instruction specific to Level 1 in Suhaila’s format and fundamental for Jamila Level 1.
I’m not interested in certification; can I take a workshop? Definitely! Many Salimpour School students are not interested in certification. Some are only interested in certifying to a certain level, and others have set goals to be certified in Level 5. Students with different goals, stylizations, levels, and purposes all train beside each other.
I am interested in certification; can I get tested at a workshop? Some 100 level workshops (Fundamentals 1 and 2) will offer optional certification testing for an additional fee following completion of a workshop. While content from different certification program levels will be offered at workshops, certification testing for the 200-500 levels is handled only through Institute courses.
Why do some workshops require specified certification levels? For active certification program participants, the Salimpour School offers specific workshops to help students focus intently on advanced material. To keep such workshops moving at a higher level, attendees must have previously demonstrated their knowledge of and abilities in the applicable format and nomenclature. The School uses certification testing as the method of determining whether a student has the required knowledge and/or abilities for attendance at specified workshops.
What style does Suhaila teach? No styles, yet all styles. Suhaila’s fundamental dance training is not a style; students are learning to be dancers, and a well trained dancer can perform any stylization she wishes. Cabaret dancers, tribal dancers and fusion dancers all meet in class to receive the same training . . . and. . . throughout their studies in Suhaila’s format, they learn one fundamental dance format and many stylizations. The Jamila format has a built-in stylization based on the old-time Egyptian dancers; and through her work with Bal Anat in the 1960s and 70s, Jamila’s format served as the genesis for what became known as tribal stylizations. (By 2020 the term “tribal” in this context is considered inappropriate.)
