Next program starts on: 28th of October 2021
Imagine being so happy and spreading so much excitement when you dance that no one dares interrupt your flow
If you are here it’s because you recognise that feeling. Me too!
You enjoy dancing more than chocolate (ok, maybe that was a bit of a stretch, but I’m sure you love dancing).
It’s also possible that you judge your dancing self harshly:
- I don’t have rhythm
- I’m not able to dance
- I have two left feet
- I don’t know how to move my hips.
I’ve heard everything: I don’t have coordination, I’m clumsy, I am hopeless at dancing etc. etc. . .
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT THE REASON YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN’T DANCE IS THAT NOBODY TAUGHT YOU HOW TO DANCE?
When you have not had many bellydance lessons, everything about the dance can feel like a big deal.
Even though it’s completely normal to not understand everything straight away, you can feel ashamed and judge yourself.
It’s true that to dance from your emotions you don’t need technique. You just have to observe how we dance as children to see that this is true.
But it’s also true that learning dance technique will give you greater freedom and confidence.
I am Zahida Palma, and I’m going to open the gates of belly dance for you with my programme – Belly Dance With The Moon: 29 Days to Start Belly Dancing.
You have tried to start belly dancing on your own, practised some video tutorials here and there, or tried copying Shakira’s choreographies.
There is something you are missing: Structure.
In Belly Dance with the Moon, you’ll understand, connect and apply the basic principles of bellydance to feel free and happier.
Yes, I said happier.
You’ll get to know your body and its relationship to space, gravity and the rhythm of movement.
You will move your whole universe.
Your dance journey will change how you present yourself to the world and how you navigate life.
You’ll get a daily dose of inspiration, a mini lesson, and my personal support when needed, so your first steps in bellydance will be smooth and easy.
How will all this happen?
✅ Every day you’ll get a WhatsApp message with a mini lesson, a reflection and an exercise and/or explanation.
✅ It’ll take you around 10 minutes a day to do the class. You’ll get my messages daily for a Moon Cycle.
✅ This is a four week programme synchronised with the Moon phases, so you’ll complete a full Moon cycle.
✅ Everything has been devised and structured with love to help you connect with the Universe that is your body.
We start a New Cycle Each Month with the Waning Moon

What will you learn each week?
🌗 Your pelvis is the centre and origin of your Universe.
In week one you will connect with the movement of your pelvis and the amazing force of gravity.
You will learn five fundamental Belly Dance movements, giving you a solid base to build on afterwards.
🌑 Your roots are in your feet. Your strength is in your legs.
You’ll reconnect with your feet and their importance in your dance practice. You will discover steps and combinations that you’ll be able to add to movement with the rest of your body as you progress through the programme..
Humans are nomadic by nature and walking step by step is what moves us, emotionally and literally.
🌓 Your arms and hands. The branches of your tree.
With a stable base and a clear centre, you will be able to develop your branches and occupy space from a different perspective.
Get in touch with your spine and discover the beauty of fluid and expressive arm and hand movements in belly dance.

What differentiates BellyDance With the Moon and other programmes or dance lessons?
In my dancing years I’ve seen offers like the following:
- Weekly lessons which need a constant commitment and a few weeks before you feel you are actually dancing.
- Intensive courses: You try and dance for three hours one day and then forget forever.
- Very well produced DVD’s, that feel very impersonal.
Even when all sorts of resources can help you to start bellydancing, Belly Dance with The Moon is the only beginners programme that walks with you daily, for 29 days, giving you daily doses of inspiration and information.
And it also includes personal support if you need it, so you can ask your questions and don’t get stuck.
Joining body movement and Moon Phases is something that I especially love doing. It brings a deep meaning and a symbolism which makes the experience of learning an unforgettable one.
Hold on, who am I to help you with your Bellydance journey?
My name is Zahida Palma and I’m a Bellydance and Body Awareness teacher and also a dancer. I’ve been teaching for a long time (over 20 years!)
I believe that beauty is a basic need, emotion is essential and movement is life.
As a native Spanish person living in England and working in Belly Dance, I embrace innovation and tradition equally – purism and fusion.
I studied Biology at uni and I love science, even though my instinctive language has always been movement in all its forms.
I firmly believe that dance, as well as being a valued cultural expression, has the power to transform lives, help people communicate their emotions and improve their well being.
My wish for you is for your path in dance to be easy and enjoyable, for dance to open doors to your inner world as much as to your outer environment. First impression is very important!
If everyone were to experience the joy of dance, life would be easier. It’s with this intention that, after 15 years of teaching belly dance, I founded DancePandemic in 2016. I wanted to spread a good pandemic!
(and after 2020, I also love an irony)
