I live overseas, how can I make it work?
2021 we offer our first online training that you can join directly from your home or studio.
To join us in Germany: So far we have had dancers from 5 continents coming to Germany for our teacher training.
If you come from
another continent you could come for 2 months straight to be here for all 3 live weekends
and use this time to 1. immerse yourself in the vast dance
scene & culture of Germany, 2. learn German, 3. do an apprenticeship or 4. find an exciting job opportunity.
Later you can do the exam at your own time from home. Since 2016 we are conducting our exams online.
The flights to Germany are too expensive, can you help?
Try these flight search engines https://kiwi.com and https://www.skyscanner.com to find the best deals. And then also check the suggested airlines directly.
Also check arriving 1-2 days earlier or leaving later to find the best price.
If flights from your city are still expensive try flying from an other airport in your country,
online travel agencies and air lines offer free public transport rides to the airport.
Do you organize accommodation?
We help you to find your perfect accommodation. Through our secret Facebook
group you will be able to connect with our Essence community to share accommodation & costs. We mostly
go with Airbnb, Hotels and Hostels and always find good solutions for everybody. Sometimes girls from
our Berlin Essence community have a room or a couch to share.
How does the online exam work?
You record a 60 minutes Essence class that you teach to a group of minimum 2 students and send us the
recording (mail or upload). Your trainer reviews and grades your performance and then contacts you
for your personal video call coaching.
What does it mean that I can redeem my Essence Unlimited membership?
As an Essence Unlimited member you will get your money back, here's the math: Essence teatcher
training fee – your Essence Unlimited Membership fee = Your special price.
I really want to do the training but I don't have much dance experience, can I join anyway?
From our experience since 2006 a strong desire to learn may be a way better starting point than 10 years
of belly dance experience with mediocre teachers. Essence is a distinct method and an individual journey
so dancers of all levels benefit greatly from our method.
I don't want to teach, but to become a professional dancer, will the teacher training help?
Our Essence training will give you a strong fundamental technique and tools to train yourself
effectively to become a powerful dancer, performer and artist. We will also help you to dream big and build your
You will learn all the tools you need to achieve your goals as well as deep insights into the entertainment
industry. After the your graduation you will be part of our amazing community where you will receive
guidance from Coco and all the other professional dancers.
I'd love to talk to you personally, can I call?
Send us an email with your phone number & availability and will call you :)
Do you love to dance and want to inspire other women?
Then join our international community of excellent dance teachers and start teaching your own Essence of Bellydance classes.
You can do it!
