C.O.D.E. - Certified Oriental Dance Education
What is C.O.D.E.?
Be a C.O.D.E. breaker with our officially recognized certified oriental dance education. Yes, we freely admit it - it takes time and work to crack this CODE and learn the secrets of Oriental dance but you can do it. When you've done it, you will really have achieved something - you will have a certificate to prove it and our good name/state approved to back you up!. And you will have trained with accredited and internationally famous teachers!
Ongoing education - learn as much as you want - no obligation to take exams!
All our workshops & classes are accredited within the C.O.D.E. system and can be booked separately and independently of one another. We can give written proof of any workshops taken and all can be considered as qualified stages in your oriental dance education - even if you never take a formal exam.
How long does the education take?
CODE Intensive weeklong / 4 Modules each 30 WS hours
CODE Folklore/Traditional (CFo) Weeklong Nov 28 – Dec 4, 2017 (Festival)
CODE Fusion & Props incl. Tribal (CFu) Weeklong Nov 28 – Dec 4, 2017 (Festival)

Its entirely up to you how far you take your dance education, when and where you take accredited workshops and which themes and subjects you choose to study. You can easily catch up on any workshops you have missed and you can book workshops as far apart - or as close together - as it suits you. So long as you have taken 200 workshop hours in total, you qualify for your full CODE certificate to show that you have completed your dance education.
You can take a more formal exam with us if you wish and get your certification - exams are on request and the requirements for entry are that you have completed 30 WS hours for each Module (Code intensive/short) including the main topics of each Modul below or 200 workshop hours (CODE longterm), including the following compulsory classes:
Technique 1ab and 2ab (CCL), Rhythm 1ab and 2ab (CRh), Choreography 1 and 2, Drum and Finger cymbal 1 and 2 (CRh), Folklore (CFo), Shimmys (CCL), different Dance styles, Fusion (CFu) (eg spanish/arabic fusion), Bollywood, Persian, Isis Wings and Veil, Pharaonic, Tribal, Sword, Gypsy, Tambourine; Improvisation, Dance Teaching and Methodology, Health and Safety, Warm Up etc.
Exam fees are 50 Euros per exam in groups or 100 Euros for single - please note, however, that our exams are non profit- making and only your success matters to us - we will not advise you to take the exam before you are fully prepared and only when you have a good chanc to pass the exam.

All Workshops of our festival teachers are accredited for CODE by prior arrangement
Our festival teachers are personally chosen by the organisers and are recognised as top class teachers and performers in their chosen areas.
CODE is open to anyone who wishes to further their education in oriental dance and/or to take the formal exam. Already practising dance teachers as well as students are welcome to enter for the dance education or the exam. For those wishing to proceed to certificate level we do however, recommend good prior knowledge of oriental dance - for those with lower level of prior knowledge of dance, the probable duration of the dance education through to certificate level can be discussed in advance with the course organisers. We recommend workshops and ongoing courses held in the centre for oriental dance for all C.O.D.E participants.
The aim of our dance education is to produce competent and excellent teachers in oriental dance, to keep up and improve standards and to give more people a chance to learn this dance. We are particularly pleased to welcome existing teachers and to develop and support them within the C.O.D.E framework
In order to keep costs down for you, only the workshop hours count towards CODE For the main subjects such as technique, shimmies, rhythm you can also obtain an educational DVD and train in your own time using these materials - although we do recommend developing your own study plan
Please take note of the following festival and Workshop times which are accredited for C.O.D.E
