~ intermediate to advanced ~
I’d like this to be an organic, student-led experience. This means I will look to students for ideas about what aspect of the dance we should focus on and for inspiration on choreographies. I will continue to bring my interests to the class as well. My intention with this class is to build a community and get geared up for some performances! Past classes have focused on sha'abi, orientale, stylizations of Samia Gamal, expression, stage technique, folkloric dances, zills, floorwork, and work with props (veil, 4-yard veil, sword, fan veils, etc). Non-performing members welcome.

New session: July 11 to Sep 5. Thursdays 6 to 7 pm. $90.00
