Workshop details

 

Nesma

Neo-Andalusian– info coming soon! Baladi – info coming soon! Oum Kalhtoum – info coming soon!

Ranya

Lebanese Dance with Cane – This dance combines the earthy, folkloric style of dabke with a feminine and upbeat oriental styling. This dance is a must for work with Arab audiences but is a refreshing style for the big festival stage as well. Workshop includes background info on the style, technique and full choreography. Smaller, thinner canes are best for this style, but any cane will do. Dance with Mileya – A stage dance inspired by the streets and shores of the Egyptian city of Alexandria, this style is girly and flirty and was made popular by Mahmoud Reda and his troupe. Workshop includes background info and full choreography. Bring your melaya or a large veil!

Salah

Egyptian Traditions This workshop will provide you a wealth of knowledge on specific traditions in Egyptian culture – in dance, music, games and street culture. Some of these traditions have disappeared, but many are fully alive. Most of the workshop will be in the form of a lecture, but you will also get the chance to try some traditional dancing – authentic dance that has not been stylized for stage. This workshop is perfect for teachers and professional dancers who wish to expand their dance knowledge and share it with their students, but also for everyone interested in the rich Egyptian culture.This workshop is based on Salah Rambo’s premaster degree study in the Egyptian Academy of Arts Institute of Folklore (2016-2018).

Pille Roosi

How Does Your Body Sound? – First sound, then movement. First music, then dance … This time we will try the opposite. During the workshop we will listen to our body and find the music in the corresponding movement. The workshop will be done with live music.

Eeben (Sandra Vokk)

Juicy Drum Solo – We will learn a feminine and powerful drum solo which will be highly enjoyable for both the dancer and the audience. Suitable for mid-level dancers, but the choreography can be adjusted to different levels, either easier or more complicated.

Iris

Latin (cha-cha-cha) bellydance fusion – Oriental dance elements are intertwined with the movements of Latin-American cha-cha-cha dance. Cha-cha-cha is a 4/4, Cuban-based, smooth and elegant dance style. According to one theory, cha-cha-cha got its name from the sound the dancers’ feet make on the floor while dancing. The dance music taught in the workshop is embroidered with both Arabic dreaming vocals, as well as romantic rhythms / melodies in Latin style. The dancer’s challenge is to use the steps and elements specific to cha-cha-cha in addition to oriental dance moves. (Latin) dance shoes, jazz shoes or slippers are recommended for dancing. If you want, you can wear a Latin style skirt or a hip scarf.

Jamila

Pop Song only three special heartbeats are needed to recognize your true love. From this moment, the heart changes so that the mind can not overcome it. Come and learn a simple and romantic pop choreography with me to express your delicacy and love. Let this love be dedicated to a special person or to the dance itself.

Valentina

Show Choreography with Wings – info coming soon!
