Schedule and Workshop Descriptions:
Saturday October 26, 2019
11:00 – 13:00: Dancing In The Streets, Shaabi Style!
Let’s get down, Shaabi style! Straight from the streets of Cairo, this style is high energy, in your face, with lots of personality and bold moves. In this workshop, we’ll mix old school Shaabi & Balady with new school street Shaabi moves & music. There will be a focus on technique, gestures, stylization and application. After this upbeat workshop, you’ll walk away with more information on the background of this Egyptian style and its new generation.
13:00 – 14:00: Lunch break
14:00 – 16:00: Bellydance and the Authentic Self
This workshop is designed as an exploration of dance and self in movement. Each dancer offers something unique and special, but do we allow ourselves to share our uniqueness? Are we in contact with our own inner pulse and motivation in dance? Where is our movement motivated from internally? Amanda Rose has a Masters in Dance Movement Therapy and uses DMT techniques, concepts and analysis to guide and support this explorational experience. In this workshop, dancers will use improvisational exercises meant to engage a deeper sense of connection with self and thus with their movement in dance. This class is designed to allow more room for self-exploration, confidence building, embracing one’s own choices in movement and following the inner pulse. This class will be largely improvisation based, exploring concepts externally and internally within group and solo exercises.
