Raqsat al-Hawanim, Times Three!
Saturday, July 27, 2024 | 2-5 PM US Central Time

Raqsat al-Hawanim is a dance song with deep roots and enduring popularity.  In fact, it's one of the most well-known songs for Egyptian belly dance.  It's known by a few different names (Bamba Kashar, for example).  But its playful melody is unmistakable.  In this workshop, Nisaa introduces you to the history and the versatility of this amazing piece of music.  And as she guides you through a dance exploration of three versions of the song, she illustrates the differences among three distinct styles of Egyptian belly dance.  You'll practice an Upper Egyptian ghawazi rendition, a Lower Egyptian ghawazi/urban awalim rendition, and a theatrical raqs sharqi rendition.  Join Nisaa and let this legendary song take you on a dance journey!  

Target Audience: Middle Eastern Dance Students (Intermediate to Advanced/Professional)
