Egyptian Style Technique Clinic
Saturday, October 26, 1-5p
Egyptian style belly dance, or raqs sharqi, is about more than just the moves.  Each and every technique is infused with an aesthetic that is rooted in Egyptian culture and interwoven with Egyptian music.  In this intensive workshop, Nisaa will work with you on refining fundamental techniques according to that Egyptian aesthetic.  Special attention will be paid to body position and arm and hand paths as critical elements to creating an Egyptian "accent" to your dance.
Target Audience: Middle Eastern Dance Students (Intermediate to Advanced/Professional)
Egyptian Style Improvisation Clinic
Saturday, November 16, 1-5p
Improvisation is an important and valued skill in Egyptian music and dance.  Through improvisation, the musician or dancer can fully immerse in the moment and allow feeling to flow through their performance.  However, improvisation is a skill that must be honed, and it depends on a solid understanding of Egyptian music.  In this intensive workshop, Nisaa will guide you through a range of exercises designed to improve your ability to improvise effectively to Egyptian music.  Special attention will be paid to the types of music that are appropriate for raqs sharqi performance, and how your improvisation must be tailored to fit each musical style.
​Target Audience: Middle Eastern Dance Students (Intermediate to Advanced/Professional)
