Wwww.facebook.com/NadirahBellydance EARLY BIRD: $300 if paid in full by January 1st, 2018 $350 if paid in full after January 1st, 2018 INFORMATION ABOUT JOURNEY THROUGH EGYPT 1 Journey Through Egypt JtE-1 consists of 20 in-class hours, usually spread over a Friday night, Saturday (all day, but it goes by fast. ), and Sunday until late afternoon. Workshop attendees for JtE-1 are provided with study guides, a binder, a DVD of “Journey Through Egypt” with Ya Amar. dance company, and a CD of music from the various regions of Egypt for academic use during JtE-1.
Sahra also brings a giant suitcase full of clothing from the various regions of Egypt, including Si’wa wedding clothing, Bedouin traditional clothing, Nubian homestyle and theater stage style costuming, and much more from Sa’idi, Delta, and Cairo regions. Class time is split between lectures, videos, clothing descriptions/wearing, and dancing. Journey Through Egypt 1 is an overview on the movement, posture, clothing, history, and cultural diffusion in the different regions of Egypt. Sahra’s unique perspective follows how the dance transforms from the homes of the people to the sparkling stages of Cairo. While the particulars of every dance, and every bit of culture cannot be conveyed in the 20 hours that make up JtE-1, Sahra strives to present a factual and entertaining overview of the dances of Egypt.
THE DANCES STUDIED INCLUDE Ghawazee Cairo Sa’idi Nubian Haggallah Suez Canal Fellahin Bedouin These dances are put into the context of the local culture and histories. Their transformation from homestyle to the stage is also covered in depth. For several of the dances the students break from lecture to stretch their muscles and learn the movements that can traditionally be found in these dances.
I'm not sure what the exact workshop times will be yet. This is an example of a different JTE1 schedule that I found on another event- I'll post more information as soon as I know. :) ***example: Friday 6pm to 10pm, Short break Saturday 10am to 10pm (One hour break for lunch, One hour dinner break) Sunday 11am to 5pm (One hour break for lunch)
I'm so excited for this event- I wish it wasn't still a year away.
Just FYI, I DO plan to have her back for JTE2 if enough people are interested (I know I am. )Also remember that I can help with finding you a place to stay if needed ❤
