Workshop with Zahra Zuhair: Raqs Sharqi Facts and Fantasy
Historical Bellydance Lecture/Discussion

It’s difficult to find the truth about the origins of our beloved dance, many myths have been intertwined with facts over the centuries. Is it a birth ritual? Is it a dance of seduction? Is it a pagan goddess ritual? Is it a dance of joy and celebration? In this lecture-workshop, we will explore the roots of Oriental dance from pre-Islamic times to our modern day dance form. Please note: This is not a movement workshop.
