Classical Oriental Dance with Katerina Shereen

  • DanceGardenLA 3191 Casitas Ave, Suite 112 Los Angeles, CA 90039 (map)

This in-demand instructor from the Czech Republic has become widely respected for her interpretation of Egyptian styles of bellydance, and is praised for her abilities to clearly share techniques and stylings with her students. Don't miss it, as this is almost the last stop on her tour, and space is very limited!


This workshop will start with a short introduction to cultural development in Egypt in the 20th century, which is closely linked to the development of Egyptian dance. Students will have a chance to get an insight into the specifics of Golden Era style, and learn a choreography that represents the elegance and grace of the great dancers of the black and white movies, like Samia Gamal and Taheya Karioka.

We will compare this style to the modern interpretation of Egyptian music that is typical for Dina and Randa Kamel, and then learn a modern oriental routine that represents their style. In the remaining time we will focus on the art of improvisation. Clear instructions and tips will be provided as well as an introduction into the theory of classical egyptian music, which can be very helpful for dancers who are aimimg to master this ultimate skill in oriental dance.
