Egyptian Folkloric 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!

**20 STUDENT MAX***

We will start the workshop with an introduction to the traditional Egyptian beledi, learning the technique and interpretation of beledi progression in a typically Egyptian way. This knowledge is useful for all dancers, as beledi is one of the fundamental parts of oriental dance. We will continue with a modern take on urban folk and go through the history and specifics of street shaabi dance style, and dance to a modern version of an Ahmed Adaweyya song. In the second half of the workshop, we will focus on stage folklore and make distinctions between authentic and theatrical folk dances. We will learn some typical Reda style combinations and in the remaining time dance a short saidi routine.
