11 AM-2 PM Latifa presents Middle Eastern Roots – a Folkloric Sampler
The dance form we know as Belly Dance, whether performed on its own or blended into Fusion, came to us from the traditional dances of the Middle East. Every well-rounded dancer should know something about these dances, and Latifa will help you along this journey. Middle Eastern Roots is a folkloric dance sampler. Latifa will present three different dance styles – Sa’idi and Nubian from Egypt, and Khaleegy (Gulf Style) dance from the countries of the Arabian Peninsula. Each presentation will include geographical and cultural background, along with traditional authentic steps and movements put together into combinations or a short choreography, to help you remember them. Handouts provided. Students who learn Latifa’s Nubian dance will have a chance to perform the dance with Latifa at the hafla at Rangoli’s later that day!
6-8 PM Hafla at Rangoli’s! Here’s the Facebook event with all the info: https://www.facebook.com/events/1180572268636168/
