Brussels, Belgium- Choreography Workshop

Entrance Choreography to 'Tales of the Sahara'

Years spent on stage every night throughout the Middle-East have converted Sabriye into a very seasoned professionnal dancer. She knows the dancers' secrets to impressing their audience as soon as their megance, i.e. their entrance piece, starts playing.
Equippend with your veil, a dancer's essential accessory for an entrance choreography, come and learn a sassy modern entrance piece with splashes of khaleeji and saidi folkloric moves to reflect the music in all its variations and subtilities.  Music off of Bellydance Superstars vol. 3. 
Level: intermediate-advanced. 
Experience in Salimpour format highly recommended.

Nick-named the mother of Belly Dance in America, Jamila's technique sowed the seeds for both American Cabaret and Tribal/Tribal Fusion.  She was the first teacher to break down, and name the steps of what she called "la danse orientale". Have you heard of the 3/4 shimmy, mayas or figure eights? It is thanks to Jamila Salimpour that this terminology exists, and even Egyptian teachers use it. Jamila is also know for her finger cymbal teaching method based on numbers, and for the troupe and show that she created - Bal Anat - which you may have had the chance to see perform in Brussels in April 2018 or October 2016. www.maelledanse.com
