Enjoy this highly informative workshop and gain understanding of Middle Eastern music structure, while working on proper alignment, accents and undulations. The workshop will start with a comprehensive warm up to build your core strength and flexibility with emphasis on quality movement execution, balance and whole body awareness. Choreography and improvisational exercises will be taught. You will learn to travel with isolations, layering and incorporate entrance moves into your dance. Emphasis will be made on emotional expression and musical interpretation, which will help develop powerful stage presence in the future. Come away with tools for your personal dance practice and better understanding of this beautiful dance and its culture.
After the intensive, you are invited to join others in an exclusive Labor Day Party across the 6 ballrooms of the the same hotel as the intensive, the Westin Alexandria! The parties last until 4:00 PM.
