550 kr

Tuesday April 6, 13, 20 & 27
via Zoom

18.00-19.15 CEST / UTC+2

An orientation course in Egyptian folk & folklore dance with traditional & modern folk/folklore-style music.
Technique & context of movements & music, and a choreo to modern song “Dahikina Ya Donia”.

As I’ve been talking to students in the past months, and also following various online discussions I’ve seen a need to clarify a few things about the Egyptian dance traditions. And those points have become the focus of this course:
  • The difference between folk dance, social dancing, Ghawazee styles, stage / troupe folklore styles, and the Raqs Sharqi dancers’ part-of-set folklore
  • How various movements in modern Raqs Sharqi can be traced to the folk & folklore dances
  • The importance of knowing a bit about different Egyptian teachers, to be an informed student if/when you want to study further

Length: 4 x 75 min

Level: Open continuation level

Instructor: Annah Raqs / Anna Hyberg – read more about Annah

Registration is binding. Course fees are only refunded if you can show a doctor’s signature, or if the course is cancelled by the organiser.
