More Information:

THE TURKEY – EGYPT CONNECTION: WHERE THESE DANCES CONVERGE AND WHERE THEY DIVERGE (an intensive with 10 hours of instruction, in a two day format) Explore the history, music and dance of Turkey with Artemis and Egypt with Aegela – including the history and context of Egyptian Ghawazee, Egyptian Oriental, Turkish Romany (Gypsy) and Turkish Oriental dance. These two leading artists, who have extensive experience in these countries, will share their personal archival materials with you. All days are suitable for dancers of all levels and each class can stand alone for a la carte students. In this two day, 10 hour intensive, the instructors will take you from the Ottoman Empire to modern Cairo. We will explore where the lines were drawn between these cultures, and where the lines are blurred, comparing and contrasting each style. The workshops will include 9 hours of dance instruction and 1 hour of lecture material and footage (approximately 15 minutes embedded within each workshop).
