WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS
American Cabaret: The dance that made America fall in love with belly dance is coming back! Comprised of Middle East-ern, Pan-Arabic and Turkish techniques, the style incorporates a 5 to 8 part show, props, floor work and audience participation.

Improvisation Skills: Historically, Oriental dancers never used choreography. The best planned choreographs can go awry when dancing to live music, the DJ plays the wrong song, the audience is not who you expected. Once these skills are mastered, you will thrive in any performance situation.

Taksim, Beautiful Arms & Hands: Different instruments evoke different moves. Learn to hear the music, to interpret it artistically and convincingly, and create beautiful lines and carve shapes in space with your arms and hands.

Zils & Spoons: For “zil virgins” or accomplished musicians. Learn the 4 most important sounds you can make with finger cymbals, and then experience the ease of playing wooden spoons used by street performers of the Ottoman Empire.
