Workshop Subjects

Saturday: TEXTURES & MORPHING – In recreating the emotions, textures and communication in Middle Eastern Dance, we often get bogged down by terminologies and an almost antiseptic approach to an organic dance form. Take a few steps in another direction. Jim’s approach combines drills & isolation techniques, approaching movement vocabularies as modulating textures, rather than emphatic movements, helping us achieve subtleties in expression. We’ll explore a further concept of morphing: seamlessly moving from one texture to another and combining movement categories with an eye on personal expressions in modulation and musical expression.

Sunday AM: SASSY SAIDI CANE (RAKS ASSAYA) - Get your pop on with a Sassy Saidi Cane set of combinations for We will cover a few movements and cane techniques within the genre for incorporation into some of our most exciting movements.

Sunday PM: TRAVELING WITH ZILLS – Chewing gum and walking? How about complex tonal patterns on the finger cymbals with moving patterns! Fun, festive and challenging, we will pat our heads, rub our tummies and step bump step bump bump all while exploring tonal variations in finger cymbal rhythms and textures. An *excellent* set of professional finger cymbals are required, in addition to a basic understanding of simple finger cymbal patterns. These ain’t your momma’s finger cymbal combinations!
