Saturday: “Classic Egyptian Song”
In 3 hours you will learn a complete choreography to the Egyptian Classic song - “Enta Mien” performed by Safaa Farid. This is a beautiful classic Oriental song for Egyptian style Belly Dance. Full of Egyptian feeling and complete with drum breaks, instrumental solos, and of course the wonderful vocal stylings of Safaa Farid- this classic Egyptian song is a perfect piece to perform Raqs Sharqi to. In this choreography- there are many hand gestures and body movements that you will learn that translate the music and the words into body language and captures the essence of Egyptian Style Belly Dance. Mohamed will break down the choreography into sections and teach the technique behind it. Come and enjoy this inspirational workshop.

Sunday: “Shaabi – Cairo Street Danding”
Shaabi” is a name for style of living, a style of dance, and a style of music. In Egyptian Arabic, the word Shaabirefers to the poorer, lower standard sections of the city of Cairo. The closest English equivalent to the word Shaabi would be "ghetto." The name came to characterize the style of music enjoyed in such neighborhoods. You will usually hear Shaabi music played everywhere throughout Cairo- in taxis and buses, in your favorite falafel shops, and lively street weddings. This style of music is somewhat rougher and more playful than the rest of Egyptian pop music. Truly, Shaabi is the music of the Egyptian people.
Mohamed will teach a funny yet meaningful choreography that will have you coming back for more.   Mohamed will breakdown the technique and explain all of the hand gestures in the choreography.  He will also provide a translation of the song lyrics.
