Egyptian Technique
Saturday September 18, 9:30 AM – 12 PM
Every dancer should have their own way of moving, one that is particular to their own body and style. Leila has a unique style that blends classic raqs sharqi with modern Egyptian style. She will break down her technique to include posture, weight change, and interpretation of the music, while encouraging each dancer to find their own personal stylization.
Techniques of Improvisation
Saturday September 18, 1 – 3:30 PM
Know your music first from your head and then from your heart, and then let the movement flow out though you. Leila will offer insights into how to improvise on stage to Egyptian music while keeping your audience engaged and still feeding your soul.
