...A unique experiential dance study opportunity..
The past workshops have been well attended and with wonderful feedback.
Not only do the dancers learn a lot but they have a great timel.
...This year's song will be Tamr Henna....
Easy to digest with plenty of repetition and diversity, accents, tempo and mood changes
....a rhythmic song great for playing zills....
(optional for those who are comfortable with basic zill technique)
.....Zills will NOT be mandatory!
With guidance from the musicians and Rafi'ahs expertise gained through many years of dancing to live music, learn to hear, feel, and express the changing rhythms, tempos and moods of this song.
Plus--learn about the instruments
--explore entrances and exits
--switch seamlessly between instrumentation & percussion
--learn what type of moves to use when and where.
You will come away with a deeper understanding of Middle Eastern music and how to dance to it for improvisational dance as well as choreographies.
" Rafiah translates music virtually to perfection by molding to the music, feeling each phrase and combining the melodies and sharpness of the percussion. She conveys the music deeply. Her ability to execute shape, dynamic hip isolations and then finish with a look of ultimate lightness and liquidity is a visual treat."
