Egyptian Technique and Combinations

Saturday, May 16th 2020
10:00-12:00

Luna will teach some typical Egyptian-styled technique, as well as some of her signature moves that she developed over the course of her dance career in Cairo.


She will explain how they differ in emphasis, genesis, and meaning to American-flavored movements, as well as demonstrate how to string them together into unique, unpredictable combinations.


Luna will also break down the movements into "families" according to their qualities and explain how to use that categorization to develop your own unique technique.

Mawwal Workshop

Saturday, May 16th 2020
1:00-3:00

Most Arabic songs start with or contain a mawwal, improvised singing. This is often the most beautiful part of the song, but also the most difficult to dance to because it lacks melody and rhythm, and because the lyrics are in Arabic.


In this workshop, Luna will show you how to tackle dancing to three different types of mawwals, using the lyrics, singer’s voice, and emotions as your guide for a truly convincing, Egyptian performance.

Improvisation

Sunday, May 17th 2019
10:00-12:00


Learn the fundamentals of improvising. In this workshop, you will navigate through a piece of music while planning a course of action on the spot.


Luna will demonstrate how to listen to a piece of music, establish a movement theme, and use your short term memory to create a performance that is consistent and authentic.


Luna will also explain how to keep your improvisation exciting without doing every move you know.
