The Salisbury Centre has found me a slot to teach regular weekly classes in Egyptian Dance next term.
Here are the details:
Every Thursday, 8.00-9.15pm
Starting on 22 April 2010
At The Salisbury Centre, 2 Salisbury Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5AB
Cost is £60 for the term of 10 classes, or £50 for concessions
I will be teaching the "Dances of Egypt". Each week we will introduce the music and dance associated with different styles of Egyptian Dance. It's a great way of learning about the background, history and development of this rich art form, whilst studying the different moves and technique, and exploring self expression to accompany the music.
The course will cover Sha'abi - the traditional Egyptian folk dance originating from Upper Egypt, Baladi - an expressive interpretation of "Egyptian Jazz", and Classical - a contemporary style with ancient roots. We will also explore the energies of the male and female style of dance, and if time allows the contemporary form inspired by Sufi tradition.
The course will be mixed level. It is suitable for Absolute Beginners and Improvers who want to revisit the basics and develop a deeper understanding of Egyptian dance would also be very welcome. This was a very popular format when I taught my Summer series of classes in 2009. You can read the testimonials on my website to hear what my students had to say.
The Salisbury Centre is the longest established holistic education centre in Edinburgh. It is based in a Georgian House in the Southside of Edinburgh and set within beautiful organic gardens. Here is the streetview. The studio is in fact an amazing first floor drawing room, with a clean floor and beautiful views. If you haven't been there before, I would thoroughly recommend going along to visit the Centre. You can sit in the garden, help yourself to tea and coffee, and explore the range of things on offer including meditation, yoga, pottery, therapies and treatments, and a whole range of different classes and workshops.
