Egyptian Raqs Sharqi Style!!! 


Choreography Song: El Donia El Helwa" - Amr Diab 


 ❥ Let's create magic!!  Raqs Sharqi is a modern style that has grown out of Baladi and other folkloric forms, mixed with some elements of Western dance.


I will teach you the specific qualities of this authentic style and we will move to the sounds of Amr Diab!! Amr Diab is Egyptian singer, composer and actor; acclaimed recording artist and author in most Mediterranean countries. His music is versatile and always enjoyable and has a blend of western and Egyptian rhythms. In this course we will explore the art of Egyptian dance and enjoy Arm Diab's beautiful music!! 


I think it is important to mention that the fusing of western elements was done by the Egyptians themselves which means it is still an authentic Egyptian style!

Belly dance is an individual creative expression of the core moves and core concepts and each belly dancer interprets the music in her own unique way. In one sense it could be said that there are as many belly dance styles as there are belly dancers! I say this because during this series of classes, I want you to have fun, let go, feel the music and look like YOU!
