This class focuses on community Folkloric styles of bellydance.
Folkloric" covers all of the more "authentic" or "older" styles of dance from the communities of various regions of the middle east. Some of these these styles were made very popular by the Reda Troupe who used various folkloric styles and reproduced them for stage and they were audience friendly, although no longer "authentic" as they were changed or exaggerated for stage performances.
We will explore a variety of folk styles from Hagalla, Fellahi, Saidii, Beladi, to Debke, Shaabi, Zorba and Persian to name a few.
Study of various regions will also be covered from Turkish, Greece to Egypt, Morocco and more. Guest teachers who specialise in certain styles will be invited to present classes from time to time.
