Attention NYC dancers! Nisreen will be teaching a Saidi series at the Ripley- Grier Studios ( 520 8th Ave. 16th floor), Mondays from 7:30- 9:00 p.m. October- November.
Info from Nisreen:
This eight-week course will introduce Saidi dance and cane work from the ground up. Classes will include an Egyptian technique warmup, cane technique and drills, and Mahmoud Reda-inspired combinations. We’ll discuss the cultural and performance contexts for the dance and typical characteristics of Saidi music. We’ll also work on movement techniques to capture the Saidi flavor. Finally, you’ll learn the mechanics and philosophy of twirling with confidence, ways to use the cane to frame your movements, and also a few nifty cane tricks. ūüėČ
