Sneak peek into Dahab Festival – Bint il Balad Introduction

Being the one who spills the beans, mentions the Elephant in the Room and dares building her own path, disregarding of fashions or mainstream superficiality, isn´t always easy. You know what? I wouldn´t want it any other way.

There were many reasons that took me to Egypt, to live and perform there for almost a decade, and one of them was the dream of sharing the true richness and purpose of Oriental Dance with the world.

Doing it ❤

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

My first performance, on National Television, happened when I was just 5 years old! Since then, the stage has been my happiest, safest space, one where I can be fully myself with the certainty I´ll be understood. This is what I want for you!

This workshop will focus on Technique, Choreography, Attitude (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) and Tips for Oriental Dance Performances. I´ll share a bit of the knowledge, and experience, I gathered in 8 years of daily shows with my orchestra in Egypt and in performances all over the world.

How to build a combastic “Majance” (entrance on stage) and build a dynamic, surprising, emotional relationship between you and your audience.
Connection and heart dialogue, rather than empty sets of movements that move nothing and no one, will be explored so you can have a REALLY unforgettable experience on stage and impact your audiences where you shoul: in their soul.

Dare shining your own Star! In Dance as in Life.

Every live class is recorded and automatically sent to all the students who have subscribed so they can review and practice what was done in class; if you miss a class and have subscribed to it, you´ll also receive its recording.
Direct contact with the teacher is available and recommended.

Half of the artist´s life is spent brooding and working in the background, away from the public eye; experimenting, dreaming, doing. Being exposed, under the spotlight, is amazing (my comfort zone) but having a moon space where we can plant, water and feed ourselves, our new projects and relationships, is what gives everything meaning.  I´ve been on stage, teaching, performing and lecturing for many years as well as labouring in the background – writing and dance projects. It ´s been wonderful to have a foot here and a foot there. Balance, they say. And they´re right. The luxury of time, space, self-knowledge and enjoyment of life´s pleasures – all that, and more which I´ll keep in my privacy – feed my work. Rich art comes from a rich life. You don´t have to take my word for granted – try it out.
