Egyptian Dance is not about gathering movements and information – it´s about knowing HOW TO USE THOSE MOVEMENTS AND INFORMATION.
See it as a Language (because it is):
First, you learn the letters (simple movements)
Which turn into words (more elaborate movements)
Which turn into phrases (dance phrases)
Which eventually turn into a full story (a dance piece which speaks about the music and your own life).
In our NEW Online Course – “How to create my first Egyptian Dance Choreography” -, we´ll bring the words and the simple phrases together to start DANCING. Actually dancing, not just stitching empty movements to each other.
We´ll use the dance vocabulary learned in the courses “Egyptian Dance ABC & Creative Awakening” – Levels 1,2,3,4, available at Joana Saahirah´s Online Dance School, and we´ll bring that vocabulary to life with one of the most beautiful, romantic, and iconic songs of the Egyptian Music repertoire:
“Fi youm we leyla” by Warda al Jazairia.
After learning the ABC, you have to learn how to SPEAK from your heart and that´s exactly what we´ll do in this course.

1. Authentic Egyptian Dance Technique
2. An introduction to Warda al Jazairia´s music

“Fi Youm we Leyla” by Warda
4. Tips for Choreographing – some of the secrets I´ve learned from the Master “Mahmoud Reda”, the founder of the legendary “Reda Troupe”.
