“Dabke is a line and formation dance found in the Eastern Arabic countries known as the Levant. The countries involved are Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine and Iraq. The dance is a proud, communal dance done at most occasions and gatherings.

“The movements consist of walking, leaping, fast footwork, kicks and stomps of feet and heels. The before mentioned movements are all done in unison.”

We’ll be teaching you the basics and foundational structure of dabke. Specifically, the lebanese mejwez style of dabke!

WHO IS IT FOR?

HOW LONG IS IT?
The workshop will run for approximately 1.5 hours.

eshebellydancer@hotmail.com
Morning workshops followed by a performance at Harem in The Casbah.
306 King St W, Hamilton, ON, Canada.

Arms and Hands 11-1PM
Join Audra for a workshop designed to help you develop beautiful, fluid arms and hands.

We’ll begin with exercises for finding and mobilizing the upper back and shoulder blades, then move into elbows, wrists and fingers.

Then, with Dark Side style, Audra will begin to add details to create further depth of movement, as well as introduce emotive qualities to these movements, as we bring them into short combinations.

No previous Dark Side experience is required, though some belly dance experience is suggested. Suitable for all levels.

Technique Spotlight 1:30-3:30 -SOLD OUT!
This workshop will focus on deepening your understanding and execution of fundamental hip, chest and abdominal movements as we deconstruct the basics in this fun, sweaty workshop!

We’ll refine your technique and enhance your muscular control in stationary and moving drills, adding complexity and layers as we go. We’ll see how much we can pile on, where and how it falls apart, and talk about how we can work to be able to do it all.

No previous Dark Side experience is required, though some belly dance experience is suggested, not for absolute beginners. Suitable for all levels.

1 workshop $45 ($39.82 + tax)
2 workshops $75 ($66.37 + tax) SOLD OUT
