May/June Update to EgyptianOmegaShaabi

Style and Technique with Omega:

May 15th – June 19th will be a six class sha’abi choreography series.  The choreography will be performed at the monthly Satchel’s Shakedown hafla on Tuesday, June 25th.  Performing is optional, but of course strongly encouraged!  Drop-ins are still welcome during this series; however, it his highly recommended that you attend all classes if you wish to perform.

The sha’abi choreography we will be learning is to the song “El Leilah (Tonight)” by Diia (available on the compilation Bellydance Superstars Vol. V).  The song is about having a good time and not letting life’s problems get you down.  The style of the dance is Egyptian bellydance mixed with Cairo-style street dancing.  The vibe is upbeat, flirty, and fun.

Please make sure you are a member of the Shambling Shimmies Students Group to get all the latest details about costuming for the performance, rehearsals, and practice videos.
