Egyptian: KELLY KAHINA
Classical Egyptian Dance, exploring the music body connection.
In this class we will be exploring the connection between the music and the dancer. We will look at how that connection has shaped how we dance and how the audience sees the music. We will be working on feeling that connection to the music using the expressiveness of classic Middle Eastern music. We will work to enhance the feeling that we put into our dance today to help our audience better understand the music that they are listening to. This class will focus on personal skills to help express the music.
