Information about Journey Through Egypt 1

Journey Through Egypt 1 is an overview of the movement, posture, clothing, history, and cultural diffusion in the different regions of Egypt. Sahra’s unique perspective follows how the dance transforms from the homes of the people to the sparkling stages of Cairo.

While the particulars of every dance and every bit of culture cannot be conveyed in the 20 hours that make up JtE-1, Sahra strives to present a factual and entertaining overview of the dances of Egypt.

THE DANCES STUDIED INCLUDE

Ghawazee

Cairo

Sa’idi

Nubian

Haggallah

Suez Canal

Fellahin

Bedouin

These dances are put into the context of the local culture and histories. Their transformation from homestyle to the stage is also covered in depth. For several of the dances, the students break from lecture to stretch their muscles and learn the movements that can traditionally be found in these dances.
