Journey Through Egypt 2 (JtE-2) – Jacksonville, FL

Journey Through Egypt 2 (JtE-2) – Jacksonville, Florida

April 1st – 3rd, 2016

Times

Friday April 1st: 6:00 – 10:00 PM – Dinner Provided

Saturday April 2nd: 10:00 AM – 9:00 PM – Breaks for lunch and dinner (lots of good places nearby).

Sunday April 3rd: 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM – Break for lunch.

Sponsored by Tiffany Noro & held at Anais Bellydance Studio

Lights, Camera, Action!!

With these events in Jacksonville, Florida, we are dipping our toes into something new. Recording JtE-1 and -2 for an eventual online release. We’ll be changing the format of JtE slightly to accommodate these recordings, while still allowing you the most uninterrupted learning experience possible.

We’ll be conducting the lecture portion of the series in blocks, each to be followed by a Question and Answer session (which will honestly take up most of our weekend!).

You are not required to be on film in any way during this course. No one will be filmed dancing, or asking questions during the course. The only parts we’ll be filming are Sahra’s lecture portions.

Why does this matter to you?

Because we’re lowering the price to accommodate!

Prices for JtE often run around $350.00 per weekend of the course, with only a slight discount for both courses together.

However, due to the nature of the weekend, we’re lowing the price:

 

JtE-1 Only

JtE-2 Only

$175.00

$325.00

If you are also attending River City Raqs, earlier in March you are also qualified for a special discount of $50.00 off one weekend, or $75.00 off both. Proof of payment to RCR is required.

Registration Information

To register, simply Paypal your deposit to TiffanyNoro [at] gmail [dot] com and include which weekends you’d like to attend in the notes. You may pay the remainder of your balance via Paypal or check closer to the dates of the workshop.

 Deposits are non-refundable.

Information about Journey Through Egypt 2

Journey Through Egypt 2 is a continuation of the concepts discussed in Journey  Through Egypt 1. In this second 20 hour intensive students will encounter an advanced basic overview, that expands upon the ideas of JtE-1.

We aim to study and understand the movements from each dance zones taught in JtE-1 from a variety of different perspectives

THE PERSPECTIVES USED

  • Authentic non-performance “home-style” dance
  • Local indigenous professional performers
  • Regional government troupes
  • National Government theater-stage troupes: both Reda and Kowmeyya
  • The Dance as represented in Cairo’s Night Club Orientale Dance shows.

In addition to addressing movement and culture, we are introduced to many core Dance Ethnography concepts. During the process of preparation and discovery in JtE-2 we begin to form our personal interests and questions, the base of our future research and specializations and prepare for JtE 3 & 4, which take place in Egypt.

Information about Journey Through Egypt 1

Journey Through Egypt 1 is an overview on 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.
