Sahra will be teaching a workshops on

Classic B&W Era

September 7th from 6 to 9 pm.

The “Golden Age”Classic Black and White Cinema Era was a special fusion of Egyptian star dancers with an international aesthetic of “glamour”all reinforced by the promise of plenty of work and fame in a Hollywood Film Industry centered in Cairo. Refined movement, layered on the soft strength Egyptian dance, highlighted the charismatic stars of the time!

Transition Era

September 8th from 6 to 9 pm.

After the Classic Black and White Cinema Era, Egypt had a new generation of film stars that had started in the end of the Hollywood films. But now that Egypt had taken over their films, story plots had changed and dancing no longer followed the musical theater model. Egyptian audiences wanted dancers who danced more like Egyptians. This fascinating Transition Age was highlighted temporarily by a shared vocabulary of steps and movements as Egyptian dancers tried to find themselves in this new world. As the Transition Era matured we see how the star dancers of the time bloomed into the “Modern Egyptian” Era.

Modern Egyptian Style Entrances & Traveling Steps

September 8th from 6 to 9 pm.

In the Modern Egyptian Era often the stages would be large and dancers could fill them with new traveling steps, exciting audiences and extending the character you wish to convey.  As well as the shared Modern Egyptian style, the different dance stars each had their own signature traveling steps, of which we will learn many, increasing your vocabulary of movement.  Fun, informational, energetic!
