Information About this Workshop
Classic Advanced Reda Combinations – June 17th 2:00 – 5:00 pm
Mahmoud Reda is the pioneer in Egyptian Folkloric Theatrical dance, crafting his own repertoire of movement and steps from a variety of international media styles to be compatible with Egyptian indigenous dance.
His style has become a genre in itself, an interesting base for Folkloric movement. Very stylized, often a mental challenge, not based on Orientale Dance but beautifully applied to it, Reda Technique needs to be addressed in today’s Egyptian Dance.
In this Advanced Reda Combinations workshop, we will go farther with Reda combinations than ever before! Final videotaping of each combo allowed.
Workshop is recommended for advanced dancers.
