Days 1 & 2 we will explore the connections and differences between Baladi as a genre of popular music (like the song Tahtil Shibbak) vs. the baladi progression, explore Egyptian feminine archetypes like the bint al-balad and ma'alema and learn about the idea dellah/dellal.
Days 3 & 4 we will spend time on sagat skills, preparation & technique for awalim floorwork, balancing skills and a vintage inspired Shamadan choreography.
