Basic Sa`iidi Cane(raqs `assaya) or cane dance is a popular folk form in Egypt. It involves dancing while manipulating a cane. It comes from as sa`iid - the highlands of Egypt.
"Ya Bouy" introduces the concepts of the dance without requiring excessive skill with the cane. The hardest thing is four forward twirls!
This class intends to both give a taste of folkloric cane while extending your ability to "just walk" - in a variety of patterns and tempos.
Suitable for people with basic skills (eg hip and shoulder shimmies) or those more advanced who would like to try a Mo-style choreography.
The Nubian class is priced at $70 for the full course (due on first day)
or may be taken as part of the NextSteps classes.
Drop in at $15/class available if room.
