SAIDI EVOLUTION – with Samantha Burnstein

From the Tradition to the Stage

Hybrid Workshop – Saturday January 14 2023

2pm to 5:30pm on Zoom + Studio Caravane in Montreal

Saidi dance is an essential part of any oriental dancers repertoire and often the first folkloric style learnt.

In this 3.5h workshop we will explore the saidi / assaya dance through its evolution from tahtib, into dance companies, through to solo dancer in both Egyptian and Lebanese styling.

Through this process we can breakdown the differences in technique, styling, and interpretation for each stage along with music and dress. 

Please bring cane/assaya, and allow enough space for its use.

$90CAD for the 3.5hours of workshops

Recording also available
