Tools for Taqsim with Leilah Moon

02:00 pm - 03/31/2018

@ Sahara Dance

4433 Wisconsin Ave NW
Washington DC  20016



In these solo improvised sections in classical Arabic music, the dancer uses slow, fluid transitions to melt and swell into the movements of a single instrument like the accordion, oud, or qanoon, or vocal improvisations known as mawal. Leilah’s strong abdominal techniques, attention to pauses and breath, and knowledge of dance aesthetic will assist you in creating luscious, emotional movement that accentuates the music. Suggestions and exercises for how and when to approach taqsim in the context of the music will also be explored. Is the dancer making the music play or is the music making the dancer move? Make your movement so fluid that your audience can’t tell the difference with these tools and tricks!

At least one year of belly dance experience recommended.
