This workshop/masterclass is designed to get a full understanding of a ‘Raqs Sharqi’ routine. Badriyah will begin the workshop with a lecture about the evolution of ‘Mejansé’ music spread over the past 100 years. The lecture will be followed by typical structures and rhythms used in the ‘Mejansé’, together with some tips for steps that can be used in each part. We will analyse 3 different Raqs Sharqi routines; hear the difference in each part of the song itself and also compare the songs used for the 3 different routines.
The second half of the workshop is dedicated to a ‘Mejansé’ choreography, newly prepared specially for this workshop.
