MOROCCO’s ADVANCED CLASS:
Classes are structured to distill MOROCCOs 50+ years of experience with Raks Sharki into an accessible format to help you get the most out of each class, to go beyond technique – learn how to infuse the dance with Eastern energy, how to generate movement from your emotional center, how to make your expression unique, how to assimilate cultural nuances instead of copying external gestures. A better understanding of the culture can enhance the dance. KARIMA NADIRA’S Oriental Basic Technique Class is for those new to the dance vocabulary, those looking for an extra workout, or those just starting Middle Eastern Dance. Extra time is spent on mastering the basic movement vocabulary, traveling moves, and shimmies.
