REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
Welcome to Classic Raqs Sharqi - 8 Weeks Series Online! It's the first time that I will be offering the 8 Weeks Series Online and allow dancers from any place in the world to join. I decided to dedicate the entire series to the legendary singer Oum Khalthoum. In the past, we studied different classic singer like; Abdel Halim Hafez and Warda Aljazeira (which is my favorite singer). However, I do believe that studying and focus in one singer will nurture even more and guide your personal research. Understanding the life of Oum Khalthoum and her music will give you a taste of Egypt from the 1920's to 1970's. Let's travel through time!

Payment must be completed upon admission in the given time period to guarantee enrollment in Classic Raqs Sharqi - 8 Weeks Series Online.
The starting point of this series will be the Golden Era period, which was the vibrant mainstream of Egyptian arts and media scenes. Music and movies were popular, singers like Oum Khalthoum were listening around Egypt and the Middle East. We will be studying movements from Soheir Zaki, which was the first dancer to perform Oum Khalthoum music. Through lecture, technique and combinations we will explore the most know classic songs from Oum Khalthoum. The series will provide you knowledge and skills you won’t get in your regular classes.
