      Shahrzad Workshops and Show

      June 25-26

      Most of Shahrzad’s technique and choreography is influenced from her training in Egypt where she has been mentored by some of the top dancers in the world. She has traveled extensively to do in depth study about the music, dance, and cultural traditions surrounding both so that she can give students a deeper knowledge of the roots of belly dance as well as its modern uses. Inspired by her interest in teaching, Shahrzad underwent a 2 year Pilates apprenticeship. Now as a fully certified Pilates instructor with extensive training in anatomy and movement she is able to bring a new level of education to her students by breaking down technique in detailed terms right down to what each muscle of the body is doing.

      Show tickets are $20 and can be purchased here:

      Classical Choreography / Dance with feeling

      The classical Egyptian songs of artists such as Om Kalthoum are some of the most difficult to dance to due to their lush composition and deep emotional meaning. Shahrzad will use one of her detailed choreographies to a classical Egyptian song to show students how to interpret the rhythm, melody, and meaning of the music with their bodies.
