In this course we will explore modern musical genres of Egyptian music through dance and study! In each week/part we will focus on a different genre of modern Egyptian music (classic shaabi, modern shaabi, Egyptian pop, and mahraganat). We will learn and drill some fun steps and then take a current hit song, learn some of its lyrics including key words that you will hear repeated in many songs, and learn a few combos/mini choreo to it. Included with the instructional videos will be notes explaining the style and links to resources including music, dance videos, articles, documentaries, and more so you can deepen your personal study. This series will be great for drilling technique, getting more comfortable moving with different musical styles, and learning some fun and interesting details about the evolution of current Egyptian music and social dance!
Videos will be released once a week on Monday’s starting from March 23 until April 13. This course will remain available after its air dates so feel free to sign up any time. The price of sign up includes all 4 weeks/parts.
