Me at The Place again
After a bit of chat about the nature of workshops I actually didn’t plan any choreography this month. I normally use a piece of music and find a way of delivering a piece which in itself is a great challenge but also creates a lead and follow situation. This is sometimes good. Today due to time constraints I went back to basics and really enjoyed delivering the workshop for different reasons.
We practiced the basics. Great because today attendees included a couple of beginners who benefited from going over the foundation movement of Hilal Dance.
Music was Sabr al Alam from the CD Aswan Music and Dance Ensemble. The title refers to patience I believe. Anyone good at researching or translation please get back to me on this tune.
Takeaway for today’s workshop. Give us a well chosen piece of music with a structured chorus and verse on repeat. Even a beginner can grasp and expand into self expression with the pendulum, scissor and spiral in Hilal Dance.
