Three days and 12 hours devoted to Egyptian Folklore with Nada! 

 

To learn more about a culture you must understand its folklore. To be a star in oriental dance, you must learn folkore!

Oriental dance has roots in Egyptian folkore. 

I't's important to understand characterization, musicality, rhythms and so much more behind each folkoric style.

During Nada el Masriya's Folkore Intensive participants will learn three styles of Egyptian folklore, technique and some choreography.

Participants will grow their understanding of the music of these styles. They also will understand the history and culture behind each style.
