Excerpt from the event’s Facebook Page:
I am very happy to announce my first official seminar/talk about Middle Eastern and North African dance. The idea came from my desire to open a sharing discussion between dancers, people which would go deeper, and where they can learn more about the cultural aspects of the dance. I had the opportunity to hold a similar event at my home where I invited my dancer friends to watch a movie about North African women, and then have a discussion about the movie. The conclusion of that was just so rich, and helped everyone with their dancing. I was thinking about it, and asked myself how I could contribute to the community ? So the “The (tea) à l’orientale ” was the answer!
‘Because we like to talk around a cup of tea,
we never let the cup get empty,
so that keeps the conversation going infinitely”.
My goal in creating this event, is to help the dancer and people willing to learn and understand more about the cultural aspects of Middle Eastern and North African dance. I would love to go deeper and share it in a warm atmosphere, so why don’t we do it around an oriental tea or coffee ?
The seminars will be held from time to time and are based on discussions around a topic (movies, articles, events,…) or around a guest speaker.
I am also so proud to announce my first guest artist. But first guess who said this:
”As a beginner dancer …..whenever I listened or danced to taped Oriental dance music……. this question kept coming to me……How can I one day dance to this beautiful music to a live band?”
