Egyptian Intensive for Intermediate and Advanced students

The Performance Garage

1515 Brandywine Street
Philadelphia, PA 19130

For the Intermediate and the Advanced dancer: a special topic every week! Keep in touch with the newest moves from Egypt!! Did you ever wish that you had time to go back and learn things again?  Do you feel that there is something you are missing when you see Egyptian dancers?  The Egyptian intensive is not about choreography.  It is about stopping to rethink your technique in many areas.  Over the years methods of teaching and executing traditional movements have changed.  Revisit classic moves with an eye to current trends.  And also asks the question: Are you doing the outer shell of a movement with no internal energy?
