    This master class will emphasize in the vivacious and strong movements that distinguish the Lebanese Style.

    1:30p-4:00p Shimmy Massacre
    The shimmy could be one of the most challenging movements in Oriental dance. Even though we can define the shimmy as that quick vibration in the dancer’s hips there are many ways you can use it. During this master class we will work with what type of shimmies you should be executing depending on the music.
