A timeless movement that prevailed with the evolution of art and among the dancers of the golden era (Tahia Karioka, Samia Gamal, and Nadia Gamal to name a few) to today’s biggest names of oriental dance. A minimum of 16 stylistic arabesque movements are explained with emphasis on correct execution and historical reference, leading into the most modern technique and execution. Simon will explain his process for creating his own series of arabesques appropriately selected for each genre of music (classical oriental, shaabi, baladi, modern).
