This workshop will present a picture of the ancient trance dance. She will touch on the people it comes from, aspects of their culture, the wardrobe, the movements and their meanings, as well as the drum rhythm and the chant. A video of collected performances and a live demonstration will be offered.
Jeannie has been a student of Middle Eastern dance for over 25 years. A natural dervish, she began dancing as a child, spinning endlessly in the moonlight. This ability expresses itself today in her love of double veil and double silk fans. Interested in all styles of dance, in the past several years she has taken particular interest in Tribal fusions. Currently she creates with her compatriots, Tribal Gypsy and continues to solo and teach privately.
5:00-6:30 p.m. – Workshop held at Studio B, 189 W. 8th Ave., Eugene, OR.
