This is the last chance to join the new season of ANAR DANA Seattle!! We start with the basic building blocks of the dance styles in the repertoire. It's a great way for people from all over the world to get acquainted with these dance styles even if they are too far away to join ANAR DANA Seattle. We will be live and in-person at Studio Deep Roots, with a potential for a hybrid option. Here is our repertoire for the coming year:
Nailiyat dance from Algeria Baladi, urban folkdance, Egypt Bosnian songs and dances from the 3 ethnicities of Jajce and Travnik Henna Celebration from Elazığ, Turkey "Uzundara" from Armenia Bandari from the Persian Gulf, Iran Logari stop dance from Afghanistan
The project is a series of 10 intensive weekends of 12 hours each and 7 Cultural Talks. The repertoire of 7 dances was decided upon in the introductory weekend. We will learn the techniques of each of the dance styles decided upon, do dance technique training and yoga, learn about the cultural and historical backgrounds for the different dance styles, learn about choreography, staging, stage make-up and costumes. There is a certificate of participation for all who complete the program. You don't have to live in Seattle to join the project. In the past the Seattle chapter has had members from Oregon, California, Texas and Canada and we will be glad to welcome you and host you if you come from afar. Please register to secure your spot ASAP.
