Survey: Moroccan Dance
Whether Arab or Berber, whether in the tents of the nomads or in the village squares of the peasants, or in the tiled stylized gardens of the cities -- the music and dance of Morocco is the heartbeat of the people. In this workshop, Helene will give you a glimpse into the rich variety of Moroccan dance and music traditions. Particular emphasis will be placed on the urban style of the Sheikhat. The Sheikhat are the professional female dancers of Morocco who perform at weddings and other festivities.
