Workshop

Saturday, 9:30-11:30 am - Ghawazee Influenced Improvisational Tribal Style (ITS) Vocabulary

Take the dance back to its roots! Inspired by the folk dances of Upper Egypt, Urban Gypsy brings you a "brand new" (but really old!) vocabulary of sassy and earthy movement combinations from their time spent with the Ghawazee and folk dancers in Cairo in 2006. Hearken back to the days of dancing in the desert with Urban Gypsy. Don't forget your zills!
