Saiidi choreography by Joana Saahirah taught in Poland, Orient Addicts Festival.
From Tradition to Modernity - a hip, dynamic, light Saiidi choreography using "Tahtib" vocabulary.
I owe most of my knowledge on Egyptian Folklore to Mahmoud Reda, the creator of the iconic Reda Troupe, fairly considered the father of Egyptian Folklore. The rest is a mix between research in my years of study and career in Egypt and creativity.
Mixing authentic vocabulary, attitude and feeling with modern elements can be a lot of fun and an homage to the roots. Knowledge and creativity are always a good combination!
