This week we continue to advance our new warm up combination from last week, based on the dancers and style of the Golden Age of Belly Dance. Dancers such as Tahiya Karioka, Samia Gamal and Naima Akef brought this style to the black and white cinema of Egypt in the 1950s, and we will be learning movements in this genre for the combination we’ll be using for warm up for the next few months. Think soft, feminine and floaty… you will love it!
