DESCRIPTION: This will be a very challenging, interesting and dramatic upper level class. Mejance is an Egyptian dance term. The mejanse is a dancer’s opening piece, often referred to as the dancer’s “calling card”. It gives a sneak peek of her show, or at least her style. Students will learn about what Mejanse is and how it fits into a dancer’s show. The class will also produce a choreography to open show 2023. Our choreography will be set to an orchestral Egyptian composition and will include veil and saidi sections, as well as many rhythmic changes. This particular piece of music is melodious to both the eastern and western ear. Drama cannot be emphasized enough for this class. This choreography is certain to make a stunning first impression on our showgoers.
PLEASE NOTE: All classes above beginner level require instructor permission (by email).
