Building your own Egyptian Megeance – Part I

A megeance (pronounced MERGE-en-say) is a term used to refer to the opening routine in Egyptian style dance. The music is composed for the dancer to show off her best skills as it has multiple rhythm changes within the song. There are many wonderful recordings of Egyptian megeances available from classic to modern. Aziza Nawal will help you understand the rhythms and structure of a megeance and provide tools to create your own choreography.

Level 2-3

Building your own Egyptian Megeance – Part II (Starts January 21/22)

A megeance (pronounced MERGE-en-say) is a term used to refer to the opening routine in Egyptian style dance. This class will be a continuation of the previous session focusing on the finished product. Now that you will have an outline of movements and an understanding of the structure, you can apply that to a complete routine. Select your own music or one will be provided for you. The last class will consist of presenting your work to the class for a gentle critique from Aziza Nawal.

Level 2-3

  • Muse for Life classes begin January 21
  • AFBD classes begin January 22

Bonus: Your finished choreography could be performed at an upcoming showcase!
