Afternoon workshop 2-4 PM with Carol
"Dance Party: Egyptian Shaabi!"

“Shaabi” means “of the people”, and typically refers to the more ‘urban’ style of Egyptian pop music. Shaabi dance became distinguished as such when belly dancers decided to include shaabi music in their sets, derived from the more homegrown, baladi style of dancing one normally would see in social settings. Go to an Egyptian wedding and you’ll hear popular, local shaabi music blasting from the DJs and people dancing up a storm. It can be raucous, cheeky, political, silly, sexual, or even nonsense. In a word, it’s FUN. In this workshop, we’ll start with an overview of basic technique and styling, a quick survey of shaabi music ‘through the ages” from the 70s to present day, then we’ll jam with short, fun combos to some of the most popular songs out of Cairo.
