Classical Egyptian Dance

AN INTENSIVE DAY OF DIVING INTO THE ESSENTIALS
for Advanced dancers, teachers and performers

Come away feeling more elegant and expressive!
Allow your body to sing!
Become one with the music.

A Holistic Approach

Rather than just thinking of the dance moving from one separate step and position to the next you will find the flow from the soles of your feet through your whole spine into the head and arms, the flow from one move to the next. You will find the confidence in how to navigate yourself through space, creating graceful curved lines punctuated by expressive hips, chest and arms. Your dance will look more elegant and effortless.

And of course we will add our own contemporary take on use of space, choreography and dramatic expression.

Individual Attention

Limited student numbers and the presence of two teachers allows for individual attention. The atmosphere is warm and non-competitive and each dancer is supported in her unique development. Non-intrusive hands-on using the Alexander Technique Principles of alignment are given as needed. We are always open to respond to your needs.

Team Work

Juliana Brusitk and Judy Hammond have been teaching and performing Egyptian dance (classical and folkloric styles) for over two decades. Working for over 20 years as a team combining their skills and experience Juliana and Judy have created a unique way of deepening the dancer’s understanding of how to use themselves more effectively and safely to allow for a more expressive dance.

Their combined body of knowledge includes Alexander Technique, the Feldenkrais Method, Tai Chi, classical Ballet, contemporary dance, Pilates and more. Their way of working addresses the underlying elements of this dance:

Spirals
Floating spine and arms
Poised head
Expansive use of space and direction
Intricate interplay of arms, hips and spine

Refreshments during the day

There is a spacious kitchen with a sitting area where you can hang out during the breaks. Teas, coffee, biscuits and fruit are provided.

Accommodation: some London students might be able to offer a bed/room for a very low cost. Please contact us if you are able to offer a bed or if you need a bed!
