Baby Beginner Beats  - w/ Nancy
Tuesdays 7:45 - 9:15          Part 1 June 26 - July 10         

                                             Part 2 July 17- July 31

Are you just learning to dance and desire a better understanding of the music?
Have you been dancing for a long time and enjoy the music, but just can’t remember the names of the rhythms?
Consider taking part in a 2 part 6-week class where you will learn some of the more common Middle Eastern Rhythms used in our dance. For a dancer, knowing basic rhythms provides a frame of reference for a performance or developing choreography.
You do not need a musical background to take this course, though a basic understanding of reading / counting music will help. If you have zills, you are encouraged to bring them otherwise, a practice pair will be provided.
Each session will review musical patterns, timing and a demonstration of how the rhythm is played on a Doumbek, Riq and zills.
After a review of the rhythm, there will be a discussion / demonstration of dance moves that you may consider using with the rhythm.
Having an understanding of the rhythms will give the dancer greater confidence when dancing with live musicians, as well as having the ability to anticipate where the music is leading.
Students will be provided with handouts during each session, and in between classes, encouraged to research music containing the rhythms reviewed. At the end of the 4 weeks, students will be given a CD of the basic rhythms covered in class, allowing them to continue the instruction.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to identify the rhythms Baladi, Masmoudi, Ayub, Ciftetelli, Bolero, Karsilama, Sai’idi (and more if time permits!).
