Bellydance Musicality: A Rhythmic Exploration of Compositions
Egyptian/Latin Percussionist & DJ Sam Nascimento and dancer/choreographer Keti Sharif present exciting dance workshops around the world in 2020. Sam introduced & pioneered Latin and world music and events Australia-wide. He held many long-term residencies, touring with international artists and dancers, and has played to audiences of thousands on a regular basis. He has recently shifted his focus on Arabic drumming and musical production.
Keti Sharif is the creator of A-Z Bellydance, and has spent many years in Egypt working with live music, researching somatics and musicality for dancers. After recent travels to Egypt, where they researched with top Arabic musicians and performers, Keti and Sam merged ideas and talents to usher in a new approach into the rhythm-dance-music connection. This dynamic creative team offers a fresh, energized perspective to support both students and professionals interested in various Arabic musical cultures - old and new.
Participants will deepen their connection to the the powerful, rhythmic heart of Arabic music and dance. They will learn a variety of traditional and rare Arabic rhytnms and how to dance to their unique patterns and time signatures, to feel the rhythmic flow of each style. Discover natural, easy and earthy ways of enhancing your dance skills by understanding the innate patterns and weight sensing that lies within each rhythmic matrix.
The first workshop offers an exploration of rhythms, from sensual and slow to lively and dynamic. You will study Arabic rhythms and their weight patterns in detail, learning fresh new combinations, and in the second workshop, you’ll sample Arabic musical compositions that feature these rhythms. Enjoy a somatic, musical approach that gives dancers the boost they need to enrich their art with a renewed sense of rhythmic knowledge, movement confidence and musical awareness. The result is a heightened sense of musical connection and artistic poise.
