Urban Gypsy Folkloric Combinations
In this DVD, Sahira takes you on a journey into the heart of Egypt. Drawing heavily from the folkloric dancers of the Middle East, the combinations in this DVD put a new spin on several ancient movements. Each combination is first taught for a soloist and is built from the ground up with a focus on technique. Urban Gypsy then takes you through a few of the movements with exciting variations for troupes! A special section on music theory and zill technique is provided to complement the zill patterns used in some combinations. The DVD ends with a special performance by Urban Gypsy. Suitable for the tribal or cabaret stage, “Urban Gypsy Folkloric Combinations” will take your dance back to its roots!
