with Princess Farhana
Build a strong foundation for your oriental dance with this video. Farhana provides an introduction to Egyptian-style raks sharqi technique, from a full warm-up and correct posture to dance history. Comprehensive breakdowns for hip work, undulations, figure eights, shimmies and traveling steps are taught, as well as graceful arms, entrances, and some basic combinations.
The video concludes with a costumed performance, allowing the viewer to see how these steps can be put together and used in an improvised performance to a typical balady progression and drum solo
