Dance like an Egyptian.
Come take a class with one of San Francisco's bellydance founders Amina Goodyear, learn to play Arabic percussion with master Susu Pampanin, and join a social club of the Bay Area's most rockin' Middle Eastern dance lovers. Classes range from absolute beginner to superstar status, and make it easy for students to dive in and get immersed.
A troupe dedicated to celebrating Middle Eastern, Arabic and Egyptian Culture through music and dance, the Aswan Dancers are celebrating 40 years of nonstop performance and entertainment.
Don't miss it:
Come to Mendocino Middle Eastern Music and Dance Camp July 8-15, 2017. Amina will teach Raqs Sharqi, Baladi and Shaabi. Susu will teach Arabic tabla and Susu and TerriAnne will teach Drummer/Dancer dynamics. These classes are daily and will end with student performances. There will be many dancers, musicians, teachers - all artists - you know at this camp. One of the highlights is the Arabic Concert led by Georges Lammam. To warm up your ears for camp, come to Pena Pachamama (usually 2nd Friday of the month) and maybe you'll be privy to a rehearsal song or two.
