Video Description: This workshop is a chronological breakdown of a classic choreography that reimagines dance in the Casino Badia era or 1920s Cairo. This historically inspired dance features skeletal shimmy technique, figure eights, weighted internal hip circles, balletic turns, elevated posture, and traveling undulations, all set to a Sama'i rhythm performed by George Sawa. We will move quickly through this dance so please be sure to warm up before beginning this choreography. For more difficult moves like the knee shimmy and the choo choo shimmy, please refer to April Rose's technique classes that break these down in detail.

For a visual reference of the "Casino Badia" era that inspired April Rose's choreography, check out this playlist we've put together on Youtube!

Wow! by Dyani on 6/15/16

I loved learning this beautiful dance. I've never had the opportunity to study with you until now. I must say your technical, historical, and applied knowledge lend to a teaching style that is much appreciated. I value your unique approach to fusion, whereby you truly ground us in historical roots and seamlessly weave in modern stylizations. I cannot wait to take this to the stage. Thank you again.
