7 Q's with David Reihs:

DO: When/how did you get started playing music and what was your first instrument and style?

DRI started playing around on my parents' Hammond home organ and learning popular songs by ear from about 8 years old. I really liked percussion, but didn't like the bell set they gave me, that's not what KISS used, ya know? Then the school band director told my parents he needed trombone players, and I guess I was agreeable, so I did that through a year of college and some odd gigs after that before retiring and moving on back to keyboards and some guitar. So I formally learned trombone and played classical, jazz and American symphonic and marching band music. I also was lucky enough to work all through high school as the assistant to the local music store owner and learned all about instruments, got to fix them and consequently try them all out - it was a blast!

DO: So, when and why did you start playing Middle Eastern Music?

DR: When I was about 1 year old, my mom took bellydance lessons. I don't remember it of course, but I must have heard the songs she practised to from the one album she had. Fast forward 30 years to the year 2000 and I started overhearing my bellydance...

New Guest Teacher... Henna!

Introducing...Henna!

Egyptian Cabaret Choreography and Technique Workshops with Henna

Please join us in welcoming our newest guest teacher to Datura Online, Henna. We're very excited to be debuting two workshops: her Egyptian inspired Cabaret Choreography and a Classic Egyptian Technique Workshop. We think you will love it too! In the spirit of introductions, we've asked Henna a few questions so she can share a little bit about herself. Enjoy!

Henna

5 Q's with Henna:

DO: Where are you from, and when did you start dancing?

HHI was born in Hawaii but moved to Portland as a child.  Portland is my hometown.  I started dancing while I was a student at Portland State, in 2002.

DO: We heard that you first started performing belly dance when you were living in Japan. Can you tell us a little bit about that experience for you?

HHI consider my time in Tokyo to be like my belly dance apprenticeship.  It sounds funny, especially in Japan of all places, but Tokyo afforded me a lot of gigs, a lot of workshops with visiting dancers, and a great mentor.  I am really lucky to have met Mishaal, another American dancer there, who kind of took me under her wing and coached me both in the art of performing as well as the business side of things.  She came from a very different belly dance background than me, but we were kindred spirits in that we were world travelers, expats - outsiders in a way.  She offered me a lot of performance opportunities through shows that she produced as well as referring me to restaurants and other gigs.  She emphasized the spiritual and pe...
