Video Description: This raqs assaya choreography combines elements of Egyptian raqs sharki, American Cabaret, and Saidi into a dynamic and fun dance. Basic assaya technique will be used to frame or accompany earthy hips and Saidi footwork. Since we are adding a prop to belly dance movement, this choreography is best suited for dancers with a solid foundation in basic belly dance. Please be sure to warm up before starting this choreography.

Yay! by Omega on 5/26/16

Challenging and fun! I will definitely perform this. I've done a lot of cane and this was a breath of fresh air. And thank you for your comments on musicality. :D


You are very welcome, Omega. It's nice to get out of our usual movement patterns. I hope to see you perform it sometime :)

I was literally thinking just yesterday how I'd love to see more saidi on here! I have a few saidi DVDs, but am way more inclined to work with online classes than put a DVD in (no idea why, haha!). Hooray!!
