Music Workshop Weekend!

This Saturday is going to be a fun-filled musicarama with Ziah and Majda of Awalim!  Ziah is teaching a zils workshop and Majda is teaching about Middle Eastern musical modes.  Natakiya is going and has been preparing by researching and reading about Maqamat.  It's truly fascinating, whether you're a dancer or a musician or both like we are!

Choreography Intensive

Today is the second installment of Awalim's choreography intensive!  Both Natakiya and Ariana are attending.  So far it's been a fascinating class with a lot of intense introspection of music.  The rest of the intensive is guaranteed to knock our socks off.  Watch out - pretty soon Kangari will be rockin' the house with some amazing choreographic skillz (with help from Ziah, Majda and other members of Banat Almeh too!!)
