Video evening

At the end of term, my beginner students asked whether we were going to have a video night, as part of the course, and I said that no, I usually only do them at the end of Summer term and Winter term. Since they seemed kind of disappointed, I suggested that if anyone was willing to host us, I could do a video evening during the hols. One of them offered, and we agreed a date. Which was today.

What was lovely was that they were recognising the moves that we do in class, and actually saying, "we could do that..." and realising for themselves that actually it's nice to be able to dance quite simply and not overdo things.

What was also lovely is that a couple of the ladies brought a friend of theirs who might be joining up next term (which is only a week away- eep!).

As usual, I tried not to go overboard on my favourite Egyptian dancers. So we had some American stuff (courtesy of IAMED), including some FCBD ATS, and some Turkish (courtesy of Asena, who is my favourite Turkish dancer). But we did have a load of Suhair Zaki (including gropey Adaweya), Fifi Abdou, Mona Said and Hala el Safy.
