Layali Almaz is bringing back Egyptian gem Nada el Masriya for another intensive and fun filled weekend of oriental dance. 

Spend Over 10 hours with Nada el Masriya in Canada’s Capital!

  • Improve and perfect your Oriental Technique

  • Learn Saidi from its folklore roots to how it can be applied to your oriental dance – the focus will be learning folklore Saidi with a splash of how folklore moves can be adapted into Oriental music when the saidi rhythm is used.

  • Learn Music Mastery – at least one song will be examined from rhythm to melody and mood, in which the students will learn music interpretation and a choreography created by Nada el Masriya

Special Yoga/Body Awareness Workshops with Angelina Thorne

Dancers will be treated to daily sessions of body awareness and yoga with Angelina. These practices will help dancers work on spatial awareness and grace, while also developing flexibility, strength, and focus. It’s a toolbox of techniques for the mind and body!In the mornings, we will prepare our muscles & joints, stimulate the nervous system, and develop a grounded and alert state of mind by flowing through a rejuvenating morning practice that you’ll want to take home with you. In the afternoons, Angelina will lead dancers through a deeply restorative Hatha Yoga flow that will focus on all the places dancers love to stretch and soothe – hips, lower back, and shoulders. Your body will thank you!
