Join us for 4 days in beautiful Portland, Maine with international superstar Shahrzad, October 24-27, 2019. 6 hours per day in the studio Thursday-Sunday, a show on Sunday evening with private feedback from Shahrzad, plus optional evening activities. The focus of this unique intensive will be connecting technique and musicality. We will nerd out and dive deep into about maqamat (melodic modes) and iqqat (rhythms), song interpretation from various eras, transitioning between sections in a song and in a set, Shahrzad’s unique and extensive approach to belly dance technique, and more. Plus we'll very likely have live drumming for our technique and rhythm drills!
