This BellyZoom workshop is the first time Abeer with have taught in the UK. Virtually of course! She was scheduled to teach at the JWAAD Summer School which had to be postponed until next year.
Abeer is an expert on folklore dance in Egypt. I have met her several times in Cairo and we have teamed up with some of our groups. She is a warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable person.
Most of us are familiar with the Ghawazee based in Luxor. Clips of the Mazin sisters have been shown many times and they are the last descendants of the Ghawazee based in Luxor. Not as well known are the Ghawazee based in the Nile Delta. Their music and dance have developed differently and have a distinct feel.
Abeer is going to share with us their dance and music. She will explore the differences between the Ghawazee 2 styles.
