Mahmoud Reda is Returning - Super Saver Rate Available NOW!

In case you haven't heard, the legendary dancer and choreographer Mahmoud Reda will be back in Atlanta this September for workshops and a gala show.  Amani Jabril sponsored two days of workshops and an amazing show last year, and she has booked Mr. Reda again for Labor Day weekend (September 3-4)!

From now until July 31, Amani is offering a great deal!  A full weekend pass, including workshops on Saturday and Sunday as well as the Saturday night show, is just $175.  Individual day passes are $100 each, and show tickets are $15.  Click here to learn more and to buy your tickets before prices go up!  After the 15th, weekend passes will be $200 and day passes will be $125.  Workshops will be at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance, a lovely facility with a big studio space in Roswell.

If you're not already booked for Labor Day weekend, you owe it to yourself to spend some time with Mr. Reda -- particularly if you are interested in folkloric dance.  I was at last year's Saturday workshop, and though it was one of the most challenging things I have ever done (there is a lot of intricate footwork, which is always difficult for me without detailed breakdowns), I am so grateful that I was able to study with this living legend.  Though his explanations were not always easy to follow, he was surrounded by professional dancers who immediately (amazingly, to me) interpreted his movements into graceful folkloric combinations.  Saturday night's show included amazing talent from throughout the Southeast, including several Reda choreographies that are seldom seen live.  Personally, I am an absolute nut for folkloric dance in general and the ballet-infused Reda style in particular, so I was in heaven!

I hope you'll take advantage of this amazing opportunity to save some money on a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will really enhance your life as a dancer.
