Based on the results of our recent survey, a fair number of local students are interested in learning more about Lebanese-style belly dance. Amani Jabril is currently building a Lebanese-style class... if you are interested in attending, please contact her!
If you've seen Amani perform, you know that she captures the earthiness and sensuality of this art form oh-so-beautifully (she will be performing in this Saturday's Alicia workshop show at Pera). As both a working anthropologist and a professional dancer, Amani offers a practical, street-smart view of not only the technical aspects of music and movement, but also the culture and the motives from which the dance as cultural expression is created.
Taken from her own experiences in the field in Egypt, Lebanon and the U.A.E., in addition to ex-pat groups in the United States, Amani's classes include favored combinations as seen on the contemporary dance scene as well as movement from her own signature style.
Amani currently has ongoing classes in Alpharetta and Roswell:
- Advanced Technique & Choreography: Mondays 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. at Amani's home studio in Alpharetta
- Open Level Egyptian Bellydance: Tuesdays 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Street Studio & Fitness in Roswell
