Saidi ( Cane dance). Saidi dance is a folkloric dance (one of the Baladi dances) from the Sa'id, a rural area in Southern (Upper) Egypt.

Level= Open level

North Balgowlah Community Centre (lower Hall)
This is a new and very exciting class that will take you on a fabulous journey of dance and self-discovery.
You will learn how to freely express yourself through Bellydancing.
I will teach you how to think on the spot and access the wonderful library of dance moves you already know, so to fluidly transition between moves whilst eliminating those thoughts of “What do I do next” and those complete “blank moments” that we have all experienced.
I will guide you with techniques that will allow you to be completely present when your improvising, allowing you to dance through your emotions and feeling. This ultimately adds great power to your dance and capturing your essence.
Whether it be a drum solo, Takasim, Arabic pop or a classical piece of music, at the end of this course you will feel confident to own the dance floor your dancing on and enjoy the liberating experience of improvisation, whilst letting your inner Goddess shine.
