We teach a modern expression of the Egyptian Dance Language without seperating from its rich and powerful tradition.

This Summer Dance will focus on the incredible live music we are greatful to have from our musicians Amir Ezzat and Murad Adly. We will have them for a whole week and we teach with them: we will develop movements with the music, we will learn how we can create a space to be able to respond to the rhythm and melody of the live music instantly.

Beside all this, we take you on a journey into the universe of the human body to understand the basis of movement through Egyptian Yoga, Body Mind Centering®, Gyrokinesis®, Wu Tao® and the movement traditions of Sufism in Egypt.

In an Ex Pries Seminar surrounded by a park with free internet and free parking.
