dance, music, body wisdom from egypt
Summer Dance is an ideal opportunity to work closely with Caroline Chevat, Marie Al Fajr and Claudia Heinle, unique artists in their field, as well as celebrated musicians from Egypt, who enrich the week with their music and knowledge. This year we are looking forward to collaborating with Murad Adli and Amir Ezzat.
We teach a modern expression of the Egyptian dance and music language without separating it from its rich and powerful tradition and take you on a journey to 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.
Summer Dance - teachers have presented their work in numerous countries, festivals and institutions, including: Cairo Opera, Alexandria Opera, Berlin Hebbel am Ufer, University of Constance, Tanzhaus Zurich, Tanzhaus Düsseldorf, Dance House Stockholm, TCD Théatre Contemporaine de la Danse Paris, CAK Centre for African Culture Oslo, World Health Organization Copenhagen, ADEM - Les Ateliers ́Ethnomusicologie Geneva, Institut du Monde Arabe Paris, Forum Library of Alexandria, Rawabet Theatre Cairo, to mention just a few.
Summer Dance takes place in the special atmosphere of “Le Gingko” in Belley, a charming town with 9000 inhabitants. It is a perfect place to be creative, about an hour’s drive from Lyon and Geneva. We work in two studios as well as the outdoor dance and yoga platform in the garden of Le Gingko.
