Do you wonder what Arabic singers are singing about? Do you wonder how to interpret Arabic songs to your audience? If you want to know how to put real meaning into your dancing, this fun and informative workshop, now on DVD, is for you.
While you won't learn to speak Arabic in one workshop, you WILL learn the most commonly heard words and phrases from Arabic dance songs along with gestures and body language that go with them. This will help you understand the tone and emotion of Arabic songs and how to express them to your audience. You'll have everyone, even Arabs, wondering where and how you learned Arabic! A dance classic and two recent pop songs are used as study tools. By the end of the workshop you'll be able to "sing along"with a well known pop song and will know how to interpret it to an audience.
Based on Leyla's workshop of the same name, the DVD is fully chaptered featuring "hidden" markers within the chapters allowing you to skip to sections that you want to study or practice. The web address for the extensive class notes appears in the "Extras" Chapter on the DVD.
