In this intensive 2-days seminar, Atef & Magda will teach a wide and rich variety of Egyptian dance styles from various regions of Egypt. They will cover technique and choreographies in the following styles:

  • Egyptian Oriental dance
  • Gawazi
  • Alexandrian (Melaya)
  • Haggalah
  • Cane dance

Their choreographies are very unique, elegant and simple, yet very rich and clever. They both very beautifully blend the Egyptian Folkloric dance traditions with Raqs Sharki (Oriental Dance).

With their extensive experience in teaching, choreographing and producing theatrical dance shows, Atef and Magda's workshops is an excellent opportunity for dancers who wish to improve their performance skills, learn new techniques and increase their knowledge about Egyptian culture and dance. The workshop is open to all levels of dancers who want to learn authentic Egyptian dance.

Atef and Magda will be available for private and semi-private classes in Santa Clara, CA. Please contact if interested
