About JtE 1:
“Acknowledging the regions of Egypt, the course covers the dances of Nubia of Upper Egypt to the dances of the Suez canal, Delta, and Mediterranean coast, from the Sinai to Siwa, and everything in between! No matter what stage of your dance career, Journey Through Egypt can help you gain a cultural perspective that will be invaluable both to you, and those around you.

While the origins and ancient history of bellydance are widely debated and unproven we do investigate how performance dance has changed over the last 200+ years in Egypt. From the banishment of dancers by Mohammed Ali, to the elevation of dance to the national and international stage with Mahmoud Reda, Journey Through Egypt is a comprehensive course on the dances of Egypt and their known history.

To change the way that bellydance is seen by the mainstream public, we have to start with educating ourselves, and then educating our students and audiences to the best of our abilities.

Filled with stories, videos, images, and more, Journey Through Egypt is a course that is essential to any Middle Eastern Dance student, teacher, or performer who wants to know more about the history of their dance form.”
