***This will be the 8th annual workshop of this type with Sadaqah

Dancers have a great time and have said that they learn  alot.***
  Rafi'ah has many years of experience dancing to live music. With guidance from her and the musicians of Sadaqah, there will be education about the instruments and the music, practice interpreting the different parts of the while learning to switch between instrumentation and percussion and what type of movements to put where and when.
You will come away with a deeper understanding of how to dance to Middle Eastern music. Rafi'ah will also share some simple options for zill playing as well during various parts of the song, 
however, zills are NOT mandatory. 
" Rafiah translates music virtually to perfection by molding to the music, feeling each phrase and combining the melodies and sharpness of the percussion. She conveys the music deeply. Her ability to execute shape, dynamic hip isolations and then finish with a look of ultimate lightness and liquidity is a visual treat."--Casseopia/Jareeda Magazine-
