Introduction to Jamila Salimpour Format WIth Stacey Lizette
Earthy. Strong. Juicy. Percussive. These are just some of the ways to describe Jamila Salimpour’s dance vocabulary which has been documented and taught since 1949. If you know the terms “maya” or “choo-choo” then you have been influenced by Jamila’s codification of Middle Eastern movement. In this workshop, Stacey will provide a brief history of Jamila, her work and lineage followed by breakdown and drills of Jamila format movements with finger cymbals. The drills strengthen footwork, transitions, hip work, timing, finger cymbals and improvisation. The workshop ends with a sassy dance combination to illustrate how easily Jamila movement patterns fit together. Students of all levels are welcome and encouraged to participate at their level.
