This soft, flowing & modern belly dance was choreographed by Schadia to a
sweet song called "Behabak," which means "I love you" in Arabic. This
choreography engages both the dancer and the audience with the graceful
incorporation of balancing a tray while performing the choreography.
Raqs al Seniyaa, or dancing while balancing a tray, is a very old form of
dance most likely originating in Morocco as an interpretive dance of the
Moroccan Tea Ceremony. The Moroccan tray balancing is often done with a tea
pot on top of the tray, surrounded by tea cups w/ little candles in them.
Dancing with a tray of flowers as we will be learning to do in this course
gives our Tray Dance a modern slant and makes the dancer feel feminine and
beautiful. What women doesn't love to surrond herselves with flowers?
If you haven't balanced before, balancing a tray is a great place to start.
Trays will be available for purchase at the studio. Schadia will give you
lots of tips and tricks to make balancing a snap. And Yes, she will also go
over how to build a lovely flower arrangement to go on top of your tray.
Don't miss the rare opportunity to learn this beautiful choreography and the
graceful art of tray balancing.
