Below is the current song name & description of the choreographies taught.

A fun and up beat choreography in collaborating with wide range of Raks Sharqi dance movements combinations in a ‘fast and furious’ manner yet still graceful and elegant.

Prop for the class: Veil
Costume: Full set bellydance costumes with circle skirt and veil to perform
2. Double Cane, music; Ammouna fi al said sung by Bassem Yazbek
A folkloric dance to saidii music with double cane combinations movements. Each combination combines feminine as well as masculine movements for a very authentic and complete dance. This is a fun loving saidii music piece and the dance will also incorporate some of Joey’s usual cane combinations which will be more aggressive and less flirtatious. So join us and have fun, not forgetting to bring your double cane for the class.
