The improvisational relationship between music and movement will be explored through these workshops.
Hilal Dance is a contemporary Egyptian dance form developed by the internationally renowned Egyptian artist Suraya Hilal. Hilal dance draws its inspiration from the traditional ecstatic dance cultures of Egypt and extends these traditions in an expansive and contemporary way. Suraya Hilal has developed a system of body work akin to other Eastern practices which use the breath to become more present in the body.www.hilaldance.com
