American Vintage: The 5 Part Routine; the Mini Version:
Discover the unique style that is American Vintage- a wonderful eclectic mix of Turkish, Lebanese, Egyptian, Greek, and everything in between brought to this country in the 40's and with its heyday in the 60's and 70's. This workshop will introduce the participant to the concept of the Five Part Routine from American Vintage Cabaret style Bellydance. An almost lost art form, this routine starts with wrapped-veil zill entrance, slow veil, floor work or standing taxim, drum solo and Karshilama zill finale all in a mini format to fit most of today's 5-7 minute solo slots!
