Turkish Oryantal & Zill Workshops with Safiya Nawaar in Louisville
Sparkle Dance Productions presents dance workshops with Safiya Nawaar on August 8th in Louisville, Ky!
Join widely acclaimed belly dance instructor and performer Safiya Nawaar for dance workshops focusing on Turkish Oryantal and Zills. This workshop is great for students of all levels beginner through advanced. Safiya has over 20 years of extensive training with master instructors of traditional and folkloric dance from the Middle East and North Africa. She was introduced to Turkish Oriental dance through workshops focused on Vintage Cabaret and fell in love with the style. Following many workshops and private lessons, she decided to go straight to the source and get more in depth training that was pure Turkish, rather than the Americanized version. To gain a deeper understanding she pursued teachers known for their authenticity and cultural studies. Over the years she studied repeatedly with Eva Cernik, as well as taking workshops with Artemis Mourat and Ozgen Ozgek. To further deepen her understanding of the dance and its roots, she invested herself into personal study of Turkish history and culture.
