... Cairo! The experience of a lifetime! ...
Journey through Egypt - 3: On-site Egypt as Classroom
As trained dancers and informed researchers, we travel to Egypt!
... Readied from our work in JtE-1 and JtE-2 we continue our quest, learning and experiencing movement and culture taught to us by a variety of indigenous peoples.
JtE-3: On-site Cairo Egypt as Classroom includes:
dance classes, Dance Ethnology training in Cairo and Giza, historical sites, interviews with people in the know and personal attention to the development of your own personal fieldwork.
More than 30 hours of instruction in 6 days.
We live the real Egypt: While learning anthropological observation techniques,we interview and observe local people, gaining insight into the culture in which these dances emerge.
The real Egypt is not just the marble floors of the 5-star hotels,
not just a bus rushing to take us to artifacts behind glass.
Class/Tour is open to those who have graduated from pre-requisite JtE-1 & JtE-2
Includes study materials, lodging at Sphinx Guesthouse, half-board, all stated tours, performances and instruction. Certificate upon completion.
With the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx directly outside our classroom window, we continue our dance tradition coursework, concentrating on the dances, ritual and cultures we will be visiting:
dancing to live Egyptian musicians, viewing Tanura and Zeffah first hand,walking down Mohammed Ali Street famous for Awalem and musicians, we talk to and enjoy people we have only read about.
