Hannah Romanowsky - Under the Moroccan Moon: Chikhat Dance Choreography (Performance Opportunity)

  • Zil-Ker Room - Holiday Inn (Midtown) 6000 Middle Fiskville Road Austin, TX, 78752 United States (map)

The chikhat are professional female entertainers of Morocco hired to dance and sing for weddings and other family celebrations. In addition to playful partnering, rhythmic footwork, complex shimmies and torso articulations, and characteristic hand gestures, a dancer may show off her skills through acrobatic floor-work and tray-balancing. Participants will learn a sweet choreography incorporating these stylistic elements.

Skill Level: All Levels

Performance Opportunity - This class will have a chance to perform the choreography learned during the ABDC Showcase.
