About This Class

Sexy, sassy, funky, jazzy - a TRULY unique balady.  I hear it at all of the big events - sometimes to multiple performances!   Balady is the style.  Nahuand is the scale (maqam) in which it is played.

The challenge, of course, will be the inherent lack of symmetry in this style of music and what that does to a choreography that might make it a bit trickier to learn and retain.  These sam characteristics call for a few pockets of improvisation.

So this will be an advanced choreography - level 4/5 on a scale of 1 to 5.
