Learn choreo to a classic song, and work on nuances of the lyrics interpretation & facial expression.

Intensives are guided training programs with a specific theme. Each intensive combines a selection of technique drills, lectures and various assignments to help you develop certain skills. 

Get access to this intensive and all classes at the Iana Dance Club.

By the end of this intensive you will have a ready-to-perform choreography to the famous classical song Tab Wana Maly, by Warda. But not only that! We will also:

  • give special attention to the nuances of the interpretation of the lyrics,

  • discuss the meaning of tarab, and differences of dancing to classical Arab songs (compared to mejance or popsong),

  • work on your facial expression,

  • experiment with your makeup skills, and

  • develop skills of self-coaching and polishing presentations which you can apply to any future dance routines.

Difficulty: Intermediate/Advances. 

Workload: High. 

Suggested duration: 10 weeks.  

If you follow our suggested duration of eight weeks, get ready to invest 2-3 hours per week in your training. But remember, you can go through this intensive at your own pace. Ten weeks is just a suggested structure.
