Reda Workshop at Studio Artemis
Please see here the listing for the 2019 version of this workshop weekend, Aegela will once again teach different Reda technique at Studio Artemis. We will follow a very similar format November 6-8, 2020 when she comes back. Our details are still pending. Contact Artemis to register.
Two-Day Reda Weekend NOTE THE 2020 DATES ARE NOVEMBER 6-8
Welcome to our Two Day Reda Weekend: August 24 - 25, 2019.
Aegela will offer a 10 hour course in Reda that includes two 1 hour lectures (footage too). She wants to keep the classes small (except for the lectures) since there is so much traveling in this style. Please let your friends know and ask them to email me.
Classes will go from 10:00 AM until 3:30 on Saturday followed by a swap meet which is open to the public. Bring your stuff and make some money. And 10:00 until 3:30 on Sunday. So, you can all get out of here in time for your gigs or in time to get home and fix supper. You are welcome to get ready for your gigs here. Chez Artie is open and we will welcome out of towners.
Aegela and our friend Sahra Saeeda are the leading US instructors of Reda Technique. Aegela has known Mr Reda since 1983 so she has had 36 years of dance technique and friendship to draw upon. Aegela has permission from him to share his music, footage and techniques with you and some of this is material that nobody else has.
The intensive will include technique, combinations and a full choreography. Each class builds on the previous ones so you will want to take the entire weekend (unless you have already had the prerequisite classes and have permission from Aegela). If you are new to Reda or need a refresher, this will be a perfect opportunity for you to start from the ground up with the prerequisite morning intro class on Saturday. Saturday afternoon, Aegela will teach combinations which will be imbedded in the choreography. By 3:30 on Sunday, you will have a complete choreography to take home. The music is available. Sign up with me.
For the entire weekend: Package is Deal $220 for 10 hours of instruction!
Full time participants will have priority in the enrollments. To sign up a la carte for each class separately, see prices below.
