LogoIntermediate Cane Choreography – Hanover

WHERE: Hanover Rec Center, Hanover
TIME: 5:30-6:45 
When: Mondays, July 17 - August 28 (no class July 31 - Please come to the Persian Workshop with Shahrzad Khorsandi!)


This class is designed to teach cane skills as well as a choreography.   Cane dance is called Raqs Assaya and comes from the Egyptian men's martial art called Tahtib.   Women essentially perform with the cane in a playful manner that "mimics" and feminizes some of the men's moves.  This choreography will be continued in the fall and will be performed in the fall.  You CAN take this class and NOT perform this piece in the show.  Costume deposits will be due by Friday July 27 (more info forthcoming).   A very fancy silver sequined cane is included with class registration.   Each class begins with core exercises.  Please see FAQ's below for what to bring as you'll need some accessories for class. 

PLEASE NOTE: All classes above beginner level require instructor permission (by email).

LOCATION: Hanover Rec Center (Richard W. Black Center), Hanover, NH
