Rhythm & Raqs! 10 week session (Sterling, VA)

Adult, Multi-level.

Learn to dance and play finger cymbals with Middle Eastern music. Dance shoes recommended.

10 week session begins Wednesday April 23!

Rhythm & Raqs: From the perspective of dance and music as a community experience, students learn percussion and dance as a performance ensemble. With a strong foundation in cultural context, students explore popular rhythms and basic techniques for playing finger cymbals and doumbek or tabla, the Arabic drum. Multilevel. Bring finger cymbals or drum.

Founded in 2009 by dancer and educator, Katayoun Hutson, Mosaique promotes cultural diversity and education through expert instruction and uplifting performances of authentic Middle Eastern dances. While we embrace a contemporary vision of artistic expression, the heart of our program is firmly rooted and infinitely inspired by traditional forms.

We strive to provide a welcoming environment where a diverse array of people can experience the joys and benefits of Middle Eastern dance together. We offer a fun, non-competitive and challenging program for kids and adults of all ages. We organize performance opportunities for our members, and our members participate in events organized by others throughout the Washington, DC area.
