Middle Eastern Rhythm, Drum and dance Workshop w/Ramzi El-Edlibi

Workshop Description For all levels.  Grab a drum and have some fun! Learn the basics of the Middle Eastern polyrhythmic structures, focusing on North African and Arab rhythms.  The class includes a handout of these rhythms written in a very simple way and will finish with a drum and dance circle. For non-dancers drumming provides great stress relief and "brain exercise". For belly dancers learning the rhythms of the music you dance to is imperative to developing stellar musicality and feeling in your dance.  Middle Eastern drums will be provided.

    Can't wait! I am addicted to drumming since starting Ramzi's class in Astoria. He is a fantastic teacher and incredibly knowledgeable. We will work on the common rhythms heard in bellydance music. Nothing improved my dancing more than learning the nuances of the rhythms of this music.
