The workshop was fantastic! Thank you. I had never even picked up a sword before and had no idea how much I would enjoy it. Way more fun then the cane -- especially once you learn how to do it. I think that everyone else enjoyed it as well. The tribal ladies from Charlotte and points south were blown away...Dierdre

It’s been a week today since one of the classiest, elegant and creative lady, master of Raqs Sharqi, Amara Al Amir, shared her knowledge with us during the Egyptian cane and veil workshops in Greenville, SC. Amara’s instruction was rich and authentic. It was what I would call “the real deal”.  I’, sure that all of you that participated in her workshops and / or saw here dance at the Hafla felt that Amara brought the artistic interpretation, projection of feelings, technique and variety of moves to a level that we all only dream about now.  I would like to thank Amara for wonderfully thought workshops.  The way the Cane and the Veil Orientale to Oum Kalthoum’s “Ana Fi Intizarek” were structured exposed us to a large variety of moves and expressions.  Amara did an amazing job teaching us full length choreographies each day incorporating technique of some moves easily forgotten by today’s dancers. Thank you again. You brought more joy this weekend that I can tell you in plain English. You filled out my house with positive energies and women power...Layla Layali, Greenville SC
