Oriental/ Egyptian RAQS Classes With Nataliya
Egyptian Raqs Sharqi (Raks Sharki), also called Egyptian cabaret, has its roots in Egyptian social and folkloric dances. It originated in the early 20th century in Egypt.
Raqs Sharqi incorporates baladi and folkloric movements, as well as western influences which can be seen in the use of turns, travelling steps and a more lifted feeling than the traditional local dances. Then later the the dance began to be choreographed for group dances and performed on a stage.
