We consider Boston «Little Beirut». We have seen many fellow dancers performing for Lebanese crowds who unfortunately don't understand that there is a distinctive Lebanese style. They perform Saidi instead of Dabke 😬 PLEASE, don't let this Faux paw happen to you. Let's welcome Ustez Samer Fares, Modern Syrian/Lebanese dance star to Boston!!! Official flyer coming soon. He will give you a taste of Syria/Lebanon through his unique Modern style!!! Sponsored and hosted by HAFI!
When: March 20, 2017 ~ Monday Night
$30 for TWO hours!
You can pay at the door.
First come, first serve, space permitting.
Celebrity choreographer Samer Fares will be in Boston on Monday March 20, 2017!!! He will be sharing an introduction to Modern Syrian/Lebanese Belly Dance (oriental) and Dabke! You will also learn fun combinations on how to incorporate Dabke steps into your full dance routines for clubs. You want to learn Egyptian? Study with an Egyptian. You want to learn Levantine style (Lebanon, Syria, Palestine) study with a Levantine trainer!!!
Boston is considered Little Beirut. MOST Arabic clubs/haflis are run and owned by Lebanese American Immigrants. The clients expect to see a polished and well trained Levantine style performance. HAFI sponsors events with both Egyptian artists and artists from the Levant. To be an overall well rounded performer it is imperative that one understands who their clients are and are able to adapt their shows accordingly.
