    Mohamed Shahin

    An unexpected opportunity has arisen for me to take a private lesson with Mohamed Shahin this weekend ..g.:..g.:

    I was wondering if anyone who has studied with him has any recommendations on what I should ask him to teach? I'm currently planning technique, technique, technique, but if anyone has another idea I'd love to hear it.

    Technique, technique, technique sounds about right. I think I would ask for technique and combinations :)

    I havent studied with him - but I know him a bit :) If you're into Saiidi - he's an excellent source for that as well.

    Thank you! That was fast :) I have a Saiidi workshop with him tomorrow too, and Shaabi on Sunday - I love weekends like this ..g.:

    Technique, technique, technique never hurts, eh?

    Technique, especially traveling steps, presentation (expression, upper body angles etc). Let us know how it goes!

    He's really good at saidi. Tell Mo I said hi and I can't wait to see him in Chicago in a few months.
    Hey, ask him if he is still sponsoring a trip to Egypt this year.

    Re: Mohamed Shahin

    Well, my lesson went very well, he's very good at spotting the little things and making very minor adjustments that make all the difference. Just the way I like my private lessons to be, so I'm very happy. He says hi to Norma & the Chicago gang, he'll see you all in April, and yes, he is sponsoring a trip to Egypt this year :)

    IN APRIL??????? I better get ahold of Alexandria. Usually the Chicago workshop is in June, but the last time I talked to her it was going to be Sept. or Oct. I guess that didn't fit in his schedule.

    Thanks for mentioning me to Mo. He did email me back about Egypt. Now I better ask him about Chicago.

    Sorry, I didn't see the post - my notifications are not coming through for some reason ,m::

    Anyway, yes, he said April, but then he didn't look 100% sure, so yeah, email him to double check ..g.:

    Re: Mohamed Shahin

    Okay, I checked with Alexandria. Nothing is confirmed yet. But so far, it appears as if he is coming to Chicago the last weekend of April. Because of the short notice, she will not be able to do the big showcase like last year, but MO will be doing a workshop and he will be performing at Al Hambra on Saturday night.

    Once everything is confirmed I'll post the details.

    We are still hoping he can come in October as originally planned but there may be a scheduling issue.

    So stay tuned.
