    had a class from Eman Haddad?

    I'm considering going to the Northern Lights Bellydance Festival in Cable, Wisconsin, and one of the instructors I've never heard of: Eman Haddad. If you've had a class from her, can you tell me anything about her dance style, specialties, and whether you found her a good teacher?

    Speaking of Northern Lights festival...

    Speaking of the Northern Lights festival, let me put in a plug...

    I'll be one of the workshop instructors. Since the web site doesn't yet have details of what the workshops will contain, here's info on mind.

    First, I'll be teaching my 2-hour "Egyptian Dance in the 20th Century" video/lecture course that traces how Egyptian dance evolved from the 19th-century dance done at social occasions into the performing art it is today. I'll use video footage from classic Egyptian movies and more recent dance concerts to help illustrate how the dance grew and evolved in response to changing audience demographics, political and economic climate, and other factors. I'll weave these together with comments explaining the context of each. For example, if it's from a movie, I'll talk about the character being portrayed by the dancer, how the dance scene fits into the plot, etc.

    I'll also be teaching a dance class, "Dancing to Egyptian Music", which will cover the building blocks of Egyptian music - common rhythms, suggested step combinations for those rhythms, call & response, rule of fours, etc, and guide participants in creating their own choreography or improvised dance to an Egyptian song that uses these building blocks. I encourage (but don't require) finger cymbals for this class, because playing the rhythms on the cymbals before trying to dance to those rhythms helps internalize them.

    Okay, now that I'm done promoting my own workshops, I THINK Eman Haddad was the first teacher that Isidora Bushkovski had, before she moved to Colorado. (Izzy was one of the dancers performing on the Temptation of Bellydance DVD that was much-discussed on the old bhuz.) That's all I know about Eman.
