About the event

You’ve learned the dance (or at least you’re starting to), but what about the history? The culture? The people? Shouldn’t we know just as much about those things as the dance itself? How does knowing about the context of the dance affect our dance practice?

It makes us better dancers.

It also makes us more culturally aware, and respectful, which is never a bad thing.

Sahra Kent (a.k.a Sahra Saeeda) studied Dance Ethnology at UCLA, during which time she spent 6 years in Egypt researching and writing her master’s thesis on the zeffah, and opening doors to all kinds of knowledge. Decades later, her research continues, and she will share it with you at this event. Learn more about the course topics and Sahra at

Please note that the schedule is tentative at this time, but will involve 20 hours of classtime (mostly lecture with some movement). Classes will begin on Friday afternoon/evening and continue through Sunday afternoon/evening, so please plan accordingly. Due to the nature of this course, all participants are expected to attend for the duration of the weekend. More details about the schedule to come.

Cost is $250 (plus Paypal fee) for the full weekend enrollment through October 15th, at which time the price will increase to $300. Those who have taken JtE in the past can contact Rahil for a $50 discount. Contact Rahil if you wish to set up a payment plan. Refunds are available until October 15th, or until the event sells out. Space is VERY limited!
