Baladi Classic

Course overview
Learn Suhaila's Baladi choreography inspired by the classic elegant body lines of Sohair Zaki. Even Suhaila's chosen costume for the performance was inspired by a Sohair album cover.

Suhaila breaks down the choreography into Salimpour Vocabulary steps featuring "down" hips, a signature of Sohair's dancing. Instruction was filmed in 1981 in one session when Suhaila was 14.

Learn at one viewing or use the provided eight week plan. The video was converted for an old VHS tape, and the video occasionally skips frames. 

Salimpour Fundamentals (100-level) experience recommended.
