This June The Past and The Future meet in London for an incredible 5 days of workshops with the legendary Suhaila Salimpour!
It's going to be a very special summer because Suhaila will be teaching both a Jamila Level 1 workshop, with optional testing, and - for the first time ever - a special 12 hour Jamhaila workshop open only to certified dancers and those attending the Jamila 1!
Know your roots!
Jamila Salimpour, born in 1926, is the matriarch of belly dance in the United States and the mother of Tribal belly dance. Her format has had a huge impact on belly dancers of all styalizations but is especially credited as a a major inspiration for American Tribal Style and Tribal Fusion Belly Dance. In 2007, following her mother's encouragement and blessing, Suhaila launched the Jamila Salimpour Certification programme to further augment and expand the Salimpour School
The Jamila Level 1 certification workshop is open to everyone and certified students are encouraged to join - students who are already certified will get extra special layers and feedback. For those students who have been waiting to test for level 1 -The time is NOW!
The Future of the Salimpour School comes to London!
Jamhaila, in its most basic sense, is a blending of the Jamila and Suhaila formats representing both the roots and the future of the school. In this workshop, students will begin to learn and work the format from the inside out. They will begin learning how to manipulate the JSF (Jamila Salimpour Format), layer JSF movements over JSF movements, and add SSF (Suhaila Salimpour Format) layers. Not only does this burst open the creative and technical possibilities inherent in belly dance as a professional performance genre, but it also gives us greater versatility in how we choose to interpret Arabic music!
