Sahra Kent is the powerhouse behind Journey Through Egypt and today she joins us to get nerdy about the Sa’id.
For those of you who don’t know, it’s a region of Egypt, and where the dance you’ve heard of, Sa’idi, hails from. Sa’idi means of the Sa’id.
Don’t worry though, by the end of this podcast, you’ll know a lot more about this region!
We talk about the dances of the Sa'id, not only how they're portrayed in the hometowns and cities, but also how these dances are taken and portrayed to the rest of the world.
It's a fascinating talk that any dancer can use to help understand the nuances of dance as it migrates from one place to another.
