What is Dancepiration?
“Originally the project, ‘Dancepiration’ was just to bring renowned choreographer from L.A, Gigi Torres and her assistant Asaki Imai, to give a four days intensive workshop for dancers in Cairo (both teens and adults) followed by a Dancepiration show to advertise the acts in Egypt. This turned out to be a great success and slowly Dancepiration became a dance movement in Cairo to unite the dancers, create dance events (shows, workshops, etc…), and share our passion and raise awareness through giving classes. In January 2012, Fibers Wellness Club became the heart of the Dancepiration team, its main studio and a great supporter of the movement.” -Naomi Sobol, Dancepiration Team.
The Dancepiration Movement was created in 2010 to expose, promote, support, bring awareness and inspire the Dance community in Egypt. We aim to connect all dancers together and create events for them to perform and show their talent, and we also organize workshops to learn with dancers from abroad.
We wanna help the Dance scene in Egypt evolve and be more up to date with the different styles and techniques that are being taught and innovated every day.
The Dancepiration team consists of performers and teachers that are dedicated to teach in many arenas, schools, dance studios and gyms around Egypt.
Also we wish to expose Egyptian, Middle Eastern dance culture around the globe by creating workshops abroad in Traditional Dance, Percussion and its culture.
