    Default How about living legends to be?

    The best Oriental dancers I have ever seen live and hopefully they will one day be living legends are: (in no particular order)

    Cassandra Shore
    Aisha Azar
    Jennet (Janet Shook, now living in Turkey)
    Helene Eriksen
    Fatima (The one from Africa whose daughter also dances)

    My current video star is Aida Nour

    Default Legends

    Dear Marya,
    Wow, thank you!! To be on the same list with Jennet and Cassandra makes me feel very special!!

    Everybody, Jennet is so fabulous and not many people know about her yet, but hopefully they will. My dance company has sponsored her twice and for our money, she is the best Turkish style dancer out there who is not Turkish! She spends a lot of time in Turkey and she might be there right now. She is trying to bring Reyhan, the Rom dancer to the States again and I hope that works out because I want to study with her.
    Regards, A'isha

    Heyyyyyy I meant Living Legends that are more than 60 + not our hot and steaming and sexy and gorgeous Aisha Azar !!!

    And here is my secret plan for April while being at Cairo.
    Aisha Azar will be there, I've organized to kidnap her with some other greeks !! lock her in a room, and since I have inside confidential goverment informations that she is a sweet freak (like me he he) I'll torture her with special sweets from Greece until she say yes and give us some lessons ...

    Now shhhhhhhhhhhh.... no-one tell to her

    Kisses
    Maria Aya


    p.s. I have already studied with Morocco thats why she is not in my wish list, but again... who ever denied another workshop with her

    Well, I am pretty sure Fatima is over 60.

    Sweets work every time with Aisha, and she does like to share.

    Default legends

    Dear Gang,
    I have only 5 years to go before I reach legend age, then!! I DO love sweets. Shakira of Ohio once shared a room with me when we were teaching a workshop together and reported to dancers far and wide that I am a "Hummingbird". Mark Balahadia nags me about it, but DaVid, a man after my own heart, also believes that dessert is the most important meal of the day! Mark stares at me with his beautiful eyes and says, "Do you really need that 5th piece of cake, A'isha?" What a spoilsport. Good thing he has a cute ass and dances way fabulously!!
    Regards,
    A'isha

    Default Morocco

    In case anyone doesn't already know this, Morocco is a foremost
    authority in Oriental dance and related Middle Eastern & North
    African dances (& rituals) and has been gathering first-hand
    experience through regular indepth visits to the Middle East for
    over 45 years now. She has been performing since 1960, leading tour
    groups all over the Middle East for over 30 years and teaching dance
    even longer, both in her studio in NYC, in seminars all over the US,
    Europe, and beyond, and for several years now in Cairo at Ahlan Wa
    Sahlan at the invitation of Raqia Hassan.

    Anyone who has been fortunate enough to study with her has
    experienced her extremely well-thought-out warmup, which covers the
    entire movement vocabulary in a precise order, going from largest
    and most external muscles to smaller and more internal ones. In the
    main part of the class she employs quite a few different teaching
    techniques including repeating sections and then adding new sections
    (for seminars), "follow along" choreography followed by breaking
    down parts the class had trouble with, doing improv two or three
    ways to the same song, and many others. It's always accurate, it's
    always real, and it's always fun. I have been lucky enough to study
    with her for about five years and only find there is more all the
    time for me to absorb. (As she could attest!)

    Morocco knows her stuff--the history, the cultural context, the
    costuming, the music, the people, what influenced whom--because she
    has been there and done that. Plus she's wicked smart, cool, and
    funny. I often say to myself that 90% of the questions that come up
    on this forum are ones that she has the answers to, which is why I
    am so looking forward to her book.

    If anything I'm understating all this. For more info and to find out where
    and when she might be coming near you go to: Welcome to Morocco's Meanderings

    P.S. She's human too! If you have the chance to study with her and talk to her,
    after you get over the first four words, you will feel like the conversation could--should--
    go on forever. I know I do.
