On August 30, 2019 Tarifa Salem will teach a choreography creaated by her late mentor/uncle Ibrahim Farrah, legendary Middle Eastern Dance Artist and Master Instructor. Jennifer Jemeena will be hosting her again in this 3 hour Master Class which will include an extensive warm up, travel combinations and sagat drills that will prepare participants to learn the Ibrahim Farrah Choreography, Ayeela Tayha with the finger cymbal patterns Tarifa uses with it. Mr. Farrah created this “old school” Shaabi number in the mid-80s and it has been a favorite among his students and proteges world wide. It is a special treat to be able to offer this class near the birthplace of Ibrahim Farrah where the passion for his art was nurtured.
