    The final Baladi Blues Academy - Practice Session of the year.  Hosted by Guy Schalom and featuring the full Baladi Blues Ensemble.  

    For this final session of the year we will include a masterclass where (those who want to) can dance solo with the band and receive valuable feedback.  

    A unique opportunity to:

    - prepare for auditions, competitions and other performances
    - practice improvising with world-class Arabic musicians
    - gain a better understanding of Arabic dance music (classical, Baladi and other folk styles)
    - have fun, meet like-minded people and
    - take your dancing/musicianship to the next level

     This is what you can expect:

    -Plenty of time to practice beginnings, endings and tricky musical corners
    -Detailed and clear explanations about the music
    -YOUR choice of music (please ask in advance)
    -Valuable constructive feedback from the musicians
    - 4 hours of live music with the full Baladi Blues Ensemble
    -A supportive and empowering environment among like-minded people who put dance and music FIRST.
    -Limited numbers

    This challenging work requires supportive people who share our ethos. That ethos is critical to all our education and development work - the music and dance come first with no exceptions. 

    Cost: £65 for the full session 6pm-10pm
