Zambra Mora Wokshop - Nov. 13/2010
-Went for a great workshop at Arabesque in Toronto (see link below); then off to visit my friend Trish and to get a Festive Special at her fav. Swiss Chalet in Richmond Hill.
The fusion of Bellydance and Flamenco that we know today is called Zambra Mora,after the flamenco music developed by Sabicas. Zambra Mora has the same proud posture of Flamenco, floreos (isolated wrists rotations), heavy travel steps and some characteristic turns. From Arabic dance, Zambra Mora borrows undulations, shimmies and hip and chest circles.
