Display of feminine power: A formal course (Level 1)
by Nanci Traynor

Tuesday 7:30-9pm

Oct 5,12

This comprehensive course will jump start the student into the mysteries of Tribal Belly Dance of North Africa.

The student will learn the most important dance moves in order to lead in a circle. The beauty of this form of dance is it empowers the student to awaken their feminine energy in a community format. Hand, eye and body signals are used without words to improvise together as one.

Nanci will take the student on a journey of rhythms based on Jamila Salimpour’s research of zill patterns. The use of zill’s (Turkish term for finger cymbals) as a musical accompaniment to dance is documented to be 1500 years old. Each dance step of North Africa has it’s own zill pattern that goes along with it.

Through Nanci’s own personal pre-historical research she has theorized that the tribal dances hold the knowledge of our ancestors.

She feels this knowledge has been hidden from the public eye for a few thousand years. She also feels that this knowledge holds the key for building stronger communities that make the human environment a better place to live.

Course fee: RM425
*Includes zills

About the teacher:
Nanci is American-born Irish hailing from San Francisco. She is a fierce woman who expresses her feminine power through a dance form called Tribal Style Belly Dance. This dance form is born from the non-ruling class of Nomadic Tribes of North Africa, India and Central Asia. She mostly taught herself how to dance, but her dance lineage can be traced to Jamila Salimpour’s student Rossah. Nanci Traynor, a semi-nomad herself, encourages people to be self-sufficient, empowered and non-judgmental of others. She has proven that the human mind can manifest anything as long as the intention is clear, positive and benefits the surrounding life force. She spent a year in isolation on a cliff in Southern India. During her self study under the stars the universe was mapped out and translated through movement. Her greatest performance achievement to date was an invitation to perform in Lahore, Pakistan. She was awarded best performance and costume.
