Hilal Dance

European based Egyptian Contemporary dance artist Suraya Hilal will be presenting workshops in Hilal Dance®. Master teacher and performer Hilal, draws inspiration from her cultural roots in Cairo and is informed by global contemporary dance practice.

Workshops will be accompanied by ultra talented percussionist Marianthe (Manthy) Loucataris.

Suraya, over a twenty year period, has refined and re-developed many of the traditional forms of movement in Egyptian/Arab culture and has given them a modern presence through the totality of her work which came to be known as Hilal Dance® during the year 2000.

Through her innovative theatrical work Suraya has transitioned one of the world's oldest cultures into the contemporary dance world.

Hilal's workshops offer a vibrant introduction to Hilal Dance. Hilal Dance welcomes new dancers, both men and women, from a range of dance backgrounds.
