They both very beautifully blend the Egyptian Folkloric dance traditions with Raqs Sharki (Oriental Dance/Belly Dance).With their extensive experience in teaching, choreographing and producing theatrical dance shows, Atef and Magda's workshops is an excellent opportunity for dancers who wish to improve their performance skills, learn new techniques and increase their knowledge about Egyptian culture and dance. The workshop is open to all levels of dancers who want to learn authentic Egyptian dance.Each is available for private or semi-private lessons during the weekend and throughout their stay in Austin. ABOUT ATEF & MAGDA FARAG: In 1959, Mr. Mahmoud Reda, his brother Ali Reda and his sister-in-law Farida Fahmy co-founded the Reda Troupe in Egypt. It was the first Egyptian dance company to record Egyptian folk songs and dances from many different and remote regions of Egypt and perform them on stage. The Reda Troupe became world famous with many followers. Their work has shaped and influenced what is known today as Oriental Dance (Raks Sharki). Many of the Reda troupe members became master teachers themselves teaching in Egypt, Europe and the USA. In June 2006, Mr. Atef Farag and his wife, Magda, who have been with the Reda troupe since 1975, will share with us their wealth of knowledge and experience in Egyptian Folkloric & Oriental Dance. They will teach us their own signature, world-renowned choreographies that beautifully blend the earthy ethnic with the more stylized Oriental dance.Atef Farag and his wife Magda have been dance trainers with the Reda Troupe in Egypt since 1993. Atef has also been training and directing the Egyptian Folkloric Troupe at the American University in Cairo since 1989. Not only does he choreograph & teach, but he also produces the whole show from costuming to music, lighting and set design. His dance troupe has consistently won 1st and 2nd places in national competitions. In addition to teaching in Egypt to native and foreign students, Mr. Atef taught workshops internationally in the USA, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and France. Since 1995, he has been teaching Oriental and Folkloric dance at the Arabic Language Institute in Cairo. His dance style is an innovative yet very authentic blend of the folkloric/ethnic dances and the stylized 'Raks Sharki'. Using the experience he gained teaching students of all nationalities and performing all over the world, Atef has evolved into a world master in Middle Eastern dance.Mr Atef Farag and his wife Magda traveled with the Reda Troupe to hundreds of countries in the Arab world, Europe, the Americas and the Far East performing as soloists. Atef also trained with the National Folkloric Dance Troupe from 1970 to 1974. Atef and his Troupe (the American University Folkloric Troupe) presented authentic Egyptian dance at 45 international folk dance festivals all over the world including Germany, France, Spain, Turkey, Italy and the USA. He participated in the North Carolina International Folk Festival "Folkmoot" in 1995 and 2000 and performed at Epcot Center in Florida.ABOUT THE TEXAS BELLY DANCE SHOWDOWN: (formerly known as the Miss HOT Seminar Contest) The contest is part of the HOT Seminar Friday night showcase.
