Emily is teaching and performing at JamBallah NW! A grand three-day celebration, every second weekend of August in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
JamBallah NW debuted in August 2011, and has been showcasing the substantial talent of the Pacific Northwest as well as bringing in master instructors from across the United States and beyond. From glittering pros to dance-curious explorers, JamBallah NW is a place to share and refine techniques, make new friends, try something new, and gain inspiration. This project is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

Relax into the music while rocking the zills. We will learn and drill some standard and not-so-standard cymbal patterns with accompanying movements pulling from various styles of bellydance. We will focus on playing the cymbals while coordinating our hands and arms, committing to full body movements that are complemented by playing zills. We’ll work with drills and combos then put them together for a short drill choreography that can be used for later practice and inspiration for your personal repertoire.
We will start with a warm up for hands and arms, then go into basic patterns with variations. We’ll put it all together within combos and some choreography.
