"When a great dancer makes her entrance, she parades around the stage to greet her audience. When a really great dancer makes her entrance, she does it twice" - Bert Balledine

Mejanse (spelled many ways), is a term used to described the opening music where the dancer creates her grand entrance on stage as part of her show. In this workshop, Jessican Hanan Sultan will guide us through the story of Mejanse, what it entails, and teach a choreography to demonstrate the art and energy of Mejanse. This two-part workshop begins with a veil entrance section and concludes in the final workshop after lunch with completing the choreography! Please bring veil!
