L3- Gana El Hawa: 7 wks

Learn Abby's lyrical and melody driven choreography to the classic Gana El Hawa including finger cymbals.  

The seven week training plan features SL3 classes, Jamila format, and folkloric fusion. Clips of classic dancers of the early and mid 1900s are included.

 

The music is available on Suhaila's 1990 Ala Nar Blvd album.  Video instruction and choreography notes available separately in the PPV section.  (This is a version of Abby's JL4 choreography.)  

 

Note:  The training plan is 7 weeks, but the choreography subscription is available in 1 month increments.  The training plans were designed as a means to keep students training every week with a variety of classes following a traditional 8 week rotation of material.  You can do this training plan without learning the choreography, or you can learn the choreography without the full training plan.  You can adapt the training plans as needed.  Be creative.  Some approaches might be:

  • Purchase the choreography PPV for a second month so that you have the video available throughout the full training plan.
  • Purchase the choreography PPV for only one month, but double up the choreography assignments so they can be covered in one month.  
  • Learn the choreography all at once and then use the sections assigned per week as a guide for review.

Of course, the video has a lot of value.  Written choreography notes only tell a certain percentage of the story.  After you learn the sequencing, moves, and steps in a choregraphy, we recommend going back and relearning from the video again.  The second time, you notice even more!
