Saidi Kapow with Rachel Bond – NBF17
April 8 @ 9:15 am - 10:45 am
SAIDI KAPOW! with RACHEL BOND
Rachel’s powerful Saidi workshop is completely different from any other!
Rachel is here to share her favourite rarely-taught men’s moves, from poses and ways of holding the stick through to dynamic combinations that we will put together into a short choreography. Throw in some quintessential Tahtib (‘fighting’) moves, and your Saidi dancing will never be the same!
Bring: A stick, preferably the men’s style assaya with no hook (some available for loan)
Level: Beyond Beginners (some stick experience useful)
