Azeri workshop

Azerbaijani folk dances are very colorful from the viewpoint of themes and these types are – labor, ceremony, household, heroism, sport, chorus game.

Azerbaijani folk dance as a rule consists of 3 parts: the 1st part is speedy, dance on circle; the 2nd part is lyrical, as if the dancer frees on spot (“dances slowly”), the body is sharp and is strong and proud; the 3rd part – again dance on circle, ceremonial and with big emotional ardour.

The dances of male and female differ from each other but these days women can dance as male as well. The development of female dance is conditioned with costume: a long skirt defines the tender movement of feet, the dance is focused entirely on used technique of upper parts of arm and corpse (shoulder, head, mimics of face etc). Today females wear short skirt as well for dancing like men by technique of feet. The main feature of male dance is technique of feet. The dancer stands quickly on the tiptoe, and goes down ion knees, etc.

The musical pace of Azerbaijani dances is – 6/8 and 3/4. Dances are mainly performed by folk dance people dances: the trio of zournas (2 zourna və sazanda trios), these dances are accompanied by (tar, kamancha) etc.

In this workshop we are going to learn very basic of steps in 1 hour and then we can have a short break in between, after the break we can put the moves ans steps together and make a nice and simple choregraphy :)
