Middle Eastern Dancing

Filed under: summer reading — Tags: — SCPL Teens @ 9:52 pm

This summer the library hosted two Middle Eastern Dance classes. Teens learned dance styles from countries like Iran, Turkey, Egypt, and Morocco. They also learned to play rhythms on the zills, or finger cymbals, and some Arabic words and phrases.

The Times-Picayune captured the class at East Regional Library on video!
