Magency - The Oriental Dance Entrance Routine: Rhythms, Technique, Choreography is created by the US-based Oriental Dance star Shahrzad to teach the Egyptian-style dance technique applied to the genre of magency.
Magency is the Oriental Dance entrance piece that showcases a dancer s skill and signature style using an array of iconic Arabic rhythms and a powerful melodic line. It features a variety of belly dance styles, from modern Oriental dance with its dynamic turns and step combinations to folk dance vignettes and lyrical soulful improvisation.
With her extensive dance training in Egypt, experience of performing at the top venues in Cairo, and teaching Egyptian style belly dance internationally, Shahrzad is an amazing instructor sought for her supportive and generous teaching style, clarity of instruction, and attention to detail and cultural nuances.
Working with the four classic rhythms most commonly used in magency - malfouf, maksoum, samai and saidi, Shahrzad teaches moves, combinations and choreography for each rhythm with the focus on capturing the authentic feeling of Egyptian dance, whose texture echoes cultural motifs and moods historically associated with each of these rhythms.
Each section opens with the introduction for each rhythm by percussionist Marshall Bodiker. He breaks down the structure of each rhythm, adresses its origins, and demonstrates typical speed for each rhythm as used in a magency. Shahrzad teaches Technique, Combinations and Choreography sections for each rhythm, and once all choreographic sections are completed, she puts them into a beautiful magency choreography perfect for practice and performance.

Each rhytm section begins with a rhytm breakdown by the drummer, followed by the demonstration of applied dance technique and combos. These are broken down and illustrated by Shahrzad which makes it easy to transition into the sections with mini choreographies which are later combined into an entire entrance piece.
There is much to learn and the advanced student will not be bored. Any beginner with isolation basic experience can challenge themselves with this very elegant technique and choreography.
