OMG! What a workshop! As usual, Souhail didn't disappoint! My brain is a little rattled, but otherwise it was a great workshop.
It amazes me how misinformed we dancers are in how we should move. We may be drilled to within an inch of our lives with technique, posture, tempos, layering, yada, yada, yada... but how do we apply it all to the music we hear? Ugh! I need to retrain both my brain and body now. I don't know whether to hug Souhail for this revelation or to punch his lights out! Like I don't have ENOUGH to do already!!! :o)
All kidding aside. There is a rumor he may be back again in Phoenix in about 3 months. PLEASE keep him in mind. He is one instructor who is SOOOOOOO worth the price of admission!
(PS) Thanks to Elissa for making it happen! And thanks for Gary for allowing us into his fabulous home! Why didn't I see a blender going???
Sun, November 5, 2006 - 5:41 PMWas it the same as it was last year when he and Bahia (spelling) came?
Even if it was, it's still worth taking again. Jeff couldn't stop talking about the drum workshops. Sohail blew his mind the same as he did mine last year!
Mendocino Dance camp, here we come...
Sun, November 5, 2006 - 9:42 PMSouhail is such an awsome instructor (I thought I knew how to play the doumbec, what was I thinking.....!?) He is a very positive, generous and enthusiatic person, his workshops were fun and yet you worked very hard at the same time. I will definitely take his next workshops here and find a way to go to "band camp"!
