This family series welcomes all in a participatory workshop focusing on the sung Arabic poetry (al muwashahat) of medieval Al Andalus. In each session, Bay Ridge teaching artists multi-instrumentalist Zafer Tawil and Dancer Nicole Macotsis will lead participants in identifying the rhythm, singing and understanding lyrics, and dancing basic steps to one of the most commonly known muwashahat in the US, Lamma Bada Yatathanna (When She Began to Sway).

Open to all, no experience needed. Drop-ins welcome.
