In this excerpt we talk about something really crucial for all of us, the value of failure. “If we succeed at everything we do, we probably haven’t set the bar high enough”.
In this section, Mahin talks about teaching at Cairo Caravan 2013. Her workshops were Bellydance Geometry and City Girl Country Girl (contrasting Sha’abi and Belladi).
In her teaching, Mahin emphasis strong technique and understanding the music and where it comes from. She explains the importance of making conscious choices when departing from traditional movements associated with the music.
