Ranya reflections


"El Said" means "the happy." Mona has a sense of fun and humor when she performs, but also has a lot of deep wisdom and energy. She taught me some really important lessons about indigenous Egyptian dance, and gave me a sense of what's been lost in the Oriental style of the modern era. Luckily, we can find our way back to that cultural, indigenous style through the baladi - and still kick it up a notch for the stage!
