Studio Sharqui is a Bellydance leader in Montreal and one of Quebec’s most renowned Oriental Bellydance school and dance studio. Professionalism and success are its trademark!
It was called ” Bellydance ” we now, gracefully like to refer to it as “Oriental Dance” or at least “Oriental Bellydance”
It’s origins are Middle-Eastern, more precisely Egyptian. At the beginning it was deeply rooted in the tradition or folklore, but like any other dance discipline, this art has transformed and modernized, to take the different styles that we now know.
This One thousand and one years old art, gracefully shapes the body, giving it strength and sensuality. This art form combines technique, creativity and musicality, making it a complete form of exercise, that emphasizes on the coordination bringing out harmony in the body.
If your goal is to become a professional dancer or if you simply choose it as an exercise, you might also discover that it brings comfort and happiness to the Soul!
Studio Sharqui offers a complete Bellydance training for women, men and now, for children!. Our goal is to provide students with a strong oriental dance technique and equally high artistic qualities: Training, support, leadership, motivation and advice, will enable them to pursue their own goals and aspirations:
• Learning for fun, pleasure, and leisure…
• Learning with pleasure and performing as a soloist or in a group, as an “amateur”
• Taking part in our projects, with Les Sharkiss (performing as a soloist, duettist or in a group as semi-professional or professional dancer)
Completely authentic, stylized and definitely modern !
Sharqi… The authentic style typically seen in Cairo night clubs ! ??The sharqi style, while drawing its inspiration from Egyptian folklore, has evolved throughout the past decades. It has adapted to the needs of performers, musicians, choreographies and modern staging. Studio Sharqui is also constantly keeping in touch with new trends in costuming for stage and current top designers.
Shaabi and Folklore…
We are adapting authentic elements of the Egyptian people (such as moods and gestures) and of Egyptian folklore to provide dynamic entertainment. We are using the elements of the repertoire while taking into account contemporary expression and creation criteria. Elements of the costume can also be adapted but never betrayed, to accommodate modern staging.
