Tamalyn Dallal

Oriental Dance teacher, writer and film maker

Dance with me, to one of my favorite songs from the 70's

4 class series, every Tuesday, 7-8:30pm CDT

4 lessons contained within one song's choreography:

"Sahara City" is a vintage song that Tamalyn has loved since the beginning of her dance career. 

July 7, "In the Beginning" Dancing the slow intro music that we usually don't dance to... But lets not leave the stage or screen empty. How to beautifully break rules. This part of the choreography builds up, shimmies to the violin, and more. Dynamics, passion and intensity.

July 14 "Traveling through Space" How to use space, and footwork, traveling steps, then adding this part to the previous weeks choreography. Greeting your audience, using eye contact and foot work.

July 21 "Many Aspects of the Ney" How to use airiness, in place and in space. We will add the new section to the previous parts of the choreography. Different ways the nay is used in Oriental music and how to express the nay through dance.

July 28 "What Happens when the song is the same, but the version is different" We will adapt to changes and keep the parts that don't change. Q/A and wrapping it all up. 

(Private lessons are also available)


4 week series. No individual classes. All classes are inter connected.  Series of 4 classes is $60.
