Morwenna's background is in the Eastern Arabic countries namely the Levant. But she also has an excellent background with the Mahmoud Reda Egyptian style.
As we build our repertoire to perform we will also be building our literature for you to grow to outstanding levels in the dance. We hope you will like our books and leave comments for us as this is the way we grow. I have lived this dance form since 1973 and am still growing and learning. I owe my success to this point to such great as Mahmoud Reda, Egypt, Amani of Lebanon, Yousry Sharif, Egypt, Elena Lentine, NYC. Plus the late Ibrahim (Bobby) Farrah, NYC, and the late La Meri of MA. These are just a few that have molded my career. There are in reality too many to mention. Including students on both coasts who have created such wonderful careers. Above all I thank my husband Walid who is Lebanese and a musician for his constant support and approval.
