In 2009 We put together a group of 8 friends called Shahrazad Dance Company . Armed with a Saidi choreography Warda learned in Egypt from Ahmed Shalaby of Reda Troupe, a few combinations by Momo Kadous and a Shaaby choreography by Lubna Emam, Warda Shahrazd created a full show. She was new enough to the dance and had only been to Egypt 🇪🇬 twice to train at Ahlan Wa Sahlan - أهْلاً وَسَهْلاً . Some Arizona teachers told me I had no business starting a troupe and performing at such a big festival. But the dancers wanted to dance, and a troupe brings so much energy, color and joy to the festival- that not going through with it was never an option.
The producer of the festival Ashraf Elgamal gave me my start as a troupe leader. Our team this year has achieved to prepare an exciting show with surprises we think the guests will love ❤️ can’t wait to see you all!
(Link in comments to our first Saidi show)
When Dancers are new to Egyptian dance and history, they often over simplify things into neat categories forgetting the complex history and inter woven historical complexity that enacted on the dance forms. Ghawazee is one of the foundation’s of Egyptian dance style although they themselves were not Egyptians originally. After their escape from the palaces of Cairo a group called Banat Mazin made their way to upper Egypt. They were often referred to as horses, in reference to them being ‘Conquerers of the Hearts’ of those they dance for. For this reason they sometimes incorporated the steps and sticks of the Saidi people, to conquer their hearts! In the same way the Egyptian Superstar sahar Samara uses Iraqi in her entrance song, not because Egyptians don’t have their own steps, but to celebrate the audiences culture! Please read my book, The Origins and History of Bellydance’ with Dr. Hassan Khalil, available on Amazon Kindle, to find out more fascinating facts ALL of which are come if from Egyptian PhDs and dancers!
What a wonderful night with such beautiful memories! Thank you Cassandra Richelle for allowing us to perform at your student recital! Everyone Raqed!

Don’t miss Hawa Ensemble at Layaly Shahrazad Events this Saturday along with a number of wonderful performers! This Saturday at Al Omda Tempe with myself and co-host Ustaz Rami !

Hawa Ensemble is an Arabic music group founded by dancers for dancers.

Stephanie Gayle was originally inspired by a trio of female percussionists (Susu, TerriAnne, and Amina) after watching them perform at Mendocino Middle Eastern Music Camp. This sparked an idea that smoldered for years before finally igniting through building friendships and connections. Near the end of 2021, 4 dancers with musical backgrounds joined together to embark on a new way of expressing themselves through music.

Why Hawa?
Hawa means wind or breeze or more poetically: love; not just any kind of love, but that feeling of being swept off your feet with new love. Not only were we swept off our feet with Arabic music and dance, we hope you, our dancers or audience members, will be swept up, too!

Our founding members consist of Kira Shane (keyboard, costumes), Rachel Ali (vocals, marketing), Samantha Lynn (clarinet, percussion, management), and Stephanie Gayle (percussion, ideas person). We also collaborate with other local musicians and community events in the Phoenix, AZ area.
