Ep 48. Soumaya MaRose: Dance in Everyday Life of Moroccan Diaspora Community

Iana Dance Podcast

What a mind-blowing conversation! Today I’m joined by Soumaya MaRose, born and raised as a Moroccan woman in Belgium.

She talks about her upbringing and experiencing dance in daily life of her community. We discuss the issues around shikhat dancing, and common mistakes belly dancers make on stage that actually can be seen as very vulgar behavior. Also, Soumaya shares invaluable insights into her experience within the festival world, and how she was received there as a native dancer participating in competitions. You also will hear the cutest story about how Mona El Said became her dance teachers without even knowing it, lol!

This interview will certainly bring you a range of emotions: from fun laughs to sad and deep realizations.
