jomdance-science, that is the quintessence of a life for oriental dance.
Said el Amir combines attention to detail from traditional folklore to the avant-garde with scientific knowledge from his (master's) studies. He imparts his knowledge through a solid theoretical background and more than 30 years of practice with a large portion of wonderful humor, which makes teaching with him not only extremely valuable, but also a pleasure.
I have known Said el Amir since 1987 and since then I have expected that from him: dance, science and history combined.
This curious boy and his talent; it is no wonder that we see and find him today in the place of the dance teacher and researcher.
Said el Amir, the man with a heart and a loyal soul to oriental dance, has brought together with jomdance-science what has long belonged together. That makes me proud.
