    "Ahla Leila" is from the CD by the same name by Leila HAddad. I choreographed it for the "Inner City Children's Touring Dance Co." in Miami, 1996. It was featured in the ground breaking theatre show "Emerald Dreams" in Miami Beach, 1997. I brought it back to life in China, 2011. Veil opening, zils, and each dancer does an improvised solo. Lots of skills gained in a 14 min. dance.

In other towns, she films 17 dances, has an encounter with hippos at the base of the Blue Nile, and travels to a holy Muslim city with ancient dances and customs all their own.
