About this taqsim video......
A taqsim is the part of the musical piece when one instrument is featured. In this song, it is the accordion toward the end of the song. Taqsims normally done improvisationally, but of course, in a group setting like ours, it should have some kind of planning. The main elements of this taqsim movement are:
The poses at the end will all vary, just pick your favorite one. Some dancers will be standing, some may be bending at the knees. Some may leaning inward and those in the front center may be squatting down at the floor or taking a knee (but pretty : ) The main idea is come to a tight group (sisters!) and pose : )
