Just when I thought I had completed the troupe's new choreography to Mustafa Amar's "Elsoud Ayounda" I learned there was a longer version after I watched a dancer at Cafe Bellie in Berkeley perform the piece. I had to scurry to add another ending. I think I spent and entire afternoon looking for the extended version. Turns out it was a song from the late '90 album "Nar al Hob". You have to check out the video version of the song. It's a kick!

I like the new ending better. Which reminds me to always check out a particular song before putting it together. Either way, we've got a few rehearsals before we perform the piece at the "Annual African American Breast Cancer Conference" on May 19th.
