Do you want to learn how to play the zills (a.k.a. finger cymbals) or improve your zill playing skills? Well, this is the dance to do it! Ragheb is a song by the sexy Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbe. It's is a mid-tempo song to which it is super fun to dance & play zills. Schadia choreographed a sassy zill dance that incorporates Ms Haifa's signature pouty style and playful nature. It also keeps the same zill pattern throughout, allowing you to learn that pattern and learn how to maintain the pattern while doing this fun & easy choreography. This dance is shown in the video below performed by the Nazeem Alsabah Dancers, but could be just as well be performed as a solo. To get a feel for the song & Haifa's style, check out her music video for Ragheb.
