Featuring Saffron's pre-professional and professional dancers, Maqsoum provides a forum for company members to push themselves by deepening their relationship with the art form, refining movement dynamics, strengthening advanced technique, and expanding range of artistic expression.
In addition to supporting each dancers’ individual growth, there is significant emphasis on learning to move in harmony as a group. Dancers are trained in the use of a wide range of props, including veil, cane, and zills, and wings. The company performs to a wide variety of music, incuding from Oum Kalthoum, shaabi, drum solos, beledi, and even Pink Floyd.
