Egyptian Elementals Dance and Movement was founded in 2002 in response to my need to find a ‘home’ that would best represent – what was then – 22 years of experience with Egyptian dance – (now 36 years – my first professional performance was in 1980!)
I already had a clear concept of how the EED training would assist dancers by bringing depth and clarity to their technical training and invaluable cultural understanding to the movement and expression. The website content came together very quickly, as I was able to immediately categorize and publish many articles that I had already completed to assist my students with dance.
What was a lot more problematic and challenging was the simple logo….simple? really? How do you encapsulate something so profound in a graphic?….It was a long and tortuous process (more for the designer than me! lol), of to and froing, until I felt enough of the most important elements were represented. ‘It’s a bit busy for a logo’ was the designers response – ‘not ideal for ease of publishing’. Practical and pragmatic have never been my strongest suits, so personally satisfied that the most significant bases had been covered – (and much to the relief of the graphic artist!).. I finally signed off on the EED logo. Here is an article I wrote at that time to introduce the logo to the world.
