With a name taken from the Arabic word for "rhythm," Studio Iqaat is driven by a single goal: introducing others to the musical drum culture of North Africa and the Middle East. On the studio's stage, a team of adept instructors lead small groups in classes for traditional drums such as the doumbek, riqq, or tar. Classes may focus on a range of genres—such as Turkish traditional or Arabic pop—but all progress from basic rhythms to more advanced techniques, such as drumming only with the power of your mind. In each class, a regimen of exercises prepares students to accompany dancers. On the other side of the coin, a dance floor welcomes students to practice moving to those rhythms in belly-dancing classes. Studio Iqaat's operations aren't limited to classes, however; the center also operates as a performance and recital space, provides instrument rentals, and serves as a venue for parties and photo shoots.
