June 15th "Create a Choreography" workshop 

 

I have 1 space left on this workshop - ideal for any dancers wishing to work on their own dance development and possibly work towards a solo/duet or even just get some tips for how to remember/break down a choreography to make it easier to learn.

 

This workshop will offer lots of tips and advice from my 12 years dance experience and having choreographed over 100 dances for obth my classes and my solo dancing.

 

Don't be scared of choreography, it has many advantages and isn't too hard to do once we break it down into manageable chunks!  Come along and join us!

 

£10 payable in advance.  Workshop is at Beoley Village Hall 3.30 - 5pm

 

 

Drumming workshop #4 with Fulya 

 The fabulous Fulya isn't just amazing with fans, she is also a brilliant drummer and has previously taught us 3 workshops on some of the Arabic rhythms used in belly dance.  

 

Join us to learn more rhythms and practise those already learnt, as we build on our knowledge of dum & teks!

 

 Saturday 27th July 2 - 4pm @ Beoley Village Hall £20 payable in advance to secure your space

Some drums available to borrow - please enquire at time of booking

Dancer of the Month for March...

is the cheeky Corinne!

Corinne has been dancing in my Sunday class and she always arrived with a smile on her face and a positive and fun attitude to her dancing, but also likes to know how a move is broken down and isn't afriad to ask questions, which I love!

 Well done Corinne it's lovely having you in our class

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Asda VIP guest!


Asda were asking for nominations of a 'local hero' to open their new store in Redditch, and my hubby and some of my dancers nominated me due to my fund raising at our haflas over the years.  Following this I got a call from Asda press office asking me to open the store! I was so excited, and really grateful to everyone who had taken the time to nominate me.

I opened the store on Monday 9th November, it was mad, there were hoards of shoppers there queuing hours before it was due to open! There was a real 'buzz' of excitement amongst staff and shoppers, and it was an honour to cut the ribbon and open the new store!
