Our 2013 Workshop Programme is now live!

Visit http://celebratingdance.co.uk/workshops.htm to take a look at the fabulous collection of workshops available at this year’s festival.

Want to be challenged, learn something completely new or maybe you just want some new tricks to try out the next time you get up to bop at haflah? I think we’ve got all that covered this year, in fact I had serious problems picking out which workshops to use as our teachers provided us with so many brilliant things to choose from! 🙂

Are you a member of Facebook? If so check out our new Facebook Group where you can ask questions about the festival and talk to others who are going or thinking of going.


Our stars in action!

One of the things I really look forward to each year is the festival’s Gala Show on Saturday night; wonderful dancing by talented dancers. It’s lovely to immerse myself in the atmosphere, the presence and the beauty of our instructors’ performances. Their artistry always takes my breath away!

Here are just two of this year’s Guest Artists in performance:

Artemisia performing her exquisite, soulful and beautiful Fan Veil number.


Sophie Armoza spreading the warmth with her lovely rendition of Helwa Sabaa followed by some simply breath-taking sagat.


There are more videos to come so that you can enjoy some incredible dancing which will whet your appetite for this year’s show.

Meanwhile – enjoy! 🙂

No internet

Hi everyone, just a quick message to let you know that we currently have no internet at home (yay for the library!). It will take about a week to fix things, so please bear with us as it will take longer than normal to reply to PMs and emails. Please remember that you can always call us – 07890 287153.
