Workshops with Lorna of Cairo

Well, it's Ramadan and that means that the very wonderful, super-talented amazing dancer Lorna of Cairo is back in the UK for a few weeks!

Lorna has been working in Cairo as a bellydancer for a few years now, and before she went she was teaching hundreds of women from all across Scotland - including me - to bellydance. 

I have the pleasure of organising workshops for Lorna while she is here. She is on tour across the UK, teaching and dancing, and on Saturday 4 September she will be teaching in Edinburgh! If you're a dancer, do you best to get to these workshops - you'll learn a lot and have a great time.

Workshops with Lorna of Cairo in Edinburgh: Saturday 4th September 2010 at The Club, Jewel and Esk College, 24 Milton Road East, Edinburgh EH15 2PP
Both workshops are suitable for all levels, but not for complete beginners.

Noon – 2pm: Core Cairo

Five key moves to make you dance like an Egyptian – plus a few more tips to Egypt-ify your performance.

2.30pm – 4.30pm: Oum Kalthoum – what every dancer should know.

Oum Kaltoum has a unique place in the Egyptian heart. How can dancers make the most of her songs and reflect the reverence? Lorna will use Oum Kaltoum favourites to help you with expression and interpretation. This workshop will be dancing, not just talking – and afterwards you won’t go wrong!

Each workshop costs £22, or book both for £40. Numbers are limited. Please book your place before Friday 27 August.

Book Now!: To book your space send a cheque, made out to E Alexandra, to Elspeth Alexandra, 32 Claremont Road, Edinburgh EH6 7NH. Please be sure to include your email address and phone number.
