Wow-what a week! The first ever Rotherfield Hafla, themed to the amazing music of Hossam Ramzy, has been a huge success, running smoothly from start to finish; a big hit with an enthusiatic and appreciative audience including very special guests, Hossam and Serena Ramzy.
The choreographies performed were outstanding, being treated to some incredible solos from the sensational Phoenix-Sahar, fellow student and up and coming star, Lianna 'Chicky' Greene and my teacher, mentor and inspiration, Serena. All the dancers involved made the evening extra special with their wonderful routines, obviously having put a great deal of effort and practise into the choreographies.
As ever, my original teacher Joyce was present in support, this time doing a briiliant job as MC and beaming away, making performing much less nerve wracking for everyone, particularly for me!
Finally, El Hanim, (the Rotherfield Group), ended the show with a spectacular Saidi stick dance (another fantastic choreography by Serena and my favourite to dance), a great way to end an outstanding evening of entertainment- roll on next year!
