I had a a fantastic time at Saqarah last night, a monthly bellydance hafla and showcase based in London, along with fellow 'Uska Darites' Ann, Caroline and Debbie.
We were treated to some beautiful and inspiring routines in an enthusiastic and welcoming atmosphere, both from keen amateurs and top professionals. We even got a free bag and a slice of cake! (not something offered on a regular basis, I gather- Saqarah were celebrating 2 years of successful showcases.)
What I really enjoyed last night was being a member of the audience. I love dancing and performing but I also like to just sit back and enjoy great entertainment and I wasn't dissappointed at Saqarah.
I will definately be returning in the future as both a punter and a performer-It was my first visit to Saqarah but it will certainly not be my last!
