Preparations are now fully underway for the upcoming 'Dance Queens of the Nile' show booked for the 25th of June at the Chequer Mead Theatre in East Grinstead. This will be the 2nd outing for our show which debuted at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London back in February. I'm more excited about this one because it's on home ground and hopefully many of my students will be able to watch what I think is an amazing show- we got a fantastic review in the belly dance specialist magazine, 'Mosaic'.
Above is a photo from the Bloomsbury show-the 2nd half of which pays homage to the 'Dance Queens' of Egyptian belly dance such as Samya Gamel, Naima Akef and, as I'm attemping to portray above, Taheya Karaoke. Not sure if I'll be dancing to the band for the Chequer Mead show, but it's a complimentary contrast to the pharonic style representing the ancient and infamous Queens of Egypt in the 1st half.
If I've tempted you to come along then I would suggest that you buy you ticket now as I have a feeling it's going to be a popular show!
