If you didn't book a ticket For the 'Dance Queens of the Nile' at the Chequer Mead Theatre last night- you missed out a absolute treat of a show!
Last night's show was one of the best I've done both with and without the Ramzy Dance Company. The venue was homely and filled with a brilliantly supportive and appreciative audience who were absolutely buzzing about the music, the dancing, the choreographies, the costume and the whole shebang!
Of course, there are always tiny things that could be tightened and improved and certainly, myself and the RDC girls are very self critical when it comes to our dancing, but I felt it was near spot on as a whole show. We had in addition to our regular company members, a troupe from Portugal lead by the extremely talented Judite Dilshad- such a lovely group of girls who danced a really cool choreography of 'Sett in Stone' from Hossam's 'Egypt Unveiled' album.
So now I am enjoying a well needed rest and relaxing on a perfectly sunny Sunday afternoon!
Next up is Essex where I will be dancing during the evening concert on the 16th of July (book at www.hossamramzy.com) and Hossam and Serena's East Grinstead Workshop on the 6th of August at the Chequer Mead (book via www.chequermead.org.uk) - I will see you there!

Just 2 weeks now until the big show on the 25th of June at the Chequer Mead Theatre in East Grinstead! We're all working really hard at rehearsals both together and in our own time, plus the promotion and preparation for the Dance Queens of the Nile. It's fantastic to have another chance to perform in this amazing show and I now know I'll be performing the duet with Lianna again, which is a real treat.
We really want this to work as we know we have a brilliant show on our hands and would love to share it with others. We've been promoting the show like mad, spreading the good word! Even if you came to watch the show before, this time will be tighter and with even more energy plus, the show has an additional dance number by a guest troupe all the way from Portugal.
We're hoping for a lot of local support- I know this is something quite unique for the good folk of East Grinstead! However, I'm thrilled to say most of my students will be attending and I hope I do them proud on the night.
