Running a regular belly dance event is a stressful thing. With the recession in the UK ever tightening its grip I am always pleased to see people arrive and take their seats, join in with the workshops and enjoy the performers who travel for miles just to display their vision of the art-form that is belly dance.
Working together myself, Emma and Kitty strive to offer a belly dance event that offers more bang for your buck – we have a great venue, offer a workshop for people to join in with, show a DVD on the screens so that between performances there’s always something to look at when you’re chatting with friends and getting a drink from the bar and as always strive to showcase dancers both local and from further afield (no mean feat for a Sunday night) as well as vendors who will help you to achieve a full belly dance wardrobe.
Tonight (as ever) we were able to offer the most wonderful performances from accomplished performers including myself (I was pleased with my full-floor layback), Kitty, Kamara, Sundara, Carrie, Razia, a penultimate performance from host troupe Covert Bling and all the way from the Brazil, Elis (and please go watch her on her YouTube channel…….amazing!) (Apologies to those I cannot add links to, Julie and Cassie, Judi and Barbara please get some clips up of yourselves!)
Even though I may need to use a hair-brush as a pretend microphone the well oiled machine that is the Covert Bling team always ensures that night runs like clockwork.
And now it’s only another two months until the next Hipnotic event….if you’re in the UK and only a moment from the M4 then get yourself along on September 25th…….even if you’re not a belly dancer…. x
