Open Day & Bazaar

As part of our aim to promote Middle Eastern Dance to the general public, we will once again host an Open Day on Easter Monday.  There will be an Open Stage to give all attendees an opportunity to perform prepared pieces or improv off the cuff, costumed or casual. And we will have a range of stalls selling costumes, accessories, and dance and beauty related items.  More information for those wishing to perform or sell will be added in the New Year - watch this space!
