Planet Egypt and Celebrating Dance - Mini UK tour 2011

This October I traveled together with the lovely Queenie of Belgium to the UK (by train! first time for me), for a quick stop performing in London at Anne White's monthly showcase Planet Egypt and for teaching and performing at Afra al Kahira's Celebrating Dance festival in Torquay.

Eurostar - Bringing us to the UK and back in a jiffy!
I had a great time in London, happy to be back at Planet Egypt and loved the new decorations and the audience. Here's a clip of the performance night, check out the solo snippets at 01:34 and 6:19 and the drum solo duet with Queenie at 08:04 :)

We had a fantastic time at Afra Al Kahira's Celebrating Dance in Torquay as well. Enjoyed the shows, the audience, the great organization, the good food, the lovely atmosphere, the workshops, the quality time spent with very dear dance friends AND most of all the participants' overwhelming enthusiasm :)

After the Saturday show
Zills  Rhythms workshop - 30 sets of zills! *RING*
PS: Am very happy to announce I've been invited to perform and teach again at the next edition of Celebrating Dance ( 26-28 October 2012 ), yay, thank you Afra and John! :) Hope to see you all there too!
