For many years, Jacqueline and her husband Ian have taken groups of her students (and, sometimes, their friends, families, partners, etc.) on a number of International Workshops. They vary from weekends to 2 weeks; and can be in any country where belly dancing is practised as a serious art form. These trips are mainly fun; it's a holiday! But it has a serious side - we have one or more intensive dance workshops, usually with an authentic local dance teacher; and we visit sites of cultural importance to our art form.
As a result of frequent and ongoing political and, occasionally, military, activities in many middle-eastern countries, a number of our trips in the past have been postponed or cancelled; and many of our students have indicated that they would like to have the same sort of trip, but without the risks inherent in staying in such countries for the whole time. We are now able to offer an alternative, based in a secure EU country in the Mediterranean; but providing 1 or 2 day trips as an option to places such as Cairo and Alexandria. Workshops etc. would still be provided by an authentic, reputable teacher, flown in from Egypt or wherever especially for that purpose.
As most people now prefer to book their flights online, to get the best bargain prices, we no longer offer flights as standard; but all guests will be met at the airport and transferred between the airport and accommodation. We are happy to advise on suitable flights, but cannot book them for you.
If you have a definite interest in such a trip, please take a few minutes to complete and send the following form to Jacqueline. Please be aware that trips only run if there are sufficient firm bookings to make them economically viable - the minimum group size is normally 6-8.
