The Arab Quarter at Hoxton Hall

The Arab Quarter

Sunday 17 February 2013 at 7.30pm, Hoxton Hall,
130 Hoxton Street, London N1 6SH

Doors open at 7.00pm

The Arab Quarter at Hoxton Hall is set to move hearts and send minds racing with its punchy, dramatic and eloquent narration taken from Palace Walk by Naguib Mahfouz. Palace Walk is part of The Cairo Trilogy, and the epic master piece of the Nobel Prize-winning writer. As yet Naguib Mahfouz is the only Arab writer to win this prestigious literary award. Scenes rich in atmosphere and cultural significance will fill Hoxton Hall and create a special magic. Around these passages will be enthralling and highly authentic Arabian musical and dance entertainment provided by members of The Arab Quarter Band and a host of fine oriental dancers, colourfully costumed and interpreting Arabian music of immense soul and beauty.

NEW Beginner’s Bellydance Classes – KELBURN

I am very pleased to announce that I will be teaching a Beginner’s Bellydance class at the Victoria University Rec Centre in trimester 2.

You do not need to be a current student or member of the Rec Centre to take part in these classes.

Classes will be held Wednesdays, 4-5pm. The first 6 week block starts on Weds 13 July and runs to Weds 17 August.

No experience is necessary. All are welcome.

Costs are $10 per class, or $54 for all 6 classes, paid at the first class. CDs with music from the class will be available for $5.

There is a Facebook invite here, with further details. If you are unable to RSVP on the event page, please contact me to let me know if you are coming.

On another dance related note, I am currently arranging a hafla for the Sirroco Middle Eastern Dancers. The hafla is a wonderful opportunity for our Advanced and Beginners Classes to perform. I hope to have a venue confirmed soon, and we are looking at a date in late August. The hafla will include performances from other local dance groups (who will be announced once they are 100% confirmed). Current students, friends, and family will be invited to the event.
