In the first half we encounter Helwa Bellydance Company performing ‘Bellydance, A True Story’, the journey of Kay Taylor, and inspirational national  figure in Bellydance, from the streets of Cairo to glamorous cabaret. With influences from the Pharaonic era through to the present day, the rich history, colourful costumes and sheer variety of Egyptian dance styles is sure to dazzle.
 
In the second half we discover Johara Dance Company performing ‘Mind, Body, Spirit’ a modern interpretation of Bellydance in its pure form and in fusion with other dances.

Celebrated choreographer Josephine Wise has created a world of excitement, humour and passion.
