This blog has my observations, as a Scottish Bellydancer, about adjusting to life, work and performing in Cairo, Egypt; the place, the people, the culture, the music and of course the dance and bellydance scene here in this crazy city.

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. I've danced and taught belly dancing professionally since 1997.
I performed professionally in Cairo, Egypt from 2006-2016.
Currently based in UK and available for workshops/performances internationally.
I really hope you enjoy my Blog as much as I enjoy writing it..... please feel free to subscribe to it via email or leave a comment or even email me with your thoughts.
I lived in Egypt for 10 years as a dancer there (2006-2016). In Cairo I had regular contracts at the Nile Pharaohs boats, Fairmont Nile City Hotel and Nile Maxim boat in addition to dancing at many weddings, parties, bars and clubs.
I am now based in Scotland, U.K. and travel internationally to teach and perform. If you would like to me come and teach in your area or perform at a wedding/party... Just let me know!
