Surprise Edinburgh workshop! Sun 7th Feb

Wasn't planning to come to UK for a holiday... But January is always a quiet month in the entertainment and I saw that the temperature in Cairo was similar to Edinburgh, so I decided to come home and visit family and friends for a couple of weeks! 

While I am here, any excuse to dance, right?! 

So...... Why not come along to my workshops?

Sunday 7th Feb
Times still TBC. (But in the afternoon!) 
Lothian Dance Academy, 2 Rosefield Avenue Lane, Portobello, EH15 1AX

Workshop 1-Lorna's Cairo Technique. Dance along to new tunes as well as classics and learn Lorna's latest top moves from Cairo. Technique, musicality, attitude- a bit of everything really, but mainly LOTS of dance! 

Workshop 2- One Tune, Four dance styles. Lorna will help us find 4 completely different ways of dancing to one piece of music. We will look at musical interpretation and Lorna will give lots of suggestions for improvisation. 

Open level (but not suitable for complete beginners!) 

Workshop 1 £30
Workshop 1&2 £50
(Apologies but it is not currently possible to book for only workshop 2!) 

To book your places please contact or by Facebook message. Payment will be made by BANK TRANSFER ONLY !

A dancer's Typical work night in Cairo!


well just about got my breath back now...

Christmas and New Year are out the way.... only they are not, because today is Christmas day in Cairo!

Happy New year to you all, and Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it on the 7th Jan!

I haven't written here, because I've been writing for another blog!! (traitor to myself!!!!)

A fellow dancer who I knew when she lived in Scotland, lives now in Australia and has a blog. Yasmin asked me to write an article about a typical night of work for me... my answer ended up being a super long one... so, rather than repeats bits of it,  here is the link , so you can check it out direct at the source and also read other dancers replies to the same question! Interesting reading... Hope you enjoy it!
