Edinburgh has a great many Egyptian or Egyptian-esque bellydance teachers; next weekend we will be treated to something a bit different, a bit special… Artemis Mourat, a world expert on Turkish bellydance, is coming to town.  She’ll be teaching three workshops, and there’ll be a hafla – see the flier below for more details, and also see the events on Facebook.

You may have read Tamsyn’s blog post (that had a lot of input from Artemis) about  Turkish and Egyptian dance – if not I recommend it.  I also recommend having a look at the clips below – they’re both of Artemis dancing, the first is from her DVD, the 2nd is a recent performance from Tribal Fest (and watch right to the end – she finishes with something very impressive!)
