Performing at local events such as Heeley Festival, Chance to Dance, Stannington Carnival and Sunfest. These are regular spots in our summer calendar and as soon as we have this years dates and links to their websites for this year we will put them here.

Gothla gothic bellydance festival in Leicester, in July. We love a trip to the darkside and this festival offers superb workshops which not only embrace the dark and dramatic elements of dance but cover challenging technique too. There is a fab teachers show and then an opportunity for us to join in at the the open stage and rock out at the club night.
