    I was so sorry to hear that the Copenhagen belly dance festival was cancelled this year! I was looking forward to the workshops with Khaled Mahmoud and Zahra.
    Great choice of teacher! I have met Selina once and seen her dance and she is a wonderful dancer. I was completely mesmerized by her performance.

    Yes I am sorry too for the festival. Just as the word was spreading that there was a festival going on. But those events are expensive and almost everything, like stage venues and workshop places, has to be paid in advance Maybe it will return in the future.

    Yeah, she´s really great, and very passionate and engaged about the dancing and everything about it.

    I hope there will be another belly dance festival in Copenhagen soon, so many great dancers that were going to teach. No wonder it would have been expensive.

    Im really looking forward to it! No, actually, i dont know any one from here who is going, so in the worst case scenario im going alone. But i have a friend who lives and study in Cairo, and are probably also going to the festival. So hopefully i will not be without company. Being entirely on my own in a city like Cairo, when i´ve never been there before, is not to be recommended i think. Hehe.

    Do you have any advice or is it something specific i should consider before i book my tickets, hotel and workshops?

    Oh my, I was replying another thread in the Meet and Greet section and then realised that I never got round to answering you. Sorry about that! To be honest, I don't have suggestions to give you, except for the one that have patience when booking the workshops (or the hotel if you decide to stay at the festival hotel). They get a lot of e-mails, so it can take them quite a bit of time to get back to you. And when it comes to booking workshops, don't overdo it - I know that the selection is overwhelming. It always takes me days before SBDF or Nile Group to figure out which workshops to take But give yourself also time for rest, and socialize and shop, of course!

    Do you know the schedule for November's festival is out already?
