    I want to go but am not sure what to do about accommodation. (Single supplement on a posh hotel room? maybe not... ) Anyone likely to be up for a chalet-share?

    I would!

    One BIG problem. I start uni Monday 24th! How crap is that.

    I'm just trying to think if there would be anyway I could do it. Any ideas?

    I won't be going, for the following reasons:

    You have to stay at Butlins

    There's a Motown 'Adult Weekend' at Butlins Bognor the same weekend - the bars are open 24 hours

    You can't book for specific workshops and the organisers intend having up to 300 people in a workshop for the popular teachers, the teacher will have a head mic and there will be video screens - big deal, I may as well stay at home and watch a video

    I don't want to stay a Sunday night at a festival

    Who says biggest is best?!

    That's what they're planning, if there's sufficient demand - it was discussed on one of the Tribe message boards.

    This is the Adult Weekend: Family Holidays At UK Holiday Parks - Butlins

    You've never heard of Motown, girl?! Motown Records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hi there all
    As much interesting as seems the gathering of all these great teachers, the fact that a) there is no booking for workshops, b) there is the possibility of too many people in classes make me to say, nope!!!
    I dont know the organizers but, some times less is better, and we have to start from slow and small to get bigger.

    Hi anisteph/sara, i would be interested in sharing a chalet, if i go. I looked on the website and it looks like it is£129 for a pass before end of april, then accomodation for a standard room is £154. So nearly £300 for a weekend...maybe a bit steep but i do want to go. Anisteph, i cant see where you choose a sharing room on the butlins site, is that what standard is? If so that is the cheapest option and that includes meals.

    The organisers are Jo Wise:
    JWAAD - The Josephine Wise Academy of Arabic Dance and Irene and Edwin Wood: Belly dance costume & belly dance supplies at Aladdin's Cave

    Jo runs the twice-yearly Fantasia festival in London which I stopped going to because the workshops with the headlining teachers were so crowded and the workshop accommodation so awful.

    There are now several *huge* events, all with the same initials! The International Belly Dancing Convention in Las Vegas: The International Belly Dance Convention Las Vegas

    The International Belly Dance Conference in Canada: International Bellydance Conference Of Canada

    Sometimes, less is more...
