    From what I read on the website, I think you have to sign up for the workshop on the day itself, but I don't know for sure. I'll send them an e-mail and inform you as soon as I get an answer.

    absolutely, but for the price of only 5 euros, I'm not complaining There will also be performances and free dancing. I think it's going to be fun!

    Tja, considering that my finances are very tight at the moment for various reasons, a full-day event like that for 5 euries is such a treat! Ok, I'll have to spend more than 5 euries to get there by train, but anyways! My only concerns are available time and getting the ok from my doctor (long story - e-mail me for details ), but by then I should know if I can go or not...

    But I DO want to go

    I would also love to go. For just 5 euro's it should be great if there's so much going on like the site tells us. I've sent a teacher I know an email (she is connected to Oriental Magic in some ways). I'll let you know when I get a response there too

    I'm soooo dying to do that classic egyptian thing Farouq is amazing.

    aaargh Yshka! Stop making me jealous! I wanted to do the classic Egyptian workshop too, but I don't have enough dance experience yet
    Hope he'll give another workshop at this event in 2008

    Default I've got mail back!

    Here's my translation:

    Dear Sarah,

    Indead, a few months ago, I posted a few plans for reservations on the Oriental Magic Forum, but later we decided to drop the idea.

    "Het Turfschip" has room for at least 1000 people. In case of emergency, we can involve an extra dance room, and then there will be room for almost 1500 visitors! When considering that many visitors can't even stay for the whole day, we could even cope with 2000 visitors, without refusing admission to anyone.

    The workshops in the "Groot Ruim", among others the workshop for children by Madame Baba and the workshop Tribal by Gonda, are free to enter without having to sign up in advance. We can easily cope with 500 participants in the "Groot Ruim".

    The other workshops in the smaller rooms have a maximum of 20 to 40 participants, and for those workshops, it is necessary to sign up. To deal with the situation as fairly as possible, we decided to don't let people sign up for the workshops untill one hour before the workshop starts.

    In other words, you can sign up for a workshop one hour before it starts. Full is full. With more than 20 hours of free workshops, there is enough choice, I guess, but we want to prevent a situation where people who come very early sign up immediately for a lot of workshops and there will be no room for people who come later, that's why.

    CU@OrientalMagic

    Regards,
    Simon

    Lol Mariyam, I would sure be one of those running idiots
    I'm going to try and see if more people from my area are going, so I might try and get someone with a car to come with me. But anyway I'm seriously thinking of going there. Maybe we can all meet!

    Moon, great, I hadn't gotten a response yet so I'm glad you posted this. By the way, during the summer there's Farouq and Leila's Zomerweek.Workshops are held in Utrecht all week by Farouq and another dancer named Leila. I went there a month ago (it was in July) and took two workshops by Farouq which I absolutely loved, he's really cool. Workshop levels are all half-advanced and up if I'm correct so you might want to try them later (for other workshops by him check www.farouq.nl).
    I missed the opportunity to take his Classic Egyptian there since I signed up waaaaaay too late Anyway, I'm sure he'll give the same workshop sometime later, you'll have the chance to take it too I'm sure!!

    Now I'm off to think of strategies for getting to that sign up list like mad
