    Hi Caroline,
    The dates this year are May 1-4. It takes place once a year as you said but the same organizers also have two smaller festivals usually in november and march called "Cairo by night". I have never attended these myself but since I've been longing to go for many years I have eagerly been studying their homepage.

    My teacher, Melissa Abraham, has been attending the Stockholm Belly Dance Festival since the first one and it's just got bigger and better every year. The Egyptian teachers are always in a good mood (even the normally grumpy ones!) and the level of students in the Advanced classes really *is* advanced so if you want to be pushed, it's a great festival to attend.

    hmm not sure which three airports you mean. In Stockholm the biggest one is "Arlanda" and a smaller one is "Bromma". They would have decent transfer into city. Any other airports are probably nearby cities that offer transfer to stockholm as well but it can take time. A bit like Stanstead perhaps? Absolutely doable if you get a good price but there's quite a long busdrive.

    I can't advice on accomodations since I always stay with some relatives.

    Caroline,
    on the official website index you can check out the links to several hotels and hostels nearby the festival area, or at Stockholms website Welcome to Stockholm.com and click for accomodations.

    Now I finally decided on what workshops to take.
    Being a newbie in the field I'm too nervous to take more than 2 classes. Maybe I'll do more next year.

    I'm taking the Tribal workshop with Ulla Edenmark and then the Oriental technique (intermediate level) with Lubna Eman.

    Anyone here taken classes with any of the teachers mentioned above before? If so, are they very difficult?

    I just hope there's room for me in the classes, I haven't received a confirmation email yet....

    I'm thinking of going to maybe two of the dance shows as well.

    Agghhh this is my first dance festival, I'm a bit nervous actually but it's going to be sooo much fun!

    Dear Deliana,

    I haven't been to Ulla's class, but Lubna is a lovely patient teacher. I think the workshops You have chosen will not be hard for You

    Also, when I first went to Stockholm I dacided as well to take tickets for two nights but afer I went to them I immediately purchased tickets for other nights as well
