    Amel was in the Friday night show which was UK and European dancer but obviously wasn't just!
    Morocco along with Suhalia and Fathiem was in the first hafla of the BDSS Sat. night show. I don't recall saying they were sooperstars but they were on the programme.

    Between you and me and the thousands reading this thread if you had to miss one of the shows ( as did Caroline) you aughten'd to have missed the Fri night and the Sat. matinee.
    And I saw open platform moments that topped the Sat. show!

    My top moments:
    The Uzume,Tango duo,Leyla Jouvana and yes Houda..proof : a wild audience!

    Totally off topic, sorry... Had to say how much I am looking forward to Amel. She and I are performing in the same production next month and I've not had the chance to see her dance before.

    Ooh, excellent! I kept seeing her everywhere a few years before I took my first belly dance class - in street festivals, on TV, at a concert of Algerian music. She even used to do story telling for Eid at my local primary schools!

    Have you seen Bozenka in the BDSS? I have only seen her on video, but I would kill to see her live!

    I found that the tribal fusion girls exhibited the most presence at our BDSS stop. I'm not sure why that was; I expected more BANG from the cab fusion dancers, and never got it. Jillina's got skills, though, and she connected well with the audience.

    Bozenka was certainly the best for me. The tribal fusion frankly was done with far more pzazz by The Uzume.

    Sadly, no. I was hoping to take a workshop with Bozenka, which must have been the third time the BDSS were over here, but she didn't make it after all. I took a workshop with Jillina instead, that time, and I was really disappointed as I didn't find it at all challenging. I'd taken several workshops with Jillina when she first came over to teach at Fantasia in London, before the BDSS came, and enjoyed those but between then and the last workshop I took with her I'd been travelling abroad virtually every month to take workshops with Egyptian master teachers so maybe my standard had gone up or she'd dumbed-down, or a bit of both!

    Like Caroline I was distracted from his strong and skilful dancing by silly female shrieking.

    Yes but why does he feel it necessary to do the stripper thing?
