Both teachers of egyptian belly dance, Suraya and Stephi provide a varied and exciting show with a selection of oriental and folkloric dances. They have been described as fluid, powerful, earthy and feminine dancers.
A performance set can include prop work such as zills (finger cymbals) or bellydance with veil, Saidi dance (folkloric dance with cane), Ghawazee gypsy dance (traditional folkloric Egyptian dance), Oriental bellydance to traditional music and Drum solos – dance to drumming either to live or to a recorded track bringing out the sharper isolating movements of the dance.
They also collaborate with fantastic live drummers Ben Jammin (djembe), Mirko Cossu (darbuka) and Stevie Peas (darbuka) which adds a more traditional, ‘earthy’ and interactive element to the performance.
