Directed by Kay Taylor
25th June 2018 - 30th June 2018
 East meets West £50 non-refundable deposit
This project will take place from Monday 25th June 2018 - starting at 10am and finish on Saturday night, 30th June 2018, culminating in a show.
I am very excited that Princess Farhana and Ozgen will be this years teachers and choreographers.
I am directing and producing the show and between us we have put together a concept.
There will be 2 groups - a maximum of 15 dancers in each group.
All choreographies for the show will be new to the UK.  This is the first time we have worked together and it promises to be a fabulous week and a unique experience.
Group 1
Traditional Romany choreography with Ozgen
Turkish Oryental choreography with Ozgen
Tabla choreography with Princess Farhana
Group 2
Golden Era vintage choreography with Princess Farhana
Modern oriental / fusion choreography with Princess Farhana
Modern Romany pop with Ozgen
Both groups will work together on the finale which will be a Zaffa.
Tuition is from 10am - 5pm Monday - Friday.
Saturday we spend in the theatre focussing on staging and lighting.
Our studios are a combination of new purpose built studios opened in Sunderland at the Old Fire Station (the new cultural hub in Sunderland) and an existing studio nearby.
I recommend staying at the Travel Lodge, High Street West, Sunderland.  A short walk from the studios.
Our theatre is in Newcastle.  The show will finish about 9.30pm and give people time to get home if they have travelled.
We normally have an after show party in a restaurant near the Travel Lodge in Sunderland…. so stay until Sunday if you can.  Partners are welcome if they are coming to watch the show.
Currently you can get 7 nights (24th June - 1st July 2018) in the Travel lodge for £245.  If you share a room this is only £122.50 each.  Bargain!
There are some very reasonably priced restaurants, cafes and bars in Sunderland.  And Seaburn beach a short drive away.
36 hours tuition with international teachers.
Fabulous studio space
Rehearsals time in the theatre.
2 free tickets for the show.
Professional lighting technician to ensure you all look wonderful.
Cocktail party on Thursday night at my house…… and supper.
All this for only £345
A £50 non-refundable deposit is needed to secure your place.
Please specify whether you would like to be in Group 1 or Group 2.  If you are happy to be in either, also let me know.
