The Oxford Middle East Dance Society (OMEDS) was hosting its winter bash proudly showcasing both its belly dance groups and ATS® tribal dance students (In-Spires) whom Kay White (ATS® teacher) and I (ATS® assistant) were leading out in their evening performance. Cat, Jen, and Ariel (who was dancing for the very first time in the UK) were wonderful and rightfully left the stage beaming all over!

The evening programme included solos from teachers Gwen Booth and Rasha Nour who later also went on to join Josephine Wise’s Johara Dance Company of which they’re members to perform a snippet from their latest show The Mirror. Special Guest Star of the night was the lovely and vibrant Zara, this year’s Bellydance Trophies winner who covered cabaret and folkloric before bringing the house down and getting everyone up with hot Shaabi sounds – thank you to all the organising team, we had a fab time.
