Introducing… Marj!

September 4th, 2016

Due to the increasing popularity of our darling Little Egypt Studio, recruitment has just taken place for a freelance Studio Assistant. This person joins the team for initially 3 hours per week with a view to extension, assisting in a number of ongoing tasks with a specialism in Administration. That person, I’m delighted to announce is…

framed-intro-MarjMarj:

“About this time last year I was trying to readjust back to everyday life after a sensational month dancing in ‘A Bollywood Love Story’ on the esplanade at Edinburgh Castle, as part of the Military Tattoo, and performing at Leith Links in the Edinburgh Mela. This unforgettable and wonderful experience came about because of Little Egypt and I’m delighted that a year later I’m about to embark on another part of my Little Egypt journey.

I’ve known Lindsey for more years than either of us care to remember and I’ve been a regular at BellyJam classes right from the beginning. I’ve seen Little Egypt being created and am delighted to be part of the special community of wonderful people it has grown into today. I’m absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to be professionally involved with Little Egypt and I look forward to bringing my admin skills to the studio, as well as my shimmies. I believe it’s going to be a great time for growth for both me and the Little Egypt tribe.

Aiwaaaaaa! To the moooooooon!

Marj

Juicy BIG things for Little Egypt!

Friends, something very exciting is about to happen at Little Egypt!

This July Lindsey will make the dancers pilgrimage to London’s world famous Pineapple Dance Studios to undertake some professional training. “To train at Pineapple Dance Studios is considered a right of passage and given that many dancers can only dream of these things, WOW, I’m humbled to be invited!”  A real testament to Lindsey’s professional ability and something she looks forward to with great joy!

But what is the training she’s undertaking? Why? Who will benefit?

Well, all we can say for now is that this is BIG juicy positivity for the whole dance scene in Scotland!!! Stay active to find out before the rest of Scotland!

Something Exciting Is About To Happen!

May 21st, 2016
Friends, something RIDICULOUSLY EXCITING is about to finally happen!!! Something several years in the making and something outreaching and positive for all involved.
Whilst I can’t tell you what it is just yet (if you’re a regular at Little Egypt you will likely find out first) but for now just know that I’m about to burst with excitement for us!!!

Bellydance Party

Our weekly classes might be fully booked but there’s space in our diary for a private party!

Whether it be a hen party, birthday party, yummy mummy, a wedding, corporate event or just an excuse to get together and let your hair down, we have all the sparkle, skill and expertise to turn your event into something really special!

Our qualified performers and teachers deliver a high end professional hire service for all occasions that is second to none.

Your party can be tailored to your imagination or you can choose from our popular preset packages.

Sip champagne, sit back and enjoy a professional bellydance show, clap along, join in. Bring luck to your guests of honour with tradition. Get glamorous with cabaret, wild with modern fusion, flirty with veils. See your friends release their inhibitions and super charge the atmosphere with exciting exotic shimmies!

You can utilise our outreach choosing for us to come to your own venue or bring the party to us here in Edinburgh at our fixed premises, Little Egypt, the UK’s only themed bellydance studio.

Professional – Reliable – Quality – Entertainment

For an event like no other and memories that will last forever, hire Bellydancingbarbie (but best be quick, we’re in demand!)
