Presented by Desert Jasmin and Dunya Belly Dance, Kaleidoscope of Stars was a fantastic festival held at Watermans Theatre and The Place in London on 8th and 9th June 2013. Many thanks to our sponsors (Anne White/Planet Egypt & Amora Dance), vendors (Bellydance Boutique & Tina Enheduanna), competitors, dancers and audience! It was such a treat to have outstanding international and UK stars: Elena Ramazanova (Russia), Aleksey Ryoboshapka (Ukraine), Ozgen (Turkey), Galit Mersand, Maelle, Tara Lee Oakley, Natalie Borg, London Algerian Ballet, Ozgen’s One Day in Istanbul, Melissa Bellydance & Mahira, and Zana. After an exciting day of competitions, gala show, photo studio and bazaar, dance students took a variety of dance workshops offered by our international stars.
The festival received some great feedback! One of our workshop attendees said that Elena’s Oriental Mergence workshop was “refreshing” and show attendees were amazed to see “high quality local and international pieces.” We hope to see you at the next festival in June 2014!!!
The competition saw fabulous professional and amateur solo and group performances judged by Elena (Russia), Aleksey (Ukraine), Ozgen (Turkey/UK) and Galit (UK/Israel). The League of Bellydance Masters set forth a fair, transparent and rigorous competition programme delivered by Desert Jasmin and Dunya Belly Dance. The full award list and scores are available at the Desert Jasmin website. Congratulations to all of our competitors!
