The 2017 Summer School Students starting the summer term off with a little photo session, to show the sorts of things that we wear to class, because people tend to think we dance round in next to nothing!
...and of course a little photograph of the troupe in one of our favourite costumes. Whilst the Bedlah (bra & belt) is what most people commonly assume is traditional costuming, it is infact a Hollywood ideal, that shaped the world of oriental dance! As we are known to often perform a melting pot of styles, and include some Bollywood in our performances, this outfit reflects our dance style and is practical. Our skirts were from the mystical east, and our tops made in Egypt
