Testimonials/Feedback on our Liverpool Tuition
"Recently attended a stick workshop and found it really interesting and imaginative.
Great teaching of different and interesting techniques, some I have never seen before, and a lovely welcoming atmosphere. Looking forward to the next workshops!"
"Sirocco Academy of Egyptian dance played a large part in my dance and performance training. I gained skills and confidence in the workshops and had incredible fun with enthusiastic, experienced, kind teachers along the way. We are really very fortunate to have this level of teaching and performance talent in our area. Whether you wish to pursue Egyptian dance for your health and enjoy it as a hobby and/or also to go on to perform, be guided and supported by positive, skilled professionals in SAED and I feel certain you will enjoy every minute of it as I did."
"I loved that there was input about the different styles/props and their history, context etc and the drilling. Lovely mix of teachers/styles and venue too."
"I enjoyed the variety of lessons and it allowed us to learn more from the experience and interests of the different teachers"
"All the teachers have their own style which makes for a good mix. I learnt something from all of them. Their enthusiasm for the different areas really shone through and its been really good to learn from people with a lot of experience in the particular areas".
"The teaching was at the right pace and handouts useful"

impact without forgetting the bellydance- from
wraps to dramatic accents and all inbetween. Plus
