Here is a playlist of a few of Banate El Kamar's Performances



It wasn't a difficult decision to put Banate El Kamar together in 2009 - most of us had been dancing together and i added two other very talented dancers - all these years down the line i can honestly say this was the best decision i every made, we have such a well of creativity, how could we not have fun, and i know this fun reads to the audience.  This is the entertainment that four best friends create.  I count myself lucky to be the Artistic director.

I have been Belly Dancing since 2006 and can honestly say I loved it from the minute I started  my first class! I was asked to join Banate el Kamar by Sue at the beginning of 2009. I couldn't ask for a better group of people to dance with. We are like sisters and we work so well together, we are a well oiled machine and after being together for all this time we are finely tuned to each other!  Belly Dancing is an amazing dance form and I have gained so much from it. Performing for audiences is a true pleasure, it's not a dance form that you see commonly in England so it's wonderful to be able to share it. I would ask anyone who wanted to try it to give it a go!
