The Sydney Middle Eastern Dance Festival brings together Australia's best teachers and overseas guests for a range of belly dance and drumming workshops. Use the Workshop Menu, right, to view the workshop descriptions and times. Have fun!

Cost - unless otherwise noted, all workshops are $40.00 per two-hour workshop (incl. GST - Australian dollars). Please note that the charge for workshops is for attending, whether you choose to participate physically or not!

To book - use the Festival Booking Form. If you are booking workshops for more than one person, you must use a separate form for each individual because we need full contact details for each workshop participant.

Children - don't forget to arrange childcare for your kids! Entry to workshops is restricted to paid-up participants only. Children under 12 are welcome as workshop participants for $20 when accompanied by a paying adult only, but will not be admitted to workshops under any other circumstances. Please make childcare arrangements!

Changed your mind? - sorry, no refunds. Workshop places may be exchanged up to 12 April provided there is room available in the workshop you wish to change to. A $3.00 administration fee applies.

After booking you will receive a letter confirming your workshop place/s - please check it to make sure everything is correct (office errors can occur!). On the day, your name will be on the list at the workshop door - please arrive a little early to register.

Sadly Rose from Perth can't make it to the festival now so we have replaced her workshop with Tambourine & Zills with Leonie & Ali. Get the workshop info. If you are booked into Rose's workshop you can stay in it and do the replacement instead, or change to another workshop, or get a refund. Please contact us if you haven't already heard from us.
