Fun evening with Rosie Metaxa demonstrating Egyptian dancing

Rosie Metaxa entertained us on Wednesday with a demonstration of Egyptian dancing.  She began with a short, fascinating talk on the history and background of Egyptian dancing, supported with the opportunity to see and handle some beautiful examples of handmade costumes.  The bead work was exquisite, as you can see in the pictures below.

Rosie expertly demonstrated an Egyptian dance, then showed us some of the individual movements.  At that point, members had great fun having a go themselves.

If you want to have a go, then Rosie runs a number of classes locally.
