This special night marks our re- emergence onto London 's busy Arabic Dance and Music scene after a long absence. So it's all about celebrating … we have Live Music and Singers for you and have scheduled the night with this in mind so there will be plenty of time for you to dance. So the Performance aspect of our night will be reduced
Another feature of our night is that we have taken the unprecedented step of highlighting in this show- just one person and her contribution to the London and UK Dance Scene: the iconic Josephine Wise
Part 1 starts at 8.30
Part 2 with Live Music starts at 9.45
Please remember that we do our best to start on time and keep to the schedule. But as our events are "Live" many factors can impinge on us BUT we can definately promise you an enjoyable night!!!!

Info including Parking
Parking The area has CPZ, and is controlled parking zone. There are places nearby where one can park, but the safest way to park easily is to park a little distance away. I normally park in one of the side streets off Camden Road and walk down or catch one of the many buses on this busy route
Nearest tube: Camden Town on Northern line
The Silk Bar and Restaurant is a new vibrant and inviting venue opens its doors to the nightlife area of Camden town in central London . – Drinks from £7 (doubles) Shots £4 / Food menu and Indoor Electronic Shisha Sticks Available . Cheaper prices before 8pm. We are thrilled that we have secured a Saturday night slot and are delighted to work with our Good Friend and Hostess Mel (DJ Melicious)
Over the 9 years that Planet Egypt hosted monthly shows many of our dancers and a significant amount of our stars, have been trained by Josephine Wise and are exponents of her discipline (JWAAD). Moreover many of her students, Teachers and Competition winners, are members of our audience so it feels appropriate to honour her and her contribution in this way. As usual we will feature a variety of performances in terms of discipline and style to reflect our usual artistic signature
Confirmed dancers this night with Josephine so far are:
Maelle -mainly trains with Josephine Wise and keeps expanding her repertoire to new forms of dance and skills. "Winner of Bellydance Trophies UK 2011-2012, Maëlle is a performer, teacher and choreographer in London She is now working with a new award winning Artists collaboration project called "Ahnemon" She is also a much loved member and regular of our audience and it is my great pleasure to see her debut on our stage
Catherine Bartholomew -JWAAD trained teacher based in Kent and a National Technique Assessor on the JWAAD faculty. Catherine toured with The Johara Dance Company performing as a troupe dancer and soloist
Gwen Booth – Gwen is known for her elegant dancing and use of props, blending influences from western theatrical dance with Egyptian bellydance. She has performed and taught across the UK and in Europe and is a tutor on the JWAAD Diploma course for bellydance teachers.
Nuxya -After spending time studying drama and theatre arts, Nuxya reignited her passion for dance, exploring jazz and street dance and later performing with an international Bollywood dance company.
Nuxya joined Josephine Wise's acclaimed Johara Dance company in 2007, performing and choreographing pieces in both the Elemental and Hoochie Coochie Girls tours.
She is founder and director of the dance collaboration Ahnémon, who fuse theatre, circus and comedy with all styles of bellydance.

My twin, has lived in Saudi Arabia (and also Libya). She was active in the Saudi Community and as a result her khaleegy is very much the real thing.She is a Great Ambassadress for me having travelled around the world so extensively and speaking nearly all the European languages (including Greek) and also Chinese and Arabic ! She is a terific asset to me as a member of the Team and also as my twin sister!
Oh I DO love live music and I could not resist it… The Band leader Emad is amazing and just entices me …. Years ago I worked on the Arab Wedding and party scene. I spent many a night in some of the clubs too. Most notably Cave de Roi (sadly now closed). Its such a blessing to have Good Musicians, and I want to do everything I can to enable them to continue their Artistry and to encourage our Community to experience the nirvana of dancing to live music
Our Live Band – Musicians and Singers: will also be announced shortly and will be led by Band leader: Emad Shaker (Org)
Emad is a much respected Band leader, classically trained on the Org, he also composes his own music and contributed to the JWAAD cd "Between 2 beaches and the sea" See here .
