Lorna has been dancing and teaching Egyptian style Bellydance professionally since 1996. She has just returned to UK after living and performing in Cairo for 10 years!
In Egypt, Lorna starred The Nile Maxim boat, Zamalek. Previously she was the first ever contracted dancer at the prestigious 5 star Fairmont Nile City Hotel, where she performed regularly at the oriental Bab El Nil restaurant. Prior to that Lorna was the star of the Nile Pharaoh boats from 2006. She also performed at many weddings and parties across the country and has appeared on Egyptian TV.
Lorna’s own dance style has developed over years of being a professional performer in Cairo and internationally and teaches in festivals, workshops and private classes to pass on her ‘Cairo knowledge!’.
As a teacher, Lorna’s extensive experience has allowed her to develop a unique teaching style like nobody else. Her workshops usually ring with the gasps of ‘Eureka’ moments, and students typically report back that their dancing dramatically improves from the moment they leave the class with the inspiration she instills.
Lorna’s workshops are highly accessible but challenging, whether you are a recent beginner, stuck in a rut, or a professional dancer seeking a fresh perspective.
Now for the first time ever, Lorna will be visiting Brisbane as part of her "Lorna of Cairo Down Under Tour". She will be teaching over 10 hours of workshops over two days and performing at Soul Dances annual end of year Gala. No matter your level, style or background of dance, Lorna is sure to offer an educational, inspiring and invigorating workshop to help push you to the next step of your dance journey.
This is once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a whole weekend with master bellydance instructor and dancer, Lorna of Cario.
