She now travels the world teaching at international 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 are highly accessible but challenging. Whether you are a recent beginner, stuck in a rut, or a professional dancer seeking a fresh perspective Lorna will dramatically improve your dancing and fill you with inspiration

Lebanese Simon

Lebanese Simon

Lebanese Simon was born and raised in northern Lebanon and his style of Lebanese Folk Dabke is described as strong, captivating, and deeply heartfelt. Through oriental dance, Simon reveals his personal creative approach, drilling combinations with a focus on technique and rhythms. Most importantly, he focuses on executing the moves yet staying emotionally connected to the melody and the story line. His versatility in dance has brought him very close to the heart of a wide range of audience and followers around the world.

Lorna has opened my eyes to seeing belly dance in a new light and connecting to the music. Her workshops are fun and full of exploration. Her exercises and tips have developed my dance and dramatically improved my performances.

Simon’s workshops are fun, energetic and challenging. He is a lovely teacher, explains things clearly and keeps every moment exciting. His workshops have helped me add new moves to my repertoire and understand more about the culture of Lebanese belly dance.
