Dances from the Old Silk Road


August 7th and 8th 2021 (Saturday 11.00 – 4.30, Sunday 10.30 – 4.00)


At the Secret Studio, Mapperley, Nottingham NG3 6EF

With Chrisandra and Dalila





Come take a dance along the Old Silk Road with us. Learn about the people who live there, their stories, music and of course their dances.  


These are mostly traditional village dances. The stories will be about the people that live along the route, and will be ones that Dalila and Chrisandra have collected during their travels in these areas.


Chrisandra has been teaching world dance for over 30 years. She has visited many countries along the Old Silk Road and organised popular dance tours to study the culture, music and dance of many of these areas.

Dalila is a much loved and respected dance teacher who shares dances from her native Armenia but also has a wide repertoire of other Silk Road dances.

A social gathering may be planned for the Saturday evening depending on interest.


Contribution £50 for the weekend, includes drinks and refreshments, bring your own packed lunch. Unfortunately there are no single day tickets. Music and film/notes of the dances will be available for a small extra charge.


If you need to stay over there are lots of AirBnB places in the area, a Premier Inn in Daybrook and lots of accommodation in Nottingham city centre which is a short bus ride away and close to the railway station. Please ask if you need help.
