The team - Kay Taylor

Kay Taylor is a much sought-after teacher and performer. Her inspiration is drawn direct from Cairo but her style is her own. Kay’s love of the dance communicates itself through her performances and in her classes. As head of the JWAAD Teacher Training course, she believes strongly in developing dancers to their full potential.

Kay has a wealth of experience in event organisation. With Farida Adventures, she runs between 5 and 10 tours to Cairo each year. If you can run a tour in Cairo, you can cope with anything. These tours are widely acknowledged as being the best specialist belly dance tours in the UK. Her next Egyptian adventure is the Farha Festival in Luxor. Classes with live music and dancers working in Cairo. A fabulous experience for any dancer.

With her other company, Farida Dance, she also runs the highly successful Northern residential course at Ford Castle in Northumberland. As Farida Dance, Kay imports and sells dance wear and costumes. When she started dancing, Kay couldn't find any costumes to buy in the UK so started to import them. Farida Dance has one of the biggest ranges of costumes in the UK. Kay has also launched her own designs for troupe wear. As a dancer herself she knows what looks and feels good. Kay is one of the principal dancers and founder of the Tarab Dance Company. This Northern based company has featured twice at the Fringe Festival in Edinbu
rgh to great reviews.
