Jewel of Yorkshire Yorkshire’s First Festival of Bellydance

News at 17 October 2017...

Welcome to the JoY web site.

JoY 2017 is now over, and we have recovered enough to update the web site! We had a great time and we hope you did too. We look forwards to seeing you all again next year, and welcoming new people to the JoY experience.


We leave all unclaimed lost property with the staff at Victoria Hall at the end of the weekend so if you have lost something then you should contact them on 01274 327 305.


Our next JoY will be on 5, 6, and 7 of October 2018.


We will let you know what our line-up is for the workshops when we have finalised our selection of teachers. Watch this space.


You can expect to find the new schedule on here April 2018. (In the meantime we have left the old schedules so you can see the way we organise the days and the time slots.)


We will be doing the usual “Early Bird” bargains so keep browsing back, or visit our FaceBook page, for news. We accept bookings by post, by email, or through our online booking system.


As before we will also run a Friday ‘Student’ Showcase and there will be a Saturday ‘Festival’ Show featuring many of the teachers. If you are interested in dancing in the Student Showcase more details about how to apply will be on here in April.
