What you'll do

Treat yourself to a Lebanese feast followed by belly dancing in this authentic experience, where the food and dancing comes to your home!

First you'll roll up your sleeves and ready for the array of rich, aromatic flavours that you'll discover during the first part of your experience. With the help of you host, Wafaa, you'll be using fresh ingredients, to create each dish, bursting with rich flavours, but not hot and spicy. Choosing delicious dishes from a seasonal menu, together you'll make:

  • A dip
  • A salad
  • A vegetarian dish
  • A meat dish
  • A dessert

Wafaa grew up in Lebanon and will share all her authentic cooking tips and advice while guiding you through each step, to make sure that you'll be able to recreate this flavourful meal for friends and family.

You'll tuck in and enjoy the feast you've prepared before continuing your Lebanese experience with traditional belly dancing! Wafaa will expertly show you the moves and guide the group through a;; the graceful techniques of belly dancing, then you'll follow along to the upbeat music. Before you know it you'll be hooked by the magic of this dance and will be ready to give two or three exciting routines a whirl.

Your experience will finish with a solo performance from Wafaa while you sit back and relax with a well-deserved drink!

About Dancing Flavours

Wafaa was born in Lebanon and has combined her love of food and belly dancing to create her unique business, Dancing Flavours. Food is key to hospitality in Lebanon and it’s unheard of for anyone to visit a Lebanese family without been offered something to eat; that could be a full meal or snacks like fruit and nuts, and don't forget the famous coffee. Wafaa's inspiration for cookery comes the tasty food she grew up eating and learning how to prepare with her mum, whose family recipes are traditional, simple and tasty.

Growing up, Wafaa never thought that belly dancing could be a business, but nothing equalled the pleasure she got when she danced so she has now combined it with her love of food, to create a unique business.

Your host

Wafaa Powell

Wafaa is the youngest of 7 children and was born in Lebanon, where she lived until she married her English husband in the 1990s. Wafaa's inspiration for cookery comes from her mum, who found the best way to show her love was through food. The recipes have been passed down through generations and so are the ones Wafaa grew up eating and learning how to prepare. Wafaa believes eating should be a pleasure as much as a necessity and that the relationship between people and food defines the culture of a place.

Belly dancing is also a big part of Wafaa's life. She grew up with it, dancing at home, with friends, at weddings and at parties, and while studying at university she attended belly dance courses in Lebanon to improve her skills. People are at the heart of everything that Wafaa does and she is passionate about sharing her love of belly dancing and Lebanese cuisine.
