Welcome to the

Jewel of Yorkshire Website

News at 21st April 2019...

JoY will be on the 4th, 5th, and 6th of October 2019 this year.

JoY HQ has finished updating the web site. Phew!

You can now book using the Online system, which operates the same as last year. The colour coding system is the same as we have used for many years now. Workshops with a GREEN bar have lots of places left, those with an AMBER bar have less than half, and if the workshop is showing a RED bar then you had better book quickly because there will only be a few tickets left. If it says SOLD OUT then it really is sold out. We have a policy of limiting the number of people per room to try to give you the best possible experience.

The ‘Early Bird’ prices end 1st July 2019.

This year is our 15th and we are excited to host a mix of returning and new teachers. Most exciting we will be featuring Aziza of Cairo and Maria Aya (from Greece). We will be welcoming back Khaled Mahmoud (who was with us from the first JoY) and Ozgen. For our Tribal followers we have Deirdre MacDonald and Fulya along with a mix of other excellent teachers.

You can download and print off a PDF of the Schedule and Booking Form from this web site. (See the panel on this page) If you don’t want to use the Online system then email admin@jewelofyorkshire.co.uk with your booking and we will get back to you. You will be able to pay by PayPal or bank transfer. Or you can send a booking in the post, with a cheque, the old fashioned way. You can’t say we’re not flexible!

If you are thinking of performing in our “Student Showcase” on the Friday night please remember that our definition of ‘Student’ is ‘someone who is a student at the Jewel of Yorkshire Festival’. There was some confusion about this in the feedback we have read from 2017, some people thought that some of the performers were ‘too professional’ and should not have been in the show. We feel that anyone who has booked to do a workshop at the Festival is then eligible to dance in the Student Showcase. You will have to be quick off the mark though. Within two weeks of the Box Office opening last year we had 22 acts and another 12 that had to go onto a reserve list. It has become very popular.

Technical Stuff; but IMPORTANT!

ONLINE BOOKING: You can only make a booking for one person at a time. You cannot put multiples of workshops or shows on the same booking. If you want to book sessions for more than one person you must finish the first booking and pay, then you can start again for someone else. Please remember to put the full name of the person you are booking for in the information section on the checkout page and their email if you want confirmation to go to them (we normally send the confirmation to the person who paid). If in doubt email admin@jewelofyorkshire.co.uk and let us know what you are wanting to do.

We use a database to hold your information. The data held is NEVER shared with, or sold to, anyone else and we will only contact you about your booking.

Looking forward to seeing you at JoY.
