About JoY….

About the Jewel of Yorkshire bellydance festival.

Our aim is to provide a dance-filled, fun weekend with the best of Yorkshire hospitality and common sense values.

We book the best National and International star teachers whilst keeping our charges as reasonable as possible. Workshops are suitable for all levels and budgets. We keep class sizes limited for a more personal experience – unlike some festivals. The maximum is 35 for a room. Master classes are just 15 students. You do not have to book the whole weekend, you can pick and choose your workshops to suit your needs.

Victoria Hall is in the centre of the World Heritage site of Saltaire. There is easy access by public transport. It is an elegant venue and we try to ensure the festival has a great atmosphere. We have a large souk and café based in the Main Hall where you can relax and chat with your friends.

On Saturday night we host our fantastic ‘Festival’ show, plus a disco and space to chill and chat. On Friday evening you can get in some early shopping and we have a Student Showcase where you can see students who have come for the weekend performing.
