Jawahir have been proud to support and take part in the Caerleon Arts Festival for over 15 yrs dancing at both the Bell and the Hanbury Arms. They are a group of like-minded women who meet every week in Newport to enjoy dancing, music and having fun. As a Middle Eastern dance group they combine traditional folk with modern influences from around the world. When watching them you may hear and see influences from Spain, Turkey, Armenia, Algeria and Israel to name a few.
Jawahir choreograph and source most of their dances, music and costumes. So it doesn’t matter what shape or size you are anyone can “shake their shimmy” and everyone is welcome to come and join Jawahir.
Many of the members have been dancing together for over 10 years and they run weekly classes at Duffryn Community Hall on Sundays 6.00pm-7.00pm which is suitable for all ages and ability, come and have a chat with them and find out more.
