Possible JoY workshops

I've decided I *have* to be at JoY in October, in order to see the Spirit of Egypt show, so I was looking at workshops. I've booked my hotel.

I'm currently looking at:
Sat 11.45 - Luna - Quintessentially Egyptian - This looks like a routine Technique workshop
Sat 4.15 - Luna - Feel it, Dance it - This one's about Mawwal, so I hope there'll be a lot of stuff about interpretation, and that it's reasonably wide-ranging, rather than focussing on just one or two pieces of mawwal.
Sun 10.00 - Yasmina - Fun Sha'abi - While Yasmina's forte is elegant Oriental, she knows a lot about a lot, and I do loves me the Sha'abi!
Sun 12.15 - Luna - Modern Sa'aidi - I also loves the Sa'aidi!
Sun 2.30 - Luna - Arabic Toolkit - Interpretation of often-used words and phrases in Arabic songs. Fits right in with the sort of stuff I like to learn about.

I usually try not to do too many workshops at JoY, because I like to chat and shop. The only one of those that I'd ditch would be the first one. This would mean, ridiculously, that I'd be doing practically nothing all day Saturday. But I don't really want to drop any of the others.

I'm still debating whether to drive or take the train. I suspect it will be the train. I can do stuff on a train (like lesson planning, sewing, reading, etc) which you can't when you're driving, and the petrol wouldn't really be any cheaper.

I may have gone a little mad with my JoY workshops for October. I am going to have to take the day off afterwards to recover.

LOL! I don't know how far you've got to travel to get home, but I hope for your sake it's not too far! You are going to be shattered, in body and mind! At least, that's how I usually feel after JoY!

Thankfully not far, I live in Leeds.

I think I'm teaching up to about 1ish on Sat so I'm having the Sat afternoon nattering and chilling ready for the running about like a loon in the evening. I thought I'd do either Luna's saidi or arabic toolkit.
