From blogger to belly dancer

Caroline in one of her many costumes, ready to hit the stage

Linkam chief blogger Caroline Feltham has a passion outside of hot stages... belly dancing.

Last weekend she took part in an annual dance show called 'The Magic of Bellydance' staged in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, to an audience of over 500 people. Dancing as part of a group called the 'Habibis', alongside 200 amateurs and professionals from across the South East of England, the show was a huge success.

The event was picked up in the national press with The Express newspaper reporting that one of the stars of the show has sold the story of belly dancing in the UK to Hollywood. Dubbed the new 'Calendar Girls', after the film starring Judi Dench, the movie will tell the story of how ten years ago one woman defied the sniggers and whispers and brought belly dancing to a quiet English village. Read the full story here.

Congratulations Caroline on a fantastic weekend. We look forward to bellydancing: the movie, and the red carpet premiere.
