       NODA REVIEW - DAWN HARVEY - FOR SUDDENLY AT HOME - MAY 2017

Maggie Howard ? DAWN HARVEY

What a peach of a role, flamboyant and, as Dawn herself said, larger than life.  Dawn threw herself with gusto into her performance. Projection and diction were good with nice facial expressions. As the murder victim Dawn is to be commended on her handling of the actual murder scene and the subsequent length of time being left on stage as the body, remaining completely still, even when being man-handled by the murderer, until she could finally leave the stage.

 

     
























This Classic thriller by Francis Durbridge, the master of suspense and famous for his Paul Temple series, weaves its intricate path through a story of love and greed to its ultimate end, DEATH.

When Glenn Howard decides to get rid of his wealthy wife he works out a complicated but seemingly fool-proof plan which would not only provide him with an alibi but also cast suspicion on his wife's former lover.   Everything appears to be going according to the plan, but Glenn has not counted on the indomitable Superintendent Remick.

This is Durbridge at his very, very best.?

Thanks for all the lovely ladies of every age/size and shape over the last 28 years for enriching my life and learning this amazing art form. I have enjoyed every minute. Dawn

 

                       DAWNS BIOGRAPHY

 Picture by Birte - at Watford Live Festival 2010 - July (thanks to Birte) 

Dawn specialises in Middle Eastern Dance - Belly Dance and has been dancing for 27 Years. and Teaching for 13 years.  I am a proud member of Equity hold Public Liability Insurance.  I am a tasteful perfomer (suitable for all the family) and an indepth teacher, with a wide range of knowledge. of technique and prop work.

I first started classes with the wonderful Jacqueline Chapman - (who I still train under), and it is thanks to her that I am the dancer and teacher I am today. 

I then went on to train with amazing Hossam Ramzy (who is based in England - lucky for us ) on a workshop basis -  which was hard work but really rewarding, and later also with his lovely wife Serena.

Rakia Hassan was my next teacher on a extremely tiring weeks residential in Egypt.  But very inspirational.

Bouchra was lovely in Morroco.

Foufa-El-Faransawy was also great fun and this is where I found my favourite piece of music 'Aaskah' in Cairo

Ousama (a male folkloric teacher) was exhausting in Alexandra , Egypt  - but great fun. 

Birgul was quite an experience in Istanbul - (she was taught by the wonderful Nesrin Topkapi), quite a scary lady and you aught to see her back drop onto the floor in high heels - AMAZING. really hard work but very beneficial.

Over the years I have attending many solo workshops held by many different teachers - so I am experienced in many different styles - meshing together to make my own unique style.  I am known as quite a fast dancer - I love Egyptian, Turkish and Lebanese I do not just do one style like some teachers which I think gives the student a bit of variety and keeps it interesting.

Many of my contempories started teaching much earlier than myself, it took my many years of study before I felt ready to teach. You not only learn a dance but teach a culture as well.!!

Enjoy your journey to learn this amazing art form - I certainly did, its helps confidence, posture, stamina and to create agreat social network. 

Well at last after 22 years I have managed to be trained by the wonderful Nesrin Topkapi.  (Birgul was trained by her insidentially - see above).  Simply Brilliant - Very interesting very Egyptian style in Hips and very turkish hand movements.   So pleased to meet her.  Even after being exhausted by my Hafla the night before.!! 

2012 - Embarks on her new love of Ameture Theatre - joining Belmont Theatre Company. After a 27 year break from Acting. Really enjoying myself

Dawn?s Hafla In Pinner - by Victoria

28Nov 2011

Dawn Harvey?s Christmas Hafla

?Amazing music, great performances and what a wonderful audience?

Last year, our teacher gave us the opportunity to perform a bollywood-infused belly dance at a hafla organised by her good friend and fellow belly dance teacher, Dawn Harvey. It was a fantastic show with an encouraging audience and performances that blew you away.

This year, we were informed Dawn was once again in search of some performers for the ?Christmas Hafla?. I couldn?t help myself, I just had to get involved. As soon as I registered my interest, I began fishing around for some interesting music. A girl I worked with quite a few years ago, Stephanie Faysal (now a very well known TV presenter in Lebanon), made me a CD of Arabic music. Some of the songs were just so cheerful and upbeat that I thought one of them would make a great piece.

Eventually, I decided to use a track by Ahmed El Sherif, a Tunisian artist who was a contestant in the TV show ?Star Academy Arab World? and also a former love interest of the wonderful Stephanie. I immediately emailed her to find out what the lyrics of the song ?Sahran Maak El Leila? means in order to create a choreography.

I wanted to base the dance on a duet or small group and introduce a party-like atmosphere with the audience. The performance at this hafla meant so much, as the standard of dancing was so high last year and I knew there would be a whole host of greats this year!

A very good friend of mine started belly dance classes earlier in the year and originally, she was going to perform with me. However, I don?t think she felt confident enough to continue and left the class. Although we are still great friends, I think dancing is something you either have a passion for or you don?t. Anyway, I was left with half a choreography written with us in mind and only myself to perform. Another member of the class soon stepped in and agreed to perform with me! I was thrilled, not only was there an added three years dancing experience, it meant we could get down to the finer details as soon as it was time to get rehearsing.

The music had an element of Spanish, so Layla and I tried to incorporate some of this into our dancing. After lots of concentration and many pieces of paper, I found myself singing along in Arabic and letting the music take the lead! Layla and I worked together to try and make it as interesting and fun as we could during rehearsals.

We performed my first ever choreography in Pinner on the 26th November and I can not express how exhilarating it felt to hear the audience clapping and cheering during (and after) the performance. Yes they were a great audience anyway, but some of the comments afterwards gave us such a boost and we couldn?t stop smiling. It wasn?t in any shape or form technically difficult or fancy, and most certainly wasn?t ?up there? with the rest but we think we did a good job because we really enjoyed ourselves
