All workshops and performance showcases offered at RAQS BRITANNIA are intended for people who are in robust health. Make sure you have completed your regular stretching routine before commencing a class or performance and, to reduce risk of injury, never force or strain yourself. Although we strive to provide a safe environment for all participants, you must accept the risk of injury or damage resulting from the execution or practice or techniques presented by teachers or performers at RAQS BRITANNIA.

Please note that the open stage at RAQS BRITANNIA is intended primarily to showcase the dance and choreography skills of the many talented individuals within the belly dance community. When choosing your performance title and style, please consider whether RAQS BRITANNIA is the appropriate forum for your showcase. BDSS may at its discretion elect to cancel without notice or require alterations to an open stage performance if, in its reasonable opinion, the proposed performance is excessively provocative, not consistent with the overreaching aesthetic of the belly dance style (as it is generally recognised) or the aims and objectives of the festival. If you are in any doubt, please contact Jesse Stanbridge in our London office (020 7456 8905 or email email@example.com).
