Open Stage

The open stage is an opportunity for Gothla UK 2018 attendees to perform in a club-style environment among peers. It is a low-pressure, high-fun atmosphere where we come with an open mind to see people’s own interpretations of what Gothic Bellydance is.

The Open Stage is for bellydancers attending Gothla UK ONLY. Please do not send your form unless you have booked your workshops.

Please also note that all attendees, including performers, are required to buy tickets for the show

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF FORMS IS: Thursday 31st May 2018. Any forms sent after this day will not be eligible. There will be no exceptions.

Rules summary
