To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, SEQUINS ON MY BALCONY, my one woman show directed by Peta Lily, will be returning to the wonderful Rosemary Branch Theatre in Islington for six nights from 14-19 October, where it made its debut in November 2012.
It's a new revitalised version of my show about cancer, sisterhood, belly dance, and the importance of settling for nothing less than a sparkling life. Join me on a surprising journey spanning Hoochie Coochie Girls, hospital corridors, the banks of the Nile and the boudoir of Mata Hari - all in the space of one hour!
The Rosemary Branch Theatre, 2 Shepperton Road, London N1 3DT.

The show is supporting Cancerkin, an excellent breast cancer charity based at the Royal Free Hospital in London, where I teach regular dance classes.
“Yvette’s relationship with Cancerkin is far more than just supporting us at her inspiring performances of Sequins on my Balcony; she also runs sessions combining dance and laughter yoga to other breast cancer patients at Cancerkin. These classes introduce the joy of dancing - from Bollywood and Belly Dance to the Charleston and Samba Reggae - and bring a smile to everyone’s face at what can be a very distressing time” - VICTORIA TODD, CEO Cancerkin
Come and join the party!
