Previous Events

Alexis Southall began hosting events in 2011. Her first event “Bellydance Vaudeville” was the first of its kind in the West Midlands, and led her to creating an annual fusion bellydance festival “Infusion Emporium”. Year after year, Infusion Emporium welcomes attendees and performers from all over the UK, Europe and beyond. Check out the previous IE events below.
