The Arab Quarter was set up in 2009 by Melanie Norman and Hassan Mostafa to create a centre of quality and excellence in the fields of Arabic dance and live music in London. TAQ has produced over 30 shows in London in venues of distinction and with national and international casts, namely Oriental Dreams and The Call of Arabia at The Bloomsbury Theatre, and The Arab Quarterly, London’s long running Arabic live music and dance stage show at Islington Assembly Hall and Hoxton Hall. TAQ has held live band workshops and classes throughout, empowering many dancers and passing on a depth of experience. The vision is long term and fuelled by passion for dance and music.
Thank you to all those good people who have in various capacities been part of our journey, without whom none of this would have been possible.
