Founded in 2003 Mersin aims to provide top level entertainment for a variety of events. All our members have studied this dance for many years and perform as soloists in addition to working for our group. By bringing together talented dancers we can ensure a constantly high standard of performance and a depth of knowledge and experience. We love to dance together and this is reflected in our confident performance style.

Mersin cannot perform for no fee, even for a charity event. Should you wish us to donate our fee to your charity, please contact us direct. We retain the right to provide a smaller group, or less experienced dancers for charity events.
Mersin believe they offer a wide range of wonderful costumes for the hirer to select from, but if you would like to discuss your requirements further please feel free to contact us.
For an event where it would be best for the dancers to be more covered we have matching “Saiidi” dresses. Where you would like a large number of dancers who all match we have our “sweetie shop” costume with a choice of either purple or metallic skirts, or funky blue trousers. We can also mix this costume to fit with your theme with skirts in blues/greens or reds/pinks. With six weeks notice and an additional charge we can organise skirts to match your party theme in almost any colour. We all also own very high quality costumes in bright colours with a mix of crystals, beautiful beadwork and cut outs in the modern Egyptian style, and although they don’t all match they do give a very high quality look. Due to wear and tear we can not wear our high end costumes for events held outside or in smoky rooms. For these kind of performances we offer two choices of costume, a beautiful purple costume that picks up a breeze and looks really impressive even at a distance, and our mix and match brights, where each dancer can either wear a block of bright colour, or we can all mix up to produce a kaleidoscope of colour.
Varisha is a qualified make up artist and always makes sure we have a very professional look to match our costumes.
Our more “High quality” costumes. Each dancer has a number of designer costumes of this standard in a variety of colours. Most are this very modern Egyptian style.
Finally this is our “Mix and Match” costume. Each dancer has at least two colours they can select from and an endless supply of brightly coloured skirts. This kit is perfect for large events or where you would like a quick change, perhaps starting with everyone in a block of colour and then finishing with this kind of mix. In smaller groups we can follow your theme with everyone in shades of red/pink or blues and greens.
The “Sweetie shop” costume, with bright coloured skirts
This beautiful “Purple kit” has big skirts and big sleeves that really make an impact at outside events. The skirts are also very popular to add to our Sweetie shop kit above for weddings where Cadbury’s purple is the theme colour theme
