The Ramadan-ce title, is a clever word play around the two words 'Ramadan' and 'dance', and comes from John Drewry's Turkish Set which contains 20 dances, nearly all of a Middle Eastern flavour! Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured, from dawn until dusk. John describes this as a ‘fast’ dance!
