Biography
Seona Dancing was a 1980s British pop group best known for providing Ricky Gervais with his first taste of fame.
The band was formed in 1982 by aspiring pop stars Bill Macrae and Ricky Gervais. They were signed to London Records. Their single "More to Lose", released in 1983, only made it to number 70 on the Billboard charts, follow up "Bitter Heart" reached number 79 in the UK charts, and the band quickly disbanded in 1984. A year later, in 1985, a DJ from 99.5 DWRT-FM in Manila in the Philippines started playing a song called "Fade" by Medium (also billed as "Medium" by Fade). It became a runaway hit, and the angsty theme song for many Filipino teenagers in the mid 1980s. Eventually, the identity of the song was revealed as "More to Lose" by Seona Dancing. Bill Macrae faded into obscurity, but years later Ricky Gervais found new fame as the co-writer and star of the hit BBC comedy The Office, and follow up Extras.
(Gervais managed Suede for a short time in their early days. Not thinking they would make it big, he dropped them.) (www.allmusic.com)

Rumi was the original dance mystique associated with turning your inner self, and this dance has become the art of worship for his followers. Dance has been used for centuries by cultures around the world to honor and worship a higher power
