Cairo or bust!

Karima Nadira at Ahlan Wa Sahlan, Cairo, Egypt

More than 10 trips to Egypt, including 7 trips to the Ahlan wa Sahlan Festival, completion of Raqia’s Teachers’ intensive, classes with leading Egyptian dancers and instructors, and immersion in the culture and people, have given me a rich perspective on Oriental Dance. ¬†Thanks to Morocco, whose always instructive trips opened doors and created many learning opportunities, I have acquired an excellent understanding of the roots of this dance and its solid grounding in the culture of the people of Egypt.
