Dance Classes

I am happy to arrange belly dance classes in Cairo. I use Yasmina of Cairo, Mohamed Khazafy, and Sara Farouk. I will price these in as options if you want an included dance class. Numbers will dictate where these are held - but it will be in a mirrored dance studio. The teachers I choose to use regularly all offer something completely different and are good teachers with a wealth of experience.

If you would like classes or private lessons with Raqia Hassan, Aida Nour, Randa, Soraya, Leila, Aziza, Camillia or Dina - these can all be arranged, however you would not pay for them as an inclusive part of your trip, you would pay at the time.

Kasumi is a Japanese dancer and dance teacher who debuted at the 'Cairo Marriott Hotel' in 1997, and has danced at many top hotels and prestigious events since then.  She has also taken part in films and TV commercials and has danced in Japan as a special guest of the Reda Troupe.  She lives in Egypt at the moment. and is a regular dancer at 'Ahlan Wa Sahlan' where she also teaches.

Yasmina of Cairo
Yasmina helps behind the scenes with my Cairo trips. She teaches internationally and is in great demand. Her teaching style is gentle and precise. Because she is English, it is easy for her to explain more complex concepts. She always has some fantastic new material when I take groups for a class with her. Feedback is always that Yasmina's classes give people great material to take away.

Mohamed Khazafy
Trained with the Reda troupe and was their principal male dancer for several years. He came to the UK with the Farha Tour which kick started his solo career. He is a great dancer with a mischievous sense of humour and an international teaching career. He teaches oriental as well as Reda style. I am on a mission to get folks to study as much Reda style as possible - many of the steps are building blocks to an Oriental dance career. He speaks good English and is a really good teacher.

Sara Farouk
Sara made her name as teacher and performer in the UK (then Maureen O'Farrell). She moved to Egypt where she married her husband, Sherrif. Sara approaches dance and music in a different way to anyone else I know. I particularly love her dance sessions with Emad el Rashidy when he teaches you a song, then you dance to it. Sara makes things accessible that you never thought possible.
