Camp Cairo: Artists and Schedule

Direct from Cairo! I've teamed up with some of my favourite Egyptian artists to bring you a top-notch training opportunity this summer - and you can do it all from the comfort of home! 3 workshops, 3 different styles, 3 unique artists sharing their passion for Egyptian dance. Find out more below:

Pinky Selim - Reda Style technique and Choreography

June 12, 12:00pm -2:00pm Eastern time

Pinky Selim is the Founder and Director of the AUC Alumni Folklore Troupe. Founded in 2013, Pinky's passion stems from her love of Egyptian Theatrical Folklore, and the Troupe's goal is to revive the legacy of Mahmoud Reda and the Reda Troupe in the younger generation of Egyptians. Pinky will take us through one of Mahmoud Reda's classic choreographies, focusing on the iconic styling and dynamics of the piece.  


Aicha Babacar - Baladi (+ a little Shaabi) styling

June19, 12:00pm -1:30pm Eastern time

Aicha Babacar has been one of Cairo's best kept secrets for years! Aicha, an Egyptian-Senegalese bellydance instructor, started her career16 years ago and was one of the first instructors in Egypt who created the concept of belly dance classes in gyms and fitness centres. Dancers absolutely fall in love with her after they experience her classes. Come see for yourself what all the buzz is about! 

Sahar Samara - Modern Egyptian style

June 26, 12:00pm -2:00pm Eastern time

Sahar Samara is undoubtably one of Cairo's biggest and brightest dance stars! A protégé of Aida Nour and Tito Seif, she perfectly fuses the fluidity of traditional Raqs Sharqi with her own unique strength and power. Sahar's style is truly one of a kind! She holds multiple performance contracts at prestigious venues in Cairo, and travels frequently to teach at dance festivals around the world.
