    Hi there Hasna !!!
    I'm gonna be already at Cairo for the NileGroup festival that starts at the 18 June till 24, I'm leaving Cairo 26 morning so for sure we can all catch up together. (i'm gonna be at the Pyramissa hotel)

    Nour is teaching on the 23 June from 1.15 to 4.15 at the NileFestival (she is from the teachers of the festival) an Oum Kalthoum choreo, the workshop is 3 hours and I think around 30 or 35 euro per person.
    If you will be at Cairo, dont miss it, but you have to e-mail dance@nilegroup.net Suzane for booking (names, number of students etc).

    For me one of the best teachers for western dancers is Liza Laziza, she does more teqnical than choreo's but give the essense of the dance and she is great for small groups also.

    Now beside her I would say for folk Mohamed Shahin but he is arriving on Cairo from NY on the 26th (grrr just to miss him).

    For sure we have to meet, after all we are orientaldancersssssssssss

    Kisses Maria Aya

    Hi there again
    First i think that i have to clear the thing with the festivals.
    There are 2 festivals at Cairo that time
    NileGroup from 18 to 24 June and Ahlan wa sahlan I think it starts at 28 or something like that for a week also. Total unrelative both of them.
    For the NileGroup since you will be there at the 24 that is the closing night you cant buy tickets or something, its for the participants of the festival only.

    For Ahlan wa Sahlan I dont know more info.

    Liza's workshop is at 19 June (so you miss it) but you can contact her throu e-mail (ask at dance@nilegroup.net her e-mail, ot arrange a group lesson other time)

    Maria Aya
    p.s. yep send me your mobile at privite message

    Well, actually I don't know so much..I am faithful to Nile group festival, because people who are there really care about the dance and they are giving all they can to make your stay unforgettable.
    I heard lot of negative comments about Ahlan wa sahlan festival, which is much more expensive and less quality, but it is just other people's words, since I haven't visited it.Even my first teacher who was attending that festival for several years doesn't want to go any more, she is going to Nile group.
    If you need additional information about Ahlan wa sahlan, I suppose that you can find it on Raqia Hassan's website, because she is the organiser of that festival.Her web is Flash Intro.
    I wish you good luck and if you go, drop us some comments!
    Happy dancing!
