    Default Got questions for Dr. Hassan Khalil?

    Dr. Hassan Khalil has agreed to an interview with OrientalDancer.net - I have lot's of questions for him but thought I'd welcome your questions too.

    He is the founder and was general director of the Egyptian National Ensemble for Folklore, the famous Kaomeya Troupe. Is a specialist for choreographies for films, he directed many dances in Egyptian movies. He was dance trainer for Samia Gamal, Naima Akeef, Tahia Carioka, Hodda Shamseddin etc and choreographer for famous Egyptian Dancers like Nagua Fouad , Halla al Safi, Amira-Princess of Cairo, Iman Hamdi and other more...

    If you're curious about something post it here and I'll try to work it in
