Oriental Dance Teachers in Cairo

Many dancers come to Cairo to experience the Egyptian feeling. Some of the athmosphere is taken from the day-to-day life, just watching people in the streets, shops and cafes. If you are lucky, try to get an invition to peoples home or some of their party. For perfecting one's dance skills there are many teachers available. Here is contact information for the ones I have taken classes and a few more.

If you are in need of a map, I can recommend a map from Cairo Guide, printed by AUC. You can get it from AUC book store beside Tahrir and it’s only about £E 35. There is a lot of more information than any other tourist map.

For the telephone or mobile numbers I have included all the information needed when called form abroad. If you are using mobile in Cairo the numbers are still valid. The ‘+’ (or as usually written in Egypt ‘00’) is for calling to abroad. The next ‘20’ is code for Egypt. When calling to landlines ‘02’ is code for Cairo. If you use Egyptian code the first ‘0’ is emited. When calling to mobile numbers the first ‘0’ of the number is emited. For example mobile +20 100 123 4567 works as 0100 123 4567 inside Egypt. Landline +20 2 1234 5678 works as 02 1234 5678 from mobiles and 1234 5678 from other landline phones.
