belly dance class in cairo"When I teach, I want to give my students as much as they can digest. It is very rewarding to witness the progress."

Outi is a highly respected teacher. She has students all over the world and she also travels internationally to give workshops.

Outi emphasises building a strong technique on which the student can base her own dance style. Outi specializes in the Egyptian style of Oriental dance and interpretation of music, as well as many other Middle Eastern folkloric dances. She also does coaching for aspiring performers, sharing with them what she has learned when dancing for the demanding Egyptian audience.

Even though her repertoire consists of variety of subjects Outi has become known for her clever way of teaching Egyptian technique for foreigners. Her new on-line workshop is all about how to dance in a more Egyptian way. She is also frequently asked to teach milaya technique and dance routines. In addition to these topics and Egyptian style oriental (including balady and shaabi) Outi teaches most Egyptian folkloric styles (saidi, haggala, nubian, fellahi, ghawasee, simsimeya) as well as khalegy from the Gulf.

She is available for private classes in Cairo as well as workshops worldwide.

Contact Outi for rates and to arrange your class.
