This 2 centre break has a great balance of dance classes, shows and sightseeing.
This amazing week starts at our resort hotel on the outskirts of Cairo. Our hotel has a pool and includes breakfast and dinner. We have a class with the amazing Dandash, one of Cairos top dancers and a class with Kay Taylor, one of the UK’s best known dancers. Also a show with our own band.
Then we move to Downtown Cairo to soak up the atmosphere and explore Cairo itself. Time to shop, try local cafes, go sightseeing, buy costumes and see dance shows.
The end of our trip crosses over with Ramadan. This is a very special time in Cairo, the shops will be full of Ramadan displays and sugar dolls.
