Nelly Fouad is a legendary and beloved star of Egypt. She enjoyed a long career in the 1970s and 80s performing in top Cairo nightclubs at five-star hotels such as the Semiramis, Hilton, and Marriott. She also had a film career, dancing in several Egyptian films. Nelly is from Alexandria and her style of shimmies and hip circles reflects this origin. In recent years, she has begun to teach and is now involved with many workshops and classes at Cairo festivals. She brings a lot of warmth and exuberance to her teaching style which makes her very popular with her international students. In this video, she teaches a very cute Shaabi choreography using the cane as a prop. This is a very special opportunity to learn from a legendary dancer.
