Nymph Oriental Dance Company

In the summer of 2007 I founded my own company from my most talented students in the advanced group called the Nymph Oriental Dance Company. The company due to the intensive training has won a lot of various prizes at many competitions since its foundation and has taken part in prestigious theatrical performances, also performed in China, in Morocco several times, in Qatar at a Royal Family wedding, in Vienna, Cairo, Madrid, Stockholm, Paris, Barcelona just to name a few places, at the events of the Egyptian Embassy, exhibitions, various events and of course at Oriental Dance Festivals worldwide.

They move through threatening ghosts
Feeling them cool as mist On their brows.
They who dance 
Find infinite golden floors Beneath their feet.
