This is a must-see if you want to experience a unique (and disappearing?) part of Islamic culture. This is not only about the dancing (whirling dervishes) but also about the drumming, music and singing that induces the trance-like state of the performers. The whole event...More

The Tannoura is a beautiful, meditative dance form that is both inspiring and entertaining. These dancers will leave you enthralled with their hypnotic twirling and utter surrender.

We enjoyed going to the theatre and watching this traditional Egyptian dancing. The place in also nice. However, small and there was no enough chairs. You have to go early and stand in line to find a seat. It was for one and half hour,...More
