We are thrilled to bring you an encore workshop and show with this highly esteemed and accomplished master artist:

Egyptian Choreographer & Dancer Mohamed El Hosseny

Originally of Suez, Egypt and currently Director of El Hosseny Dance Company in Helsinki, Finland
Summer 2010 US Tour sponsored by Nourhan Sharif

“I just returned from Mohamed el Hosseny's  weekend workshop in San Francisco. Seen through the eyes of a contemporary theatrical dancer, we covered Simsimmiya, Beledi, and saucy Awalem styles. His workshop was like none that I've experienced before. He is a passionate, top-knotch performer, where dance and music beats through his every breath, and honestly he is the most precise technician I have ever seen. Zsuzsi as always was a wonderful host, and she and her colleagues organized the dance space and 2 fantastic shows held at the most perfect, charming venues. The  entire weekend event is one I will never forget. Days later, I am still high  on dancing. Thank you soooo much for bringing el Hosseny to California!”
