This was our 2nd year and this time Maya was super special as we hosted the festival LIVE FROM CAIRO. This year we had-

1. Lubna Emam teaching us Baladi (first time in India virtually)

2. Shahrzad to teach us a much-needed technique class and a modern oriental combinations and inspirations class.

3. Mohammed Kazafy teach us two amazing choreography classes on the topics of Muwashahat and Saidi! 

And with that, we had a fun interview with costume designer- MAGDA MADELA on special costume tips and ideas.
