Farrah: Fananat al Raks al Masri, The Egyptian Dance Artists

About Us . Repertoire . Performance . Gallery . Contact Us . Links


Farrah is dedicated to learning and performing a range of Egyptian classical and folkloric dances in a vibrant stage form that remains true to the dances' origins.

Choreographers include the famous Egyptian master teachers Mahmoud Reda, Aida Nour, Madame Raqia Hassan and Magdy El-Leissy; international teachers Saara and Henna; well-known local figure Amera Eid; and of course our own Päivi Mielikäinen. We have also been commissioned to prepare and perform original works for specific events.

Our repertoire spans the length and breadth of Egypt, along with some styles from other regions. It includes:

  • Baladi
  • Saidi
  • Rakset el Asaya
  • Nubian
  • Ghawazee
  • Haggalah
  • Zar
  • Fallahin
  • Classical and modern Egyptian (Raks Sharki)
  • Veil Dance
  • Shamadan (Candelabra)
  • Melaya el-Luff
  • Melaya Baladi
  • Khaleegy
  • El Muwassah (Arabic-Andalusian)

Information about each of these styles is coming soon...

Farrah is also available for performances to bring an authentic Egyptian flavour to your event, concert or fundraiser. Contact us for more information.
