I enjoyed Tannoura while visiting Cairo with my friends. Tannoura is a traditional Egyptian folk dance that showcases costumes, captivating music, and mesmerizing twirling movements. It is a unique cultural experience that will leave you entertained by the rich heritage of Egypt.

To secure a good seat for the performance, you should arrive early. Wekalet El Ghouri can get crowded especially during peak tourist seasons, so getting there ahead of time ensures a better viewing experience.

The show happens twice a week, Wednesday and Saturday. It gets crowded, but we arrived 45 minutes early and got our tickets there instead of going through a 3rd party. The traffic is horrendous and the streets are crowded. The show is stupendous---musicians, and 2 sets of dancers. Beware....go to the bathroom before going. The toilets are dirty.

We attended this dance show without any knowledge or expectations and were just blown away. The setting is in an open air atrium of the Wekalet El Ghoury arts center right near the Bazaar. It makes for an intimate but spectacular experience with a professional lighting and sound. The troupe had solo performances, a musical band and singer and group performances of the Egyptian version of whirling dervish dance. The finger cymbal player in particular had a very engaging personality as did the central dancer in the trio performance. Overall, an impressive show of ability and talent. I highly recommend seeing this - it’s a unique experience to have in Cairo.

If you ever visiting Al Husain area you must see this show, it is part of the Egyptian history. It will be a night to remember.

The show is amazing! I could have saved at least 25 USD had I taken a cab and paid the 80 EGP at the entrance by myself... The agency representative accompanies you but s/he is does not have any information regarding the history of the dance or of the building... But I did feel as a VIP with my security guard :-)

A must see. Lots of vibrant energy, high vibe music with amazing dancing.
No video allowed but photos with no
Flash allowed. We had three people in front that continued to film and the organisers kept saying no film and the attendees showed no respect and kept trying to film which was rather distracting - the organisers should have showed them to the door with no refund.

This is the best tannoura (whirling dervish) you will ever see so go! You see tannoura at dance shows and on the boats but this is the real deal with great dancers and musicians in an authentic show and a wonderful location
