Al Tannoura Egyptian Heritage Dance Troupe

Dance in Cairo

Egypt’s only Sufi dance troupe – more raucous and colourful than the better-known white-clad Turkish dervishes – puts on a mesmerising performance three times weekly at the Wikala of Al Ghouri just off Sharia Al Azhar. It’s a great opportunity to see one of the medieval spaces in use; arrive about an hour ahead to secure a seat.
