Nelly Fouad

This is Alexandrian dancer Nelly Fouad, another star of the Egyptian dance scene in the 70s. Her big break came when she filled in for Soheir Zaki one evening and this led to a long performing career including of course her iconic performances on the ‘Shwaya Baladi’ tapes that every dancer seemed to have. Nelly retired in the late 1980s but has now started teaching at Raqia Hassan’s festival in Cairo.
