Mohamed Kazafy
Mohamed Kazafy, co-organiser of Shimmy in the City, is famous around the world as one of the principal soloists with Egypt’s famous Reda Troupe. As a young boy, Kazafy was taken under the wing of the troupe’s legendary founders, Mahmoud Reda and Farida Fahmy and trained in the high art of Egyptian folkloric dance.

He was elevated to principal soloist and went on to perform with the Reda Troupe in dozens of countries worldwide. He still remains one of their principal soloists.

In recent years Kazafy began to tour the world as a dancer and master teacher. He is loved by dancers world-wide for his superb technique, his elegant Reda styling and his ability to break down moves and present choreography in a clear, focussed way.

Audiences adore Kazafy’s beautiful, graceful dancing, his energy and his superb musicality. He has also recently created a troupe in Greece which will be performing with him at Shimmy in the City.
