Oasis Camp Egypt

March 18-30, 2018

13 days & 14 nights of Egypt including Nile cruise!

People who want to explore the dance, music, antiquities, and food of Egypt now have a unique opportunity to travel to the country and be immersed in the culture. A once-in-a lifetime trip from March 18-30, 2018 is being made possible through the efforts of Jean Courter, longtime organizer of the Oasis Dance Camps in the U.S., and Egyptian tour director Ehab Mahmoud. Cassandra will bring her experience as dancer, Egyptophile, and world traveler to share with participants.

“This tour is different and special, even from other dancer tours offered in Egypt,” said Courter. This tour is a cultural emersion experience, not a dance workshop.

For more information, check out the Oasis Dance Camp website or read all about your exciting trip of a lifetime in this edition of Beledi Beat!
