So get ready to shake your groove at the El Gouna Dance Festival, a three-day extravaganza organized by Brass Monkeys Studios and Eatducate! This inclusive event welcomes dancers of all levels and styles to celebrate the joy of movement.


Collaboration and Celebration

In collaboration with local health platform Eatducate by Nour el Ganzoury and Brass Monkey Studios by Yasmin el Rashidy, Menna Hesham, and Amr Taher, the El Gouna Dance Festival is set to emulate the international success of events like the Croatian Salsa Summer Festival in Rovinj, bringing the global spirit of dance to Egypt’s shores.


A Successful Journey

After the resounding success of El Gouna Dance Festival Volumes 1 and 2, the third edition is being held this weekend, and it promises to be even bigger and stronger. They will be taking over El Gouna with an unparalleled lineup of dance workshops, social nights, and performances. It’s an all-you-can-dance festival that caters to everyone from professionals to first-timers, beginners, and advanced dancers alike.
