It was Luxor african film festival that first started holding a “Basics of Ballet’’ Workshop for Kids ranging from 8 to 14 years for the first time in Luxor and upper Egypt with ballerina Yasmeen Elhawary.
This is considered as an extension to the journey of the festival to engage locals and make them involved, participate in the festival’s cultural and artistic events and learn from it.
Ballet as a sophisticated art makes it the perfect new chapter in spreading arts in Upper Egypt through the Festival.
