Open to the public, the Bollywood Dance Workshop will take place in Cairo on 24 April.

The workshop is part of the 4th edition of India by the Nile, a multidisciplinary annual festival bringing Indian arts to Egypt.

The workshop will be led by a India-based French choreographer Gilles Chuyen.

Chuyen is also choreographer of Bollywood Love Story, a musical directed by Sanjoy Roy that will be performed in Cairo and Alexandria.

Similar workshops took place in past editions of the festival, proving very popular.

Last year, the open air area in front of Al-Midan Theatre filled with hundreds of attendees following the choreographer's moves and instructions.
