Panel 7 pm - Discussion on Egyptian dance and globalization - Beginning
with dance in Egypt

lead to the decline in Raks Sharqi (people blame Egyptians for that,
but the government had a lot to do with it). What hopes there are
for the future of the dance in a more open society. Is it more open?
Have foreigners carried the dance torch during these oppressive years
or have they manipulated the dance to be more Western? Can Egyptians
reclaim the dance on their own terms? How is Egyptian
dance surving now? What are the changes in Egypt and worldwide. Q
