  1. hey shawn ..Iam Marina who met u in the trip of Bani Hassan in Miniya
    miss u really..u seems be so cute really.. 🙂

  2. Your story inspired me in many ways. First, I came away with a greater understanding of what I’ve been doing for 70 years (I’m 78 years young!) and why I will never stop dancing.

    It also inspired me to post it where the 1500 dancers who visit A4D daily….can see it.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you,

  3. Hi. Someone shared “am i a dancer who gave up?” on Facebook. I can’t remember who now. Very inspiring to read. 2 suggestions for your site (like you have the time, I understand, but consider them when possible) Put a link back to your Facebook profile page so you are easy to find there. Add an RSS feed for your blog. I prefer to read my blogs there and I really appreciate your on the ground perspective of what’s happening in Egypt.

  4. We have a lot of parallel paths. From Twyla to Cairo. I am eager to communicate with you about several things. Great article in the Huffington Post.
