A dancer with unlimited potential

Leila Gamal’s ease in movement has an underlying, subtle explosiveness that captures attention.
Leila’s onstage presence projects a vital femininity and a lyricism certainly comparable to the Egyptian dancers of the lyrical period such as Samia Gamal.”

Leila Gamal, a pro for over 3 decades, will teach you to move in controlled, undulating waves...Beginners chuckle at their first spastic convulsions, but the burn they feel in their abs, thighs, hips, and arms is no joke.
