I went to Tanoura shows many times, and It never failed to surprise me!!
I always back home happy and enjoy my nights there , the staff of the dancers and musicians are always smiling and doing a really great performance , their clothes are always clean and ironed and that is something that I really like and respect as well..
If you are a tourist or even a local don't miss that!

The place will give you an overdose of sight of Egypt indeed.
The place which was used as a mall with rooms so traders coming from Syria, china etc can stay in. It is turned now to an art center with the Tanura performance.
The performance is unique as it is a mix of Sufi, Folklore whirling as well as folklore music.
it is all over the year on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday at 7 or 8 pm depend on the season.
Ticket for locals are 5 EGP and 35 for non-Egyptian.

We went and watched a tanoura dance show at this centre and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Cairo. The dancers and musicians were colourful and vibrant. It was an amazing insight into culture and art. The building itself is interesting set in the heart of the Islamic community in Cairo.

Of course, it being Cairo, the event started much later than advertised and tempers among the audience were wearing thin by this point - but it was a good event in a lovely venue (though very cold in February, especially during the over-long wait). A very well-restored caravanserai, well worth seeing on its own, and of course set off very well by the whirling dervish dancers. Show much longer than advertised - if you go, be prepared for a long event. Worth seeing - a stunning and memorable dance, but "rough edges" to the venue (start time, advertising of duration) could be improved upon.

We have been to this show several times and always bring our guests when they are visiting Cairo. Make sure you check the days and times for the show because they change with the seasons. We have taken our young daughter (3 years old) and she was mesmerized. It is located right in the heart of Cairo's nightlife, so be sure to spend some time walking around before and after the show.
