This Ballet Dance Through Cairo’s Streets Might Be The Most Mesmerising Video We’ve Seen
An Egyptian ballet group teamed up with a Dubai-based fashion label for this spellbinding clip…
Vintage-inspired dresses and classical dance might just be the most magical of pairings.
We’ve come to that conclusion after watching dance troupe Ballerinas of Cairo’s latest video, which shows performers plié and pirouette through the Egyptian city’s streets.
And, instead of donning traditional leotards and tutus for the occasion, the performance art group teamed up with a Dubai-based fashion label to create a truly head-turning result.
The dance company joined with Bambah Boutique, the womenswear store in City Walk 2, to kit dancers out in Fifties-influenced dresses rich in floral prints and plush fabrics.
The video has gone viral in just a few short days, already garnering more than 375,000 views and 11,000 likes since it was uploaded on Sunday.
And we’re not surprised – the chic gowns, heartstring-tugging music and rustic pathways all come together for a sequence that we’ve had on repeat all day.
“When fashion and art meet culture,” the boutique captioned a still from the shoot, adding that the ballerinas “literally stopped traffic” in Cairo.
The Dubai boutique is the brainchild of Egyptian designer Maha Abdul Rasheed, and its vintage-inspired, ready-to-wear collection can be spied across the Instagrams of the city’s style stars.
The line is renowned for its bold florals, jewel-toned laces, and period-inspired silhouettes – all of which the Ballerinas of Cairo show off with flair in the video.
Now, if we could only learn to move in them with the grace of these girls…
