Mr. Osama Emam is currently the General Director of Egyptian National Folklore Dance Troupe (Kaumeya). He is definitely the leader of today’s Egyptian folk dance. His dance career has never left the National troupe – the place of inspiration for his dance.
In 1973, Osama, who was then just a young boy, entered the Egyptian National Troupe Dance Academy. After 3 years of hard work, he was recruited to the Egyptian National Dance Troupe and began his illustrious dance career.
Many years later, Osama left his place of inspiration for 5 years, in order to travel further and to gain more experience. In that 5 year period, Osama joined his mentors performing in London, Switzerland and many places in Europe. The experience really opened his eyes. Subsequently, by the time he returned home to the Kaumeya National Troupe, he already had formed his own dance troupe, and had choreographed song and dance routines for many films.
He has represented Egypt in leading the National Kaumeya Dance Troupe to perform and take part in cultural exchanges worldwide. Apart from being an outstanding dancer and extremely creative teacher, he places great importance on expressing the cultural origins of the music and dance. He currently performs, teaches and judges both domestically and internationally and fervently promotes Egyptian dance culture.
