Salah El Brogy
Hailing from Egypt, dancer/choreographer Salah El Brogy is a graduate of the Cairo Opera House Contemporary Dance School Theatre, where he trained in dance, acting, singing, theatre and music - turning him into an all round artist. He has a variety of dance backgrounds, from ballet to hip hop, street dance, folklore, Latin, jazz and capoeira.
Starting his life with martial arts at the tender age of eight, Salah eventually joined his home city's Ismailia Folkloric Dance Troupe in his teens. However, Salah has had a constant thirst for the next challenge and subsequently joined the Reda Troupe, the first and biggest folklore dance company in the Middle East. He also earned a place in the prestigious Cairo Opera House Contemporary Dance Theatre School, and stayed with the Company upon graduating as one of its main dancers. In 2008 he received the Best Dancer Award from Egypt’s French Cultural Centre (now French Institute), and the following year he choreographed, performed and toured his solo Adrenalin. From 2010-2012 Salah worked as lead dancer for Akram Khan Company's Vertical Road, and he joined Protein in the summer of 2013.
