Faten still teaches but no longer performs, unfortunately. I was lucky to study privately with her when she first arrived in the US in about 1976. I was delighted to see that she'd produced a number of instructional and demonstrative dvds. Is the quality perfect? Maybe not, but she's a superb teacher. If you're interested in folkloric dance as well are Oriental, and want to learn from a true Egyptian dancer, you must get these while you can. I don't know that they'll be around forever, and I'm taking no chances!
