Mahmoud Reda has been universally acclaimed for his dance with the strength of and appeal of a Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire.

In 1959 he founded the first folk dance company, The Reda Band, which consisted only of 15 members , all dancers.

Mahmoud Reda began traveling to every town in Egypt from South to North, East to West. He wanted to see everything about his own country: How people lived, acted, dressed, moreover, how they danced.

He had his cassette-recording camera with him at all the time; he was also photographing the people and recording the music.

Mahmoud Reda took the most important elements from each town in Egypt to create his own dance, thus creating Egyptian dance folklore to be put on stage.

Today,it has more than 150 talented members including dancers , musicians and technicians . The band has presented more than 300 shows including dances and folkloric songs , ballads , with different rhythm and different features creating an atmosphere of entertainment and happiness .
