Magdalena Monti was 5 years old when she discovered her passion for dancing. Going from classical courses to tango, she eventually developed an interest in Oriental dances. This led her to Egypt, where she found not only her lover but a place to live out her dream. Magda is from Tucuman, a city in the north of Argentina. She decided to visit Egypt in 2009 to see her boyfriend, Mohamed, whom she met on Facebook. Both of them belong to the world of music and show, which is how they were connected through the social network. Magda started belly dancing when she was 13. She didn’t have to wait long before beginning to perform on stage. Excited to arrive in Egypt and practice her passion on the The Pharaohs Nile cruise boat, she was soon disappointed, as the perception of belly dancers in Egypt was not what she had expected. Although she says she receives angry looks when she performs, Magda keeps on dancing.
