Atiaat was born in a village outside Cairo. After some training in folkloric she became a soloist at 13. Fifi Abdou is very much the bint al balad. Her dancing can be provocative and some people find her act vulgar, but her down to earth dance style can be exquisite. She has not danced in public since about 1999 (or 2004). She has also acted and danced in a large number of films.
