|Dr Mo (Geddawi)|
Mo was born in Cairo to an educated Saiidi family who enjoyed music, dance, and the arts. He studied ballet as a young boy and at 11 was fond of sneaking backstage to meet singers and dancers. As a young man he studied pharmacy while continuing his interest in diving where he meet Mahmoud Reda and was an inaugural member of the Reda Group. He has appeared in numerous films and on TV.
Mo left Egypt in 1964 when it became illegal to have two jobs – and he had more than two! Politics also meant he had to leave as a dancer rather than a pharmacist. However, within a few years he was dancing/choreographing in Beirut while doing his MD. From there, he moved to Berlin to do his PhD and form the Hathor Dance Troupe.
In 1999 he finally quit medicine and is now involved full time in teaching and choreography.
