About the Author

While living in Egypt, Cheri Berens worked with the Egyptian Ministry of Culture researching and documenting the Egyptian culture through its traditions, festivals and celebrations. Cheri has researched, filmed and documented various regional traditions, Sufi sects, and the traditional music and dances unique to the various regions of Egypt. First-hand experiences while living and working in Egypt, attending university in Egypt, and her eventual marriage to an Egyptian gave Cheri an in-depth, uncensored view of an Islamic society that she documents in her book, An American Woman Living in Egypt. Cheri's dance experience in Egypt is extensive as well. She has studied with some of the most well-respected artists in Egypt: Mahmoud Reda, Ibrahim Akef, Mohammad Khalil, Farida Fahmi, Raqqia Hassan and many others. She has also trained with various folkloric troops throughout Egypt which specialize in regional folklore. Previous to living in Egypt, Cheri was a legal researcher and trial brief writer. Prior to that, Cheri was head of the legal department for two daily newspapers. Cheri has a BA in Communications with a certification in Paralegal Studies.
