In this Thursday, May 28, 2015 photo, whirling dervish Ali Taha, a member of the Al-Tannoura Egyptian Heritage Dance Troupe, waits backstage before a performance, at the El Sawy culture center in Cairo, Egypt. The dancers earn between 100 and 250 Egyptian pounds (between $13 and $32) per performance. But many of them describe it as far more than just a job. “I’m ready to dance for free, especially with the Mawlawiyah dervishes,” said Taha. “While whirling I feel like a white bird flying in the sky.” (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
