You get a 24 pack of the 8 different poses for $4.99. A great stocking stuffer idea, don’t you think?

After learning about the Ballerina Project, an ongoing series that documents dancers in urban settings across the globe, Taher was inspired to carry out a similar undertaking in the Egyptian capital.
