Celebrating Success: CrEd Student Shines Bright in Ballet and Theatre

In the realm of artistic excellence, CrEd International proudly celebrates the remarkable achievements of one of our own, Kariman Sobol, fondly known as Koky. This talented student has recently clinched top honours in ballet, a testament to her dedication, skill, and the transformative power of CrEd’s holistic educational approach.

Koky’s recent triumphs at a prestigious dance festival organised by Egypt’s premier ballet academy have left the industry abuzz. Despite being the youngest participant, she not only captured the grand prix from international juries but also secured the special prize from Ahmed Yehia, a renowned figure in Egyptian ballet. Her exceptional talent and outstanding performance have rightfully earned her the title of the best of the best.  

Beyond the realm of ballet, Koky’s journey with CrEd has been equally inspiring. Her portrayal of the Monkey in the Magic Tortoise during CrEd’s end-of-year play showcases not just her prowess in dance but also her blossoming performance abilities. This dual success in both ballet and theatre underscores the transformative impact of CrEd’s curriculum on young talents like Koky. 

At the heart of CrEd’s educational philosophy lie the 4 C’s of 21st-century skills: Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, and Critical Thinking. These foundational pillars empower students worldwide to excel on international stages, fostering a culture of excellence and innovation. Through our innovative approach, we nurture young talents like Koky, equipping them with the skills and confidence to shine on a global platform.  

Maija Lamu, the Head of CrEd in Cairo, reflects on Koky’s success, stating, “Koky’s achievements exemplify the transformative power of arts education. Her dedication, coupled with CrEd’s emphasis on the 4 C’s, has propelled her to remarkable heights. Koky’s success not only reflects her talent but also underscores how CrEd is changing the lives of young people in Cairo and beyond, empowering them to realise their full potential.” 

As CrEd continues to expand its offerings, including the prestigious Trinity College London exams in Speech and Drama, we remain committed to nurturing the next generation of artistic trailblazers. Koky’s journey stands as a shining example of the transformative impact of arts education and the boundless potential that lies within each young artist nurtured under the CrEd banner.

Koky’s mother, Lamiaa Saleh Abdel Wahab Ghonim explains enthusiastically, “Thank goodness that we have a channels for her passion for acting and dancing. So thank God for having CrEd in Egypt which is a real impressive organisation, and is channelling Kariman’s talents to gain confidence and performance skills and most importantly to enjoy her passion for the performance arts in Cairo.”
