In the Egyptian capital Cairo, a large audience applauded wholeheartedly after a Chinese ballet troupe presented a series of short programs including classical and modern ballet shows.

The shows were performed by members of the National Ballet of China (NBC) who are visiting Egypt and hosted by the Chinese Cultural Center in Cairo.

"This is my first time to watch a Chinese ballet show and it is really amazing. The performances told us stories about the Chinese culture," Samar Seif, an Egyptian employee at transportation company, told Xinhua.

Seif, who used to practice ballet when she was a little girl, said she came to the show with her friends to get some knowledge about the Chinese ballet art.

After upgrading the relations between China and Egypt to a comprehensive strategic partnership in 2014, cultural exchange has been at its peak as artists, cultural and musical delegations have paid frequent visits.
