In this Thursday, April 23, 2015 photo, whirling dervish Sayed Abdel Basir, center, a member of the Al-Tannoura Egyptian Heritage Dance Troupe spins during a performance at the ?El Sawy cultural center in Cairo, Egypt. The dervishes perform across the city at cultural centers, cruise ships, hotels and weddings. The art form draws its roots from the ecstatic movements of Sufi Muslim mystics seeking a state of delirious oneness with God. (AP Photo/Amr Nabil)
