Egma was a Dutch Eurodance project, produced by Ege van Kruysdijk and Marcel Theunissen, primarily active between 1991-95. The name of the project came from first two letters of producers names "Eg" and "Ma".

The project went through a couple of vocalists during the years. Starting with Never Gonna Loose Your Love performed by Ilse Geels and Henk Van de Wiel (former model) the project was joined by another singer, a female named Margot "Margo" Smulders (aka Keira Green). By the time of the single Make My Day Henk had left the project and a dancer/rapper Michael Robby joined instead (he also performed in ZOO Inc.).

Ege and Marcel also produced others projects like Usha, No Sense, Revolution Team, Wonderland, Sound Victory, Camen, The Company, BWX, Central Seven.

They never made video clips, but some of live acts can be found from videos of Dance Machine 3 and 6.

On March 8, 2002, Henk van de Wiel was murdered in Paris as a result of robbery.
