Dabke is a type of circle and line dance that is performed at joyous occasions in Middle Eastern communities across the world, particularly those with Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian, Iraqi, and Palestinian roots and heritage. While Palestinian dabke is a cultural and traditional form of expression, it has also become a powerful symbol of resistance. Join us as we welcome the Al-Asala Dabke group, based in London, Ontario, for a dabke performance on Saturday, February 19th and a dabke workshop on Sunday, February 20th.
