The Middle East has a rich tradition of folk dance. Every district has its own local tunes, songs and dances.There is some special song or dance for every event of rural life.
A birth or a wedding, the death of a loved one, sowing the field and harvesting the crops or leading the flocks to water. Some of the songs and dances have to do with a particular craft or work, some have fertility or good luck as a theme, while others express the timeless feelings of a man, joy and sadness, the longing of an exile for home and the homeland, love and affection for the beloved. Each year we will provide Turkish folk dance and an intro to Arabic folk dance.
