“Dabke strikes me as the most enchanting piece I’ve seen in a long while”Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times

In partnership with Dance Place

Recognized by the New York Times as one of the “Top Ten Dance Pieces of 2013”, Dabke is based on a Middle Eastern folk dance, a line dance often performed at weddings, holidays and community celebrations. The dance strongly references solidarity and traditionally only men participated. The dancers, linked by hands or shoulders, stomp the ground with complex rhythms, emphasizing their connection to the land. This beautiful, modern interpretation of this cross-cultural favorite explores themes of solidarity, tradition and the universal nature of dance. After the performance, learn how to do the dabke in our Community Room, when the performers become your teachers as we all celebrate community through dance.
