Ein-Dor Folk Dance Group IZRAEL

Ein-Dor Folk Dance Group IZRAEL

Story of one Palestenian Village.

The leader of the group is Eman Basiony.

Arab dance dabke is very popular in Nazareth.  The originators of this art were not allowed to dance in public, therefore they had to create an activity involving less space, usually a room in a house. Dabke is a sequence of repeated, small steps. The children’s group from Nazareth uses the dance to honor their Palestinian traditions. Ein-dor is the name of a displaced village located near Nazareth. This referance of their complex history articulates how the children face problems related to their origin. Through dance they actively work on rediscovering their cultural identity.
