Pre-booking required on Eventbrite
Join Sylvia and Zayd for Parent and Baby Dabke.
Come have fun and learn some basic Dabke steps for you and your little one. Whether you’re a parent or carer, it’s a perfect activity to do together, to get active, learn a new skill or just burn a little energy on a Saturday morning.
Dabke is a traditional Palestinian folkloric dance. This digital workshop will teach you some basic steps, and have a little fun. It’s designed especially for little ones and their parents, so no dance experience is required.
All ages welcome including sling babies.
This year, we’d planned a few dance workshops with El-Funoun Palestinian Dance Troup and Hawiyya Dance Company. This is part of our 2020 digital programme.

El-Funoun Palestinian Dance Troupe is an independent, non-profit artistic organization established in 1979 by a small number of enthusiastic, talented and committed artists. Since then, El-Funoun has been crowned as the lead Palestinian dance company in Palestine, as well as among Palestinians in exile. El-Funoun led over one thousand performances locally and internationally.
Hawiyya Dance Company is a women’s dance group who explore identity, culture and resistance through dance. Hawiyya aims to use more contemporary choreographic devices to explore narrative work and expression through this medium. The culturally diverse dancers have come together to unite and share their commitment to the Palestinian cause.
