Dabke Dance Workshop – 2/12 -UpC – 4pm
Dabke is a traditional Arab folk dance that’s been reclaimed by Palestinians as a form of cultural resistance to occupation and state violence. The workshop will be lead by members of the New York City Justice for Palestine, an organization which works continues to find creative approaches to discussing this issue, one being Dabke Workshops. They will open the workshop with a short history of Dabke Dance, relate it to Hip-Hop Dance, and then teach attendees how to do Dabke.
