Family Dabkeh Dance Workshop with Fares Farraj

This workshop runs as part of Horizons Festival’s free creative family programme, led by Community Arts Northwest Artists who have taken part in the Pushing Boundaries programme. Pushing Boundaries supports artists from new migrant backgrounds, including those who have experienced forced migration to develop facilitation skills for working in schools. The programme was led and developed by Community Arts Northwest and Curious Minds.

Take part in a lively dance workshop led by Fares Farraj, introducing Dabkeh, the traditional Palestinian folk-dance style. Play fun rhythmic movement games, learn basic Dabkeh steps and create a short performance piece. Don’t forget to wear comfortable clothes, bring water and come with an open mind.
