Check out the dabke class series every Tuesday starting August 8th taught by Ayman, the director of the professional dance team – Thowra Dabke. The two most common types of Levantine dabke will be taught; 12-count (2 stomp) and 6-count (1 stomp). All classes are 1 hour long and are held in person at the Annex of the Arab American National Museum located at 13624 Michigan Ave, Dearborn, MI 48126.

There will be 3 levels of classes offered from 6-9pm; beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

In the beginner series you will learn the proper technique and all of the fundamentals with a few variations. This series is meant to allow one to follow along in a dabke line

In the intermediate series you will learn more complex steps and timing, combining multiple moves together. This series is meant for one to be able to lead a dabke line.

In the advanced series you will learn even more complex moves and variations. This series is meant to allow one to comfortably lead a line with the most complex freestyle moves and be able to join a dabke team. All classes build on the previous one.


Classes can also be done virtually!
