Wall Dabke is Now a Thing?

It started with this video from Australia spreading on Facebook and now people want to imitate it and some as going as far as using the ceiling to dance upside down.

We earlier had Tirashrash and Jenno Notto, please don’t make this trend!


Amusing flash mob at Beirut Airport

Two friends of mine just shared this video on Facebook! Looks like some of Beirut airport staff performed on March 5th 2011 a dabke dance inside the airport premises to the rythm of a Houwwara song, and it turned out pretty cool!

I have no idea why did they do it, but I loved how people of all ages were participating, kudos!

Here’s another video, shot on March 4th, of a rehearsal for the dance. According to Biba from +961’s page on Facebook, the dance was done for an ad for Beirut Duty Free.

Tollab, a federation that unites all the Lebanese student associations of Montreal, are planning to set a world records on the 20th of June by forming the biggest Dabke chain that will place Montreal in the Guinness Book of records. Their aim is to gather at least 3,500 people at the Marcelin-Wilson Park on the 20th of June to dance the dabke, hand-in-hand, for at least 5 consecutive minutes.

This event will be part of the “Festival Libanais de Montreal” from 19 to 21 of June 2009 at the park located in “11301 Bd de l’Acadie”.

Keep in mind that this event is not exclusively for the Lebanese living in Montreal, so regardless of your nationality you can participate in setting the world record, as the main  purpose of the event is to unite all Lebanese and Montrealers of all colors, religions, names or cultures, who are willing to participate.
