Traditional Syrian Dance
Syria has known, through its long history, most of the kinds of folklore dances, but unfortunately those who wrote about folklore dance couldn't write in details about this art. "The Heritage of Dabka" a book written by the late writer "Adnan Bin Zurail” is considered one of the most important refernces about the art of dance. Bin Zurail gives detailed information about the traditions and development of Dabka. He also shows special interest in the dance of "Samah “ as one of the old inherited kinds of body expressions, very popular in all the Syrian regions. Samah was taught as a respectable and bashful kind of dance , with deep rules, special wording of songs and ballads, tunes and rhythms.

Folklore dance in Syria was not merely a Dabka (beating the ground with feet in regular steps), but rather it was accompanied by rhythmic movements with men carrying swords or canes. Some kinds of dance were expressionist, while others were social or valorous.

The present generation of dancers of Aleppo, learnt the Samah from Omar alBatsh, Abdulwahab Seifi, Saleh alBoshi, Adnan Mnini, Omar Aqqad and others. It has been said that men in Aleppo used to dance this kind of group dance and still do so until now. They attributed it to Sheikh Aqil of Munboj, one of the Sufis who inherited it from the ancestors and developed it, devising new movements of feet, which the dancer, whether male or female, should follow and sing while moving his /her hands. Sheikh Aqil used to call his followers who used to dance Samah "sons of art “A "son of art" should usually learn many tunes so that he can join the group any time, any where, and follow their steps harmoniously.

Of the most famous dances in Syria is the Dabka, a dance of several light coordinated steps with movements of the body that express vivacity of the males and tenderness of the females, accompanied by frequent organized movements of feet, beating the ground in harmony with a drum, a flute or any other country musical instrument.

Usually Dabka is danced on songs, ballads or lyrics, any poetical sentences inherited from the predecessors heritage, usually composed by anonymous people who didn't study at any institute or conservatory . Dabka is famous in Syria due to the lightness of movements, diversity of tunes and the joy it gives during performance. Hence every region of Syria has its own type of Dabka; Hawran, Deir Ezzor, Khan Sheikhoun, Salamieh, Hama, Qalamoun, and the Syrian coast.


Featured Syrian Dance Company
Syrian Dance Theatre Group Enana
Enana is the only professional dance theatre group in Syria. “The group was formed about 13 years ago and it’s the only one of its kind,” says Ms Belova, recalling how none had come forward to learn dance in Syria when she first landed there. “A professional school came up only eight years ago and still is the only one in the entire nation,” she adds. “But we are trying our best to train young persons and because of our endeavours a number of people are becoming interested in theatre and dance,” says Ghied. Ghied and Albina, besides being the major driving force behind the group, also acted in the plays as Raslan and Badrieh.
