What the RLAP office does on days off =)

This Saturday afternoon found the majority of the Resettlement Legal Aid staff chowing down on delicious Iraqi cuisine and learning dubka dancing in one of our translator’s living rooms.

A couple weeks ago I posted a video of some Iraqi friends dancing dubka in a park. Apparently it’s a competitive form of entertainment across the Middle East.

“…this kinda looks like Palestinian dabke “Palestinian traditional dancing” that i told u about in Abu Dhabi, thou Palestinian dabke looks a bit better.

Maher: Well I’m sure that you know about Palestinian dabka just as much as I know about Iraqi dabka which is nell. I’m sure Iraqi dabka is much better than this and I’m sure that if i tried to do a palestinian dabka it would look worst than this. BTW modern Palestinian dabke is combined with contemprary dancing and figurative dancing which are combined to tell a story “mostly about the palestinian struggle or sometimes about Palestinian traditional stories”. so maybe you can tell me more about Iraqi dabka.
Ps; never let lily video u guys again 😛

PS–Since some of these people are refugees, I removed last names to respect privacy.
