UW SJPs Debka Lessons Night 1

UW-Madison Students for Justice in Palestine
Thursday, February 23 at 7 PM – 8 PM
Location to be announced

Have you been interested in learning how to debka?

Debka is an Arab folk dance. Debka originated in Palestine where houses were built using stone with roofs made of wood, straw, and dirt. Builders used this dance to compact and stomp the roof flat while singing traditional songs.

Join SJP to learn how to dance debka with the leader of a Milwaukee-based Palestinian debka troupe, Sanabel al-Quds! We will have a wide range of lessons for beginners to more advanced dancers.
