Welcome to Al-Arz !
Lebanese Art Group
Al-Arz Lebanese Art Group is the only arts organization dedicated to the creation, promotion and dissemination of Lebanese performing arts in Canada.
For over 40 years, Al-Arz (which means cedar) has been keeping alive Lebanon’s rich cultural heritage through Lebanese music, song, dance and theatre. Its original dance creations and elaborate theatre productions have been experienced by thousands of spectators across Canada and abroad.
From its weekly dance classes, to annual stage productions and uniquely tailored zaffés, Al-Arz stands at the intersection between Lebanese arts and culture, connecting Lebanese communities in Canada and the traditions that define Lebanon. It is both here and there, straddling two worlds rooted in openness and diversity. Al-Arz is the cultural and artistic bridge between Lebanon and Canada.
