The dance section of the Al-Arz Lebanese Art Group is the cornerstone of the organization. Its dancers make up what is recognized as North America’s leading Lebanese dance group, known for their incomparable dance creations. Al-Arz has created a unique and dynamic style of Lebanese dance that is inspired by folklore and characterized by fluid movement and formations that challenge traditional definitions of dabké.
Al-Arz Lebanese Art Group participates and presents approximately 30 performances a year and includes all types of artistic, cultural and community events. Al-Arz also tailors its performances to accommodate the needs of corporate events, private functions, public celebrations and festivals in the Ottawa-Gatineau area, and places away from home.
