Arada – The Dalhousie Syrian Student Society
The Arada group, a part of the Dalhousie Syrian Students society is excited to be performing in Halifax for Canada’s 150’s birthday! Their Arada group performs in all special occasions and wedding and is proud to showcase their culture.
Their Arada show will be a traditional Syrian dance that is done in traditional clothing. It embodies the happiness of the crowd and is usually celebrating a special occasion like weddings. As part of the dance we have a special performance called “saif w turs” which is done with two individuals acting a “fight” with swords. The dance is very popular in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine.
