Belly Dancing

Belly dance is also traditionally popular as ‘Raqs Sharqi’. This dance form is deeply rooted in the traditional Arabian culture. It is quite ancient and can be traced back to the ancient civilisations of the Middle East, North Africa, and the Mediterranean. It has been in practice since times immemorial as a form of entertainment and ritual in the Arabian provinces. However, this dance form evolved with time, involving various elements from different cultures. 

Tanoura Dance 

Another traditional dance form of Arabian culture is the Tanoura dance. This dance is symbolic and represents the rotation of the earth around the sun. Its music also has Arabic characteristics and is related to the tunes of Eastern countries. Moreover, drums, flutes, and other instruments accompany the traditional music of the Tanoura dance.

Fire Show

See a well trained stuntman perform stunts with real fire in the desert. You might end up having multiple moments of astonishment as the performer blows out fire from their mouth.  Also, you’ll feel amazed at how they can play with fire as if they are playing with a harmless toy. 

Khaleeji Dance

Khaleeji word itself means gulf, signifying that it is the traditional dance of the Persian Gulf countries. However, the existing dance form is a fusion of traditional and contemporary dance. It is majorly performed by women at weddings and other ceremonies. 

Dabke Dance

It is a Levantine folk dance performed in circles and lines on joyous occasions in the countries of Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, etc. Some of the desert safari camps also offer this dance performance. Apart from the Dabke dance, acoustic live music performances are also there at the desert safari camp. 

Henna Tattoo
