    The UAE Folk Dance


    This is one of the most popular dance and music in UAE. It is very common to see this kind of dance form in every festivals and cultural events across UAE. It is an expression of joy and happiness. Most of the dances are male-oriented dance. A large group of men performed using their sticks, swords or rifles, re-enact the victory of the battle. There's also a scene where the young Emirati girls swing their long black hair following the rhythm. It is a very unique experience for me to see this dances. I took these photos and video in February 28th, 2014 at the Qasr Al Hosn Festival in Abu Dhabi.
