“To all people who want to learn Dabke, Have you ever wondered what may be holding you back from learning and being great at Dabke? From being confident and joining in the fun at weddings and parties? Are you ready to let loose and really enjoy yourself? Are you ready to learn Dabke that connects you with your culture, your friends and your family? Are you ready to learn Dabke that will get you attention from a potential husband or wife? Maybe the attention of a group of guys or girls? If so, then you have come to the right place… My name is Samir Hasan, and with the help of my student Youssef, I am here to help you! Here is the thing…Training dozens of people to do Dabke and personally performing in hundreds of shows has given me a rare insight into how to perform and teach Dabke moves from many countries including Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and the Gulf. I’m about to share with you some common errors along with my collection of Dabke moves I’ve called “Dabke101″ which I think are necessary for people to know if you are attending any Arab Wedding or Party. LET ME TEACH YOU HOW TO DABKE! On this very page you are reading at this very moment, I’m going to reveal to you the most efficient teaching methods for quickly learning Dabke while training in your own home at your own pace! WARNING: There are no pills or potions and this will take some hard work, so if you’re looking for a magic-fix then you’ve landed on the wrong site. But if you are looking to have great fun, learn all sorts of Dabke steps, moves and routines from someone who has spent 15+ years in the industry then you’ve come to the right place.
The Problem: Limited Time + Lack of Teachers
Let’s face it, like most other people you’ve looked around on the Internet, you’ve looked for clubs to join, you’ve looked for books and you might have even tried to YouTube it…There is nothing worth while out there. If you’re lucky enough to find a teacher you have to make time to travel to their studio or pay lots of money for each session. If you tried to form a group you deal with people not taking it seriously and missing classes. If you’re really lucky and you find a group, they’re usually too advanced and you stand there with a puzzled look on your face trying to keep up! Waste of time and STRESS! Let me ask you this… If you did find some videos on the Internet, who would you rather learn from? An average guy who knows a few moves or a teacher who has done Dabke in front of International leaders and has taught countless numbers of people?! If you said “the teacher”, you’ve nailed it! Let’s say you got really lucky and you found a skilled Dabke dancer by chance. If they don’t know how to teach you properly then you’ll both just waste your own time. They also wont have any type of planned step by step structure that slowly teaches you and improves your Dabke skills even if you’ve never danced Dabke before…ever!
The Truth: There is Nowhere to Learn Dabke
The truth is that most of the great routines you find online and see at weddings take time and are taught personally from one person to another. People don’t have tie time to learn or even teach these days especially if you’ve got a job, school or family to manage like the rest of us. Reality is your only chance to learn Dabke is a few hours every once in a while when you go to a wedding. Here is what normally happens at weddings: You get intimidated and go to the end of the line where people are doing the same old two step move. You stay there and watch in awe as the guys at the front of the line jump around in laughter and fun. You wish you were able to join in. You should be at the front of the line! Imagine how proud your family and friends would be of you! Imagine all the attention you will get from your friends and even the opposite sex! Imagine the confidence! Imagine the fun…imagine! Join me and turn your dream, your imagination into reality.
The Solution: Learning Directly From a Teacher on Your Own Time
Let me ask you another couple of questions…
- Are you the go-to coach for Dabke in your City?
- Have you trained dozens of dancers for shows all the way to dancing for the President of France?
- Have you spent all of your spare time over the last 10+ years researching, attending workshops, dancing in shows and teaching people Dabke?
And when you put that kind of dedication – that kind of passion – into developing and testing your moves, routines and teaching methods, you truly gain an incredible understanding of what is needed for people to learn Dabke and maybe more importantly, what must be left out, saving your time, energy and money.”
