Committee for Justice in Palestine - Taste of OSU 2014

The Ohio State University student organization - Committee for Justice in Palestine performs a Palestinian folk dance called dabke, which means stamping of the feet. This line dance is performed at Arab weddings, ceremonies, and celebrations. Dabke allows the Arabs to showcase their history, struggle and aspirations. It is of particular importance for the Palestinian people, which, in the absence of true sovereignty, use folk culture to reaffirm their identity.
