GBDAC2017 Kountdown - Week 9: Hassan Harfouche

GBDAC2017 | Hassan Harfouche
Wow!  In less than 9 weeks you will have the opportunity to see Hassan Harfouche live every night throughout our 21st annual "Give Belly Dance A Chance" weekend!

For those of you who are not familiar with L'Emir Hassan Harfouche, he has been a professional dabke dancer as well as a choreographer for over forty years.

His early training was with the traditional choreographers, Mirwan and Wadia Gerrar. He then began his long association with Kegam, who is the founder of stylized dabke.     

Well known throughout the world, Hassan has performed in theaters in New York, Canne, London, Germany, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Ohio, San Francisco, Minnesota, and throughout the middle east including the Phoenician's Citadel of Byblos and his home town of Baalbek, Lebanon, known for its annual international dance festival.    

Hassan has danced in several feature films including "King of the Gypsies" and "Protocol" and has choreographed and performed for numerous television shows. Hassan continued to choreograph, teach, and perform Dabke after moving to the United States while a student at U.S.C.

For the past twenty five years, Hassan has been a featured teacher - teaching a master dabke class - at the Mendocino Music and Dance Camp in Northern California.
