House of Culture, Varela, Buenos Aires Province

Posted on YouTube: August 9, 2016

The Undersecretary of Culture and Education showed up at this Arab Dance workshop in the House of Culture. It was in Varela, a suburb of Buenos Aires. This was a municipal workshop which offered free courses: in this case, Arabic Dance.

Notice the young girls in the background.

This is considered an art form in Latin America, suitable even for young ladies.

It could not be any more mainstream.

History and Faiza Al Manzur Dancing at Lebanese Club, Uruguay

Posted on YouTube: Aug 5, 2016

At Punta Pocitos (a barrio in Montevideo), Uruguay.

The dancer is: Faiza Al Manzur

Her website is: www.faizaalmanzur.com

Her Facebook Link: (Click Here)

I really recommend seeing her website and facebook page.

Miss Al Manzur can usually be found at the Lebanese Club of Uruguay.

The Lebanese Club has a long history in Uruguay. It goes back to 1905, when Uruguay set out to outlaw Asian immigration, which would have prohibited Arab immigration. By that time, yes, even that early, the Lebanese and Syrian community in Uruguay was large enough to intervene and get an exemption for Syrians and Lebanese.

This is their history page (In Spanish). Be aware, however, it is connected with the Lebanese Embassy in Uruguay.

The point is: Even as early as 1905, there was a powerful Arab community in Uruguay.
