Enter a trance through ‘Tanoura’ dancing

‘Tanoura’ means skirt in English. Tanoura dancing is an Egyptian dance form with a purpose. It was witnessed as well as applauded for the entertainment it provided at the DSF shopping malls this year. But if you have missed out on it, you now have no reason to fret… as this beautiful art form is now part of the overnight desert safari camps in Dubai by One World.

After an active day over the desert sand dunes you will always need some sort of relaxation on your Dubai desert safari. For this reason the evening desert camp is ideal. But if you are looking for full-fledged entertainment, you need to go in for the overnight desert camp.

The overnight desert safari is not only famous for ‘charcoal grilled’ cuisine, but it is also known for its dancing entertainment. Belly dancing is widely witnessed by many tourists who have come and gone on a Dubai tour but the tanoura dance isn’t displayed very often. This dance is unique because of the prop that is used (i.e. the colourful skirt). But people like to witness it in order to experience the trance brought about by the dervish whirls of the main dancer that usually lasts for 40 minutes. This feature sets it apart from the other dances.

Apart from the dancers a singer is also involved. Different traditional instruments like the folk fiddle, flute, drums, cymbals, etc. help create the divine beat of the Tanoura.
