Generally known as the ‘stick dance’, this traditional fascinating UAE folk dance is accompanied by drumming and performed by two rows of dancers facing one another. Dancers are positioned close together in rows, signifying the unity and co-operation amongst tribal people. Although it is difficult to determine the date its inception between Arab tribes it is believed that Al Ayallah Dance was performed mainly after victory in war/battle and was carried out by members of the victorious tribe. The dance nowadays is usually performed at top events, national ceremonies and weddings in the UAE.
