What is a Hafla?
Let’s start by taking a look at the definition
“Hafla” pronounced from the Arabic “Khafla” (soft “a” in the word) is a “get-together,” party,ceremony for a family gathering,clan,religious ceremony which may have an intimate number of friends or many people invited. For instance an Arab Muslim man can do the Commandment of circumcision for his son in a small group, or honour it with a “hafla” (Khaflah). (Urban Dictionary)
In the Belly Dance World Haflas are get together where the Belly Dance Community come as one. Is a celebration to keep the community Active and showing your support. In Haflas you can find Belly Dance Performances from Local belly dancers, contests,raffles, or Auctions. If you are starting as a Belly Dancer is a great place to network. Find out about your Local Belly Dance Community.
Hafla aside from Entertainment
