Hafla is an Arabic word that roughly translates into party. In much of the United States however, Hafla means Middle Eastern Bellydance performances. The Delaware Drum and Dance Hafla does a mix of both: performances plus open drumming and dancing.
The Hafla has existed since Feb 2010. See the hafla history
