Baqoun are a group of Palestinian Christians based in Beit Sahour, a small town close to Bethlehem. Baqoun started as a small group of young people who loved 'Dabke'. In 2007, they began presenting folklore dancing in many events both inside the country and for visiting foreign guests. Baqoun now have about 50 members in the group – all are young people aged between 13 and 21, and most of the group are students at school or university.
Baqoun present traditional Palestinian dancing in a modern way, including a small element of theatre dancing. They are entirely self-funding from their performances. They will be performing at a BSL interpreted performance in Bradford Cathedral on Sunday June 19th. 7.00 pm are looking forward and excited to be in the UK for the first time in 2016.
Tickets are £10 and include a Palestinian Supper. You can get tickets online from http://www.baqoun.org/
