Omani Dancers

The energy in this crowd of Omani dancers visiting the Sharjah Heritage area was amazing. I, together with the polish woman and her friend, was one of few women there so I had to respectfully make my way around the crowd. I got nothing but smiles from this happy crowd of dancers who swung themselves around in all kinds of ways to the tunes of the drums and bagpipes.

Jawahir, sorry for the late reply. I love Oman and the culture is beautiful. I was sooo in a mood to jump in and dance but well that would have been far from appropriate:) I took the picture in April this year when I was there during the Heritage Festival in Sharjah.
