Enana Dance Theater was established in Syria in 1990 and was the first company to perform theatrical dance in Syria. Since its establishment, it has presented multiple theatrical dance works for the stage, television and film. The Enana Troupe has its own artistic direction team that researches Arabic history and culture to present Syrian and Arabic folklore through a style that matches the spirit of today. Enana blends reality and fiction in its performances as well as ancient and modern history to present traditional dance and folklore while incorporating the beauties and disciplines of classical dance. Enana’s music relies on mixing oriental melodies with western beats, keeping its local uniqueness without ruling out modernity.
