My name is H'ala and I'm the founder for a centre for culture and arts in Nablus-Palestine I have completed my master degree in philosophy and arts from the Freie Universität Berlin . I founded the place with the help of a group of Artists friends who shared the same passion with me in changing kids lives by teaching them art and engaging them and their families in a verity of creative events.
This is an art and culture organization that mainly aims at providing music, dancing and language activities for kids between 3 and 15 years old.
We offer dancing classes such as Ballet - hiphop and Dabka. We are also open to any kind of new dancing styles and new dancing ideas.
We also offer music classes in the flowing instruments (Piano, Guitar, Oud, and Nay) we work with all the students on a music curricular of our own and we open the registration on September of each year and we continue in giving the classes until May of each year.
This was founded in January 2017 by a group of young artists and entrepreneurs, the founders believes in the importance of art activities for kids especially in the area of Nablus.
We also recently have a new (and very small) addition to the team in the shape of a Kitten called Mimi (Meme) who generally helps with cuddles sessions and love giving in the house.
