[Ameleb Club Dancers Dancing with Volunteers from Audience]

Description:

Photograph of the Lebanese-American Ameleb Club dancers from San Antonio, dancing with volunteers from the audience at the Texas Folklife Festival. The dancers and volunteers form a circle as they hold hands on the brown shiny dance floor which is sectioned off by lines into small rectangles. The photograph is taken from the corner of the dance floor, looking across to the other side. In the foreground is a group of about six people in a circle, but more are visible dancing in the background. Spectators line the edge of the dance floor. A mesh net hangs over the dance floor to provide some shade.
