HAFLA: an arabic word meaning celebration.

Usually refers to a small, low-key social gathering centered around Middle Eastern Dance and food.

Hafla. (Pronounced "HAHF lah".) This basically refers to a party. A private hafla hosted by a dancer usually involves Middle Eastern music (sometimes live musicians jamming, sometimes just taped music), dancers taking turns performing for each other, and some open-floor dancing for everyone to get up and enjoy the music
