In 1998, brothers Abbas and Bassel El Hassanieh formed a small dabke group, performing at family weddings and celebrations. Seeing the overwhelming response, they turned their hobby into a business and were initially known as the Mayadeen Dabke Group. The group specialized in traditional and folkloric Lebanese dance, including the famous sword and shield show, and was featured at national events, in local theatre productions and in special televised events.
By 2000, they established Zaffat.com to meet their client's growing demands and strived to offer more to their audiences. They choreographed new zaffe shows with a contemporary twist and succeeded in delighting audiences with one-of-a-kind performances that have made Zaffat.com the most well-known zaffe troupe in the country.
Every Zaffat.com event is one to remember. The company's exceptional portfolio includes hundreds of wedding parties, both in Lebanon and throughout the region, celebrity weddings, special events hosted by foreign and local dignitaries, large corporate events and prestigious ceremonies and celebrations hosted by the Lebanese government.
