Answer: Sabar is a traditional West African dance from Senegal, West Africa, that is performed to the beats of the Sabar drum. Sabar dancing incorporates feelings of feminine sensuality and flirtatiousness. It is a dance of expression that uses every part of the body, from the arms and legs to the eyes.
