    1st clip is Simhhat Beyt haSho'evah celebrations in Rehovot; second clip is a private celebration in Qiryat Sefer
    These clips are interesting but no so much for the music as it sounds nice as usual. But the dancing is rather unusual for Yemenite Jews, no? This kind of dancing is common in the northern parts of the Middle East and the Balkans, I don't think I've seen people in Yemen dance like this, they must have picked this kind of dancing from other Jews in Israel.

    You are correct but this is a fuller explanation: the Jewish Yemenite unique musical and dance culture had and has such off the charts vitality( IMHO derived from it's preservation of the purest Hebrew as well as 2nd Temple Greek-influenced liturgy they brought from Israel). This vitality led to the Yemenite dance evolving vigorously in Israel leading to the more athletic style seen today. These styles are the norm for the younger generations, and the dance moves spread among young guys in Yeshiva and now have spread to non-Yemenite Yeshiva guys and new moves are being choreographed and grafted onto the traditional styles, which also coexist.

    Interesting stuff in this thread, I would like to share the two main traditional dances in Yemen.
    1) Bura (برع) is considered the main dance in the north and middle regions of Yemen. A lot of variations exists.

    2) Sharh (شرح) is the main dance in south of Yemen, also multiple variations exists in different places.

    I find the dance of the Yemeni Arabs beautiful. It is certainly recognizably distinct from the Jewish styles.Here are some of the traditional Jewish Yemenite dancing, including the unique dances of the Hhabbani Jews(guys with the long hair), who were the only Jews who went armed in Yemen.



    More Hhabbani jewish dancing in footage taken right after arrival in Israel:
