Sultan AlNeyadi’s dancing becomes an internet sensation

Having triumphed in space, AlNeyadi has now captivated hearts with his flawless dance moves upon his return home. Amidst the vibrant celebrations that greeted him upon landing in the UAE following his historic space mission, AlNeyadi enthusiastically joined in the traditional Al Ayyala dance. Holding a stick and gracefully stepping to the beat, AlNeyadi tried to keep pace with the traditional dancers performing in his honor.

The Al Ayyala dance, a representation of Emirati values and heritage, features male performers wielding slender bamboo canes and moving to the rhythmic beats of drums. Typically performed at weddings and other festive occasions, it holds deep cultural significance.

On Monday, AlNeyadi arrived home from the United States aboard a UAE government aircraft named Al Ain, paying homage to his birthplace. He received a hero’s welcome attended by the nation’s top leaders, complete with traditional entertainment. As he disembarked from the plane, AlNeyadi was greeted by three of his children and warmly embraced by his father.

Born in Umm Ghafa, located 30 kilometers southeast of Al Ain, AlNeyadi has made history by completing the Arab world’s longest space mission.
