Who are The Mayyas?

The Mayyas is a dance group made up of 36 Lebanese women of all different ages. The name of the group comes from an Arabic word that means a lioness’s proud walk. The group wants to spread the idea that women should have more power.

In Lebanon, it was hard for the women in the group to get good jobs. America’s Got Talent gave them the bigger stage they needed.

“We can’t believe what’s happening,” a member of the group told Arab News after celebrating the win on stage. “We put in a lot of hard work to get to this point. We quit our jobs, schools, and universities to train every day so we could be here and win for our name and for Lebanon. We did what we set out to do.”
