    Default Folk Dances of Turkey


    Hora
    Hora, also known as horo and oro, is a type of circle dance originating in the Balkans but also found in other countries.
    Hora is mainly played in Eastern Thrace.

    Zeybek
    The zeybek is a form of folk dance peculiar to Western, Central and southern Anatolia in Turkey. It is named after the Zeybeks.

    Zeybek melodies can be divided according to their tempo: ağır (slow) and kıvrak (fast). The ağır zeybek have rhythmic patterns of 9/2 or 9/4, which begin with an introduction called gezinleme in free style where the dancers wander freely before starting to dance in time with the rhythm. There is, however, no gezinleme introduction in female zeybek dances. Kıvrak zeybek have rhythmic patterns of 9/8 or 9/16.

    Bar
    Bar is a form of folk dance of Eastern Turkey. The word bar is from the Armenian word "Պար" (bar) which means dance. With their structure and formation, they are the dances performed by groups in the open. They are spread, in general, all over the region of Eastern Anatolia, especially in Erzurum, Artvin, Bayburt, Ağrı, Kars, and Erzincan provinces.



    Horon

    Horon (Greek) or khoron (Turkish: horon), which is related to Modern Greek χορός (chorós), refers to a group of a circle folk dances from the Black Sea region of Turkey. It retains aspects of Greek dance styles.

    Halay

    Halay or Yalli or Dilan (Azerbaijani: Yallı; Armenian: Շուրջպար šurǰpar; Syriac: ܚܓܐ Ḥeggāʾ, Greek: Χαλάϊ Chaláï; Kurdish: Govend or Dîlan, Turkish: Halay, Sakha: Ohuokhai, Persian: هالای‎ "Hālāy") is a popular dance in the Middle East.

    One source suggests a possible connection of the Turkish halay to alay: a crowd at a parade, or a regiment. The word alay is traced back through Greek ultimately to the Latin ala meaning a wing or a certain military formation with cavalry at the wings.

    Karşılama

    Karşılama (From Turkish: karşılama, in Greek: καρσιλαμάς), is a folk dance spread all over Northwest Turkey and carried to Greece by Greek immigrants. The term "karşılama" means "encounter, welcoming, greeting". The dance is popular on Northwestern areas of Turkey, especially on wedding parties and festivals.

    In Greece and Cyprus there is a similar dance named, Antikrystos. Antikrystos, translates also, as "anti-face", i.e., face-to-face.

    Karsilamas is a couple dance that is still danced in what was the Ottoman Empire, from Persia to Serbia, and in the Macedonia and Thrace regions of Northern Greece.

    Lezginka

    Lezginka or Lezghinka (Azerbaijani: qaytağı, Chechen: хелхар, Circassian: Лъапэрисэ, Шышэн, Къэжэхь, Georgian: ლეკური, Ingush: халхар, Karachay-Balkar: стеме, Lezgian: Лезги кьуьл, Ossetian: тымбыл кафт, зилгæ кафт, Russian: лезгинка, Turkish: Lezginka) is a national dance of the many peoples in the Caucasus Mountains. Lezghins, Azeris, Chechens, Ossetians, Circassians, Karachays, Balkars, Abkhazians, Kabardins, Ingush, Ingilos, Mountain Jews, Georgians, the Russian Kuban and Terek Cossacks and the various ethnicities of Dagestan such as the Avars, Dargwa and Kumyks have their own versions. A dance of the Lezgian people of Daghestan and Azerbaijan.

    Figures of the dance may, vary from region to region but main theme is two people face each other, and music rhythmically controls their next moves. Traditionally people dance without any figure on their minds, just figures they have seen from their elders.

    Dances in the Lezginka style has nothing to do with the Lesser Caucasus
    The territory that is painted in green is the Lesser Caucasus
    There historically lived South-Western Georgian tribes. Their traditional dances is something like Horon and not Lezginka
    Don't steal Caucasian culture

    In Turkey live a lot of Caucasians
    But it does not mean their dances are dances of Turkey
    Azerbaijanian or Circassian dances are dances of the Caucasus and not of Turkey though Circassians live in Turkey
    Terekemes have always lived in the Lesser Caucasus
    Lezginka can not be their dance

    Dances from the seven geographical regions of Turkey:





    Zeybek rules in my opinion, but Erzurum başbarı is also very cool.

    Feracenin hakiki ve otantik yorumu yalnizca bu olmali. Kiyafet orijinal, tavir gercek Zeybek tavri, yorum gercek Kütahya yorumu.

    Antikrystos translated to antichrist, not anti-face. Never heard of it either, you satan worshippers.

    The territory that is painted in green is also populated mostly by Ahıska, Terekeme & Azerbaijani Turks. Lezginka in that region is performed by them.
