About This Activity

Bridging two continents, Europe and Asia, Turkey has been the home to civilizations with settled villages and city life for nine thousand years. Its rich cultural heritage is dramatized by folk dancing. Folk dances have different characteristics based on region and location and are generally engaged in during weddings, gatherings, festivals, when sending sons off to military service, and during religious and national holidays. Dances demonstrate the different social roles of men and women. Some of the dances are reenactments of daily activities, while others tell stories. There are many different types of folk dances performed in various ways in Turkey, and these reflect the cultural structure of each region. Your child will have the opportunity to learn these culture and use his/her kinesthetic abilities with having fun in this club!
