Transcript of Turkish folk dances
- 1. Our great leader MUSTAFA KEMAL ATATURK has explained through one of his maxims that "the basic principle of the republic of turkey is culture". We believe that folk culture is a cornerstone for our natural cohesion and unity. An overall development on various fields of economic and social life can only be achieve through education and culture. Cultural values that reflect our national pride and aesthetic values are very important. We can as a stable society find our spiritual, physical and aesthetic needs from the values of Turkish folk culture. The unusual wealth and variety of Turkish folk music and dance attracts the attention of people from all over the world. Many of the melodies and movements have very ancient origins stemming from the many different aspects of Turkish culture that form the background of modern Turkey.

- 4. BAR With their structure and formation, they are the dances performed by groups in the open. They are spread, in general, over the eastern part of Anatolia (Erzurum, Bayburt, Ar, Kars, Artvin and Erzincan provinces). The characteristic of their formation is that they are performed side-by-side, hand, shoulder and arm-in-arm. Woman and man bars are different from one another. The principal instruments of our bar dances are davul and zurna

- 6. HALAY This folk-dance, is a part of Turkish dance and is performed to a large extent in the Eastern, South- Eastern And Central Anatolia and it is one of the most striking dances. It has a rich figure structure. Simplicity is the symbol of creation and originality of the folk.

- 8. HORON In this region, corn and the sea play an important role in the local economy and social life. One of the types of fish that lives primarily in the black sea is the hamsi, a kind of anchovy. This small fish is caught in great numbers by the fishermen's nets. One of the most characteristic movements, in horon dances, is a fast shoulder shimmy and a trembling of the entire body, which imitates or suggests the movements of the hamsi as it swims in the sea or struggles in the nets for its life.

- 12. SPOON (KAIK) DANCES: In central and Southern Anatolia, there are many dances which are performed with a pair of wooden spoons in each hand. A few centers of this type of dance are Dinar, Bolu, Konya and Silifke. Many of the spoon dances from Silifke, located along the Mediterranean coast, features spoons with which the dancers click out a lively rhythm while executing quick, agile movements with their feet and arms. Frequently, the songs tell of the migratory Turkmen people. The lyrics describe their nomadic journeys, or their daily routines when settled.

- 14. ZEYBEK In contrast to the ferverish pitch common to Karadeniz dances, the zeybek dances of Western Anatolia, near the Aegean coast, are slow and graceful. The work zeybek refers to a man, who is a brother, a friend, a protector of his people. In a sense he is akin to a samurai type of figure. Performed individually, in a circle or often as a solo, the zeybek dance usually begins with the man strutting boastfully to tight strains of music.
