Turkish Folk Dancers 

Mersin’s lively and energetic folk dancers group from Fatih Secondary School in Mersin will present Turkish folk dance culture with colourful costumes and vibrant figures. Mersin is a large city and a busy port on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey. The children live in Barış neighbourhood which is the most ancient district of the city centre with low and poor socioeconomic and cultural life conditions. Folk dances in our city are not only the most important components of people’s entertainment culture, but also carry thousands years old cultural motifs to the future and assume an important role in preserving our heritage. Here they will perform “Kaşık Oyunu, Zeybek and Horon” as traditional folk dances of different regions in Turkey. If you join an entertainment in Mersin, you will certainly witness one of these dances and your friends will invite you to dance with them.
