International Dance


In the Netherlands various groups focus on international dance. Mostly these groups are amateur dance groups or associations that dance for their own entertainment or as a way of physical exercise. There are also a few professional groups that specialize in International dance. There are groups that specialize in a country (Turkey) or in a style (Flamenco). Some of these specialized groups are formed by ethnic minorities who study the dance styles that come from their own cultural heritage and backgrounds. Some of the groups that perform Turkish folk dance are an example of this. A good introduction to Turkish folkdance, written in Dutch, can be found through the following link: www.werelddans-utrecht.nl/choreografie/dansvormen/turks.pdf
