    Default ? 's on Turkish Roman dance

    Ahmet Ogren from Istanbul, Turkey is going to do an article with us on Turkish Roman dance. This is a great opportunity to learn more about this dance form! If you have any kind of questions about the Turkish Roman dance, post them here, and I will do my best to work them in!

    It would be nice if he can explain some of the meanings of gestures they make in this dance style. I went once to a workshop where they explained it, but I have completely forgotten by now.

    Hi Amulya,I was at a workshop with Aremis and she said many of the gestures do not have a specific meaning. it would be interseing to hear Ahmet Ogren's take on things.

    Ask him what are some of his favorite music?

    The workshop I went to was from Cathryn Ruillet from Italy. I find it facinating when there are contradicting opinions. I hope he can explain more
