Traditional Dance

The Nicosia dance group are perfecting their routines at the cultural centre for traditional dance, in preparation for the big international dance competition in traditional dance in July, Turkey. Groups from all over the world will participate, and the class from Nicosia is the only participating team from North Cyprus. Traditional dance has strong roots in North Cypriot culture and dance groups from Cyprus perform regularly at markets, festivals and other events. The dance is structured like a play with clear actions that often depict the story of a loving couple.
