DANCES - BİLECİK

Bilecik, lying in the green fertile lands of the river valley, is the eastern neighbor of Bursa. It has been the home to many civilizations such as Hittites, Phyrigians, Lycians, Persians and Macedonians and is actually considered the birthplace of the Ottoman Empire.

The dances are usually accompanied by singing and generally danced with men and women separately. Women generally dance as partners and play spoons as they are dancing. Dances move intermittently between slow and fast rhythms.
