Trabzon, located on the Black Sea, the dance symbolises the wild waves of the Black Sea and the flashing and fluttering of the prized “hamsi” (anchovy) fish after it has been caught by fishermen- fast shoulder shimmy and trembling of the entire body. It is generally danced in a line or circle, depending on how big the group is. It is the liveliest and fastest paced of the Turkish folk dances. Usually the dancers clasp fingers and extend their arms just below or above shoulder height, standing comfortable apart from one another. The leader calls out the changes from one move to another using language that is very specifically native to this part of Turkey. The horon is also dance in the cities of Hemşin and Rize.
