In Egypt, the dervish dance is a national Tanura dance, during which the performer spins from a few minutes to several hours. Translated from Arabic, Tanura is a skirt. Several skirts are put on, and during the dance they are removed in turn.. The skirt weighs up to 18 kg. you understand That it is not an easy job to dance gracefully, with almost two buckets of water at the waist.
Tanura is almost always danced only by men. Art is inherited. Boys learn to dance Tanura from early childhood. The dancer must move perfectly, be flexible and have a good respiratory system.
A kind of dance-Tanura with tambourines. Without stopping the rotation, the dancer takes the tambourines and passes them from hand to hand, performing the rotation.
Prolonged rotation will certainly put both the dancers and the observers in a trance state, if they are ready for it.
Better to see once than hear a hundred times-enjoy Tanura-the national Egyptian dance!
