Whirling Dervish

The Whirling Dervish dance comes from the Sufi monks of Turkey and is used as a type of meditation to reach enlightenment. The dancers turn continually on the spot for long periods of time which enables them to loose their visual focus and hone in on their internal awareness. Traditionally they wear white circular skirts with white shirts or jackets. As they turn, the skirts spin out to a full circle which adds to the spinning effect. The Whirling Dervish has become a performance in itself and the costumes can vary, for example the performance version from Egypt often sees the dancers wearing bright colours and geometric patterns on their costumes. Throughout a Whirling Dervish routine, our dancers follow patterns and turn in sync as well as freestyle use of the arms to maintain balance and signify various meditative gestures.
