Students of Izmir University of Economics (IUE) Folk Dance Club shared the same stage with zeibeks with Down syndrome. The performance of Zeibek team of Izmir Down Syndrome Association mesmerized the audience.
The IUE Folk Dance Club, coached by Trainer Halis Altıntaş, mesmerized the audience with performances from Zeybek, Diyarbakır, Burdur and Kafkas regions at the “13th Ekonomiden Kalbe, Kalpten Dansa” titled event. The club also performed a mosaic of dances including semah, semazen, halay, hurimi, Erzurum, oriental, Kırşehir, and gypsies. Dokuz Eylül University “Anadolu’dan Esintiler” Group, coached by Hayat Atak, also took the stage.
Emre Temese, President of IUE Folk Dance Club, stated that their performances reflected the values of the culture they belonged to, and he said cultural values kept the society together. “Mustafa Kemal Ataturk believed that culture is the foundation of the Turkish Republic. We are those faithful youth who will follow the steps of Ataturk, claim the Republic, and look out for our culture which is our foundation. We should not forget that folk dance is a mirror of a culture. We danced 2 Zeibek performances tonight; first performance by IUE Folk Dance Club, and second by Izmir Down Syndrome Association. Life will be better as long as they are with us”, said Temese.
