This is a must see. I went with three male family members and we all thoroughly enjoyed this show. It was approx an hour long which is a great length of time.. not too long and it means each dance is a good length too....More
If you are familiar with Sufism and spiritual world, you’d enjoy the show. Highly recommend for visitors to read a bit more what “Dervish” is and the “dance” rituals.
I liked the location and professionalism of the staff.
This is the worst thing I have seen in 50 yrs. Everyone was bored to death and probably would have ran away had they not told upfront not to move during the performance. Same spinning for 45 min with no other actions other than bowing....More
I have seen the Rhythm of the Dance (Hodja Pash) every time I am in Istanbul, at least 2 times every year and find in a great show. It represents different areas of Turkish folk dance and Ottoman court culture. I am the director of...More
We were told to be at the show by 8pm for 8.30 start and we got there 5 minutes early and were told quite abruptly "you have to wait" so they let us upstairs to wait for the show to start for 30 minutes and...More
Upon recommendation of our friends we bought tickets for the Rhythm of the dance. The HodjaPasha cultural center is established in an old hamam. Everything is very well organized and very professional. The show area is circular. There are 12 shows and takes 70 minutes....More
I had a great time seeing this performance with my family. It was various traditional Turkish dances with a bit of glitter, glammer and pizzazz. Mixed with soloists and ensemble numbers. I thoroughly enjoyed it, in particular the male solo dancer who belly danced and...More
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

There are 2 places that I know, but one of them doesn't have ceremonies as often as Hodjapasha and their location, although it's the historic train station in Sirkeci, is not as nice as the Sirceki old Turkish Bath (Hodjapasha).
There are many alternatives. You can book directly on their website, you can purchase the Istanbul Tourist Pass and make a reservation (it's included for free), you can book it thru any of the many agencies which advertise it in the city, or you can go there by yourself and purchase the tickets, but you might risk not finding a seat if you get too late.
There is also a Turkish dance show in Hodjapasha after the ceremony (paid separately) which I attended a few months ago and I highly recommend it. It's one of the best ones I've attended in all Turkey.
