We came to the Turkish Dance Night with vague expectations - only that it would be "regional dances" from all over Turkey. What a treat! The hall itself is a bit of old Turkey - wonderful, intimate, domed performance hall that is, as I recall...More

Booked online prior to our trip. We were able to enjoy front row seats (although any seat in the three row theatre would be good). A spectacular show of colour, athleticism, and music. Definitely great for all ages.
