Image <P><BR>Now, here is a little known fact about Turkish dance:<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>... the Mevlevi Ensemble, named for the religious order Rumi founded, celebrates his spirit with an evening of music, dance and recitation next week at the Marin Center, one stop on a coast-to-coast tour. The dancing is the best-known but little understood manifestation of the Mevlevi order, whose name is derived from Rumi's honorific, Mevlana, meaning master, friend, protector.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><B><A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/10/13/NB99072.DTL" TARGET=_blank>The SF Chronicle article</B></A>

Something to catch in Houston:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>MECA Presents Free Turkish Folk Dance Performance</B><P>HOUSTON--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--May 18, 2001--MECA's Sunday Concert Series presents a free performance by the Turkish Folk Dance Group (TFDG) of the American Turkish Association of Houston. The dancers, most of whom are originally from Turkey, will present lively traditional Turkish dances in richly colored, authentic costumes. The dances are from several of Turkey's diverse regions and usually tell stories about the people they represent. There are dances about harvests, fishermen, and even one about wood craftsmen that whimsically incorporates wooden spoons.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/010518/0103.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
