Istanbul Dance Academy Art Club

Istanbul Dance Academy Art Club

Our Folk Dance group “İDA SANAT” (İstanbul Dance Academy Art Club), has been established in 2008. We are continuing our work of approaching folk dance from a different angle.

We continue to perform Turkish Folk Dance with original Turkish folk dance costumes, without modifying the original dance except for music and some stage arrangements. With more people joining our group, our member count continues to rise. Our group performs dances from all around Turkey.

Our group owns all the costumes needed to perform every dance, along with the music used.

Our group participates in folk dance competitions and has acquired various good ratings in said competitions. The group also has gotten invitations to various festivals worldwide and performed in said festivals.

We continue our operations with 150 members in Istanbul-Şişli.
