Ataturk And Zeybek Game

ATATÜRK also appreciated the works of Selim Sırrı Tarcan, who created a salon zeybek dance by working on the creations of zeybek dances, and said the following:

"Selim Sırrı Bey gave the zeybek dances a civilized form. This work has been accepted by all of us, has evolved enough to occupy a place in our national and social life and has taken a beautiful shape. Now we can say to the Europeans, "We have a perfect dance, too, and we can play this play in our halls." Zeybek dance can and should be played with women in every social hall."
