Of course, music and dance not only serve as social glue, but are also very useful for our physical and mental health. Recent studies revealed that one of the keys to happiness and satisfaction is right on the dance floor.
Why dancing makes us happy?
When we dance our brain releases endorphins, neurotransmitters that create a feeling of comfort, relaxation, fun and power. Music and dance do not only activate the sensory and motor circuits of our brain, but also the pleasure centers.
Dancing is also a social activity that allows us connect with the others, share experiences and meet new people, which has a very positive effect on our mental health.

3- “FLAMENKO” at Fethiye Sanat Atölyesi with Ahmet Tek
Although flamenco reminds us kicking the ground, fast rhythms and applause, flamenco art is much more than that.
The art of rebellion and passion. As a result of the civil war in Spain in 1936, many important artists had to leave their country. This opened the way for the flamenco to cross the borders of Spain and to spread this art. According to the artists, the popularization of flamenco brought the ostentation within. Flamenco got a rather exaggerated form in theaters and touristic places. With increasing shows, albums, easy to find special costumes and shoes, Flamenco has attracted a lot of attention.
