Dance of Eagles performed by folk dance ensemble "SUVAR" in Moscow
Lezginka is a popular dance in Caucasus as well as in Northern parts of Iran, It derives its name from Lezgi people.
Lezginka can be a solo, couple or group dance. Men and women are dressed in traditional costumes; men wear a sword adorned on their side and women in long, flowing dresses. The man, imitating an eagle, dances in quick, concise steps; falling to his knees and leaping up quickly. The woman dances quietly, taking light, small steps—giving the appearance of her floating around the floor. When the dance is performed in pairs, the couples do not touch; the woman acknowledges the man, and dances discreetly about him.
