A Chechen girl performing a solo dance in Lezginka-style, a national dance-style of many peoples of the Caucasus. Lezginka can be a solo, couple or group dance. In general, women dance elegantly, taking light, small steps – as if they are floating around the floor. Due to huge numbers of Caucasian immigrants, one can find Lezginka dance groups in all major cities of Central & Western Anatolia.
