Al-Tanoura dance is based on a philosophical basis for the spinning from the Mawlawis who say that the world begins at a certain point and ends at the same point, so the movement should be circular. Al-Tanoura dance is performed by Dervish or Sufi men, this dance is similar to the Sufi whirling dance in Levant and Turkey. In this dance, men wear long colorful skirts or multicolored dresses which create the illusion of a human kaleidoscope while turning and twisting of the dancers. The dancer removes four different skirts during the finale of the dance. The movements of the tanoura dancer while dancing make him look like the sun rotates around itself, while the dancers around him look like the planets surrounding it. When the dancer points his left arm down with raising his right arm up, this represents the joining of earth and heaven together.
