Afghanistan for Kids — the Attan

The ATTAN is a dance that originated in the Pashtun areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The dance is done in a circle; dancers spin and often swirl scarves in the air. Attan songs are long and sometimes dancing continue hours and hours in the night. Dancers compete for endurance and he last dancer standing wins . . . but, then again, don’t all the dancers win?
