Traditional Dancing

Korean traditional dance can mainly be divided into the following categories: court dancing, folk dancing, dancing with masks, and ritual dancing. Just one experience of watching the light and graceful movements of Korean traditional dance will have you captivated. Some of the most popular routines include the fan dance, where female dancers wear colorful hanbok and use colorful fans to create shapes, and "talchum", a drama-type dance where dancers wear masks and create a story.
Seoul has locations such as "Yejiwon", as listed below, where you can not only observe these different dances, but also learn it for yourself!  The National Theater of Korea is also a great way to immerse yourself in Korean traditional arts performances.
