Turkish folk dances are classified from different aspects. These classifications have different characteristics. Some of them handle the subject from different aspects as well as some of them are movement-based. However, the truth is a movement-based classification. Because, the thing classified is movement and performance. Some of the researchers have not dealt with the Turkish folk dances in terms of type concept; there have been even ones who argue that they are not included in type concept. However, when the word “type” is analyzed, the fact that folk dances can be dealt with type concept emerges. In addition to this, there are even sub-types of these types. When the Turkish folk dances are classified, there have also been the ones who categorized according to the tools used in hands. However, the tools used in hands do not have an effect on the movement of the performance or do not make contribution to the movement of the performance. They are only used for he purposes of rhythm or decoration. For this reason, these tools’ being included in type scope must not be in question.
