Since the construction of the Gloria Aspendos Arena in 2008, Fire of Anatolia now have residency here and perform throughout the summer evenings in this purpose built amphitheatre.  It is located just 30 kilometres from Side, allowing guests in the area to make an easy journey to visit and see on e of the famous performances.  The theatre boasts tiered seating and has a number of bars and restaurants inside for the convenience of guests.

The show itself is a feast for the eyes and you will be enchanted by the costumes, lights and extremely energetic dance moves.  Each dance represents a tale in the history or culture of Turkey and tells a story that you watch unfold much like a ballet.  In fact the dancers are often ballet trained and there is a rigorous selection process that they must go through to become a member of this esteemed group.

You will witness gravity defying leaps and moves so fast you may not even be able to catch them all.  Did you know the Fire of Anatolia group has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, by dancing over 240 steps per minute?  There are two shows available each week and they are both pretty spectacular.  If you don’t have time to see both you certainly shouldn’t miss the chance to see them at least once on your holiday!
