Armenian folk dance Kochari

Kochari is an Armenian folk dance in a form of circle dance.

Each region in Armenia had its own Kochari, with its unique way of both dancing and music.

In Armenian, Kochari literally means "knee-come". Koch means "knee" and ari means "come"

Armenians have been dancing Kochari for over a thousand years. The dance is danced to a 2/4 rhythm. Dancers form a closed circle, putting their hands on each other's shoulders.

The dance is danced by both men and women and is intended to be intimidating. More modern forms of Kochari have added a "tremolo step," which involves shaking the whole body.
