Kotsari is a dance from the city of Kars in the eastern parts of Pontus. Unlike most Pontian dances, this dance is done with hands on the shoulders.  The name of the dance is derived from the term for ankle, “Kots”, and this is due to the constant lifting of the ankle. It was originally danced in a closed circle, but today is usually danced in an open circle or in a straight line.
