Traditional Tajikistani dance is an umbrella term for the various traditional and folkloric dances originating from Tajikistan. The traditional dances performed in Tajikistani culture reflect the mood of the accompanying song. Consequently, there are no specific movements, dress, or techniques that characterize the dances. Pantomime dances are common, and mimic animals and birds. "Rakskhoi marosimi" is a ceremonial dance performed for somebody who is near death. Other dance styles include "pamir," "bukhara," "hisara," "raks bo dutor" and "aspakbozi."
