Turkish belly dance is referred to in Turkey as Oryantal Dans, or simply 'Oryantal'.
The Turkish style of bellydance is lively and playful, with a greater outward projection of energy than the more contained Egyptian style.

Karşilama, in Turkish dance, is not a rhythm but a folkdance performed in a line, where as a 9/8 (dokuz sekiz) rhythm defines the count of the rhythm and is used both karşilama and Roman havasi.
