We really enjoyed the Whirling Dervishes show; as much for the education it gave us into its origin and spiritual meaning as for the dance itself. The ceremony is only for an hour and is performed in a small circular theatre where you are only a couple of arm lengths from the performers.
Try and ask for a front row seat, because the seats in the two rows behind are not elevated very much, meaning that for a short bodied person sight could be a little restricted. Any ladies in the front row should plan to wear something that covers their legs or they will be asked to make use of a light blanket that will be provided.
The theatre is not in the best part of town, but if you study a map it is within a 15 minute walk of the Blue Mosque. There are signs posted advising against using the taxis that wait after the performance.
