A female Tuatha'an dancing the tiganza.

"Outstretched arms spread her shawl behind her; her hips undulated as her bare feet shuffled to the beat of the drums....She turned in small circles, smiling over her shoulder at him."
   —The Eye of the World, Chapter 27

The tiganza is a sensual dance performed by Tuatha'an women. The dance involves shuffling steps to the slow beat of drums, small circular turns, and a slow rotation of the hips that is emphasized by the sway of a fringed shawl. It is usually done barefoot to the light of the campfire.[1]

Perrin describes the tiganza as the Tinker women's swaying, hip-rolling dance that sets the heart pounding.[2]
