DANCE
   Etruscan dance was much connected to ritual performance and has been extensively depicted in wall paintings from from over 20 Etruscan tombs concentrated in Tarquinia and Chiusi dating from the late sixth century and first half of the fifth century BC. Some of the most striking scenes are in the Tomb of the Triclinium (Tomba del Triclinio) at Tarquinia, marked by spontaneity and full dress (at least in the case of the women). Other dance scenes appear on sarcophagi, cinerary urns, and stele, particularly from Chiusi. More information is found on vases and bronze mirrors.
