Zapin (Jawi: زافين) is a dance form that is popular in Indonesia and in Malaysia (especially in the state of Johor, Pahang and Selangor), especially in Malay-populated provinces in Sumatera (Riau Province, Jambi province, Riau Islands Province, North Sumatera, and Bangka-Belitung Islands) and West Kalimantan. It is believed to have been introduced by Arab, Muslim missionaries from the Middle East in the fourteenth century.
In the old days, only males were allowed to perform; nowadays, female dancers are included. It used to be performed exclusively for religious ceremonies but through the years it has become a form of traditional entertainment, hence the participation of female dancers is allowed.
There are numerous types of zapin, and each type varies by the movement and style of dance:
- Zapin Melayu Johor
- Zapin Pulau
- Zapin Tenglu
- Zapin Tenglu 2
- Zapin Lenga
- Zapin Pekajang
- Zapin Arab
- Zapin Jambi (Jambi Province)
- Zapin Singapura
- Zapin Sindang (Sarawak)
- Zapin Sekaki (North Sumatera)
- Zapin Pesisir (Riau Islands Province)
- Zapin Tembung (West Kalimantan)
