Horon (Pontic: χορόν, romanized: khorón) is a traditional folk dance from Pontus or Eastern Black Sea Region in Turkey.
The term horon derives from Greek choros (Greek: χορός, romanized: khorós), which means "dance." The earliest instance of its usage in a Turkic language is in Codex Cumanicus from 1303.
In Ordu and Giresun, the term horan is used instead of horon.
