Sufi(صُوفِيّ) belong to different ṭuruq or "orders" (congregations formed around a master) which meet for spiritual sessions (majalis) in meeting places known as zawiyahs. Sufis believe they are practicing ihsan (perfection of worship) as revealed by Gabriel to Muhammad.

Do you know what Sema is? Sema is letting go completely of your existence and tasting eternity in non-existence. Sema is hearing affirmation sound of separating from self, and reaching God, whirling. ... Sema is struggling hard with your carnal soul, your own ego, and throwing it to the ground like a half-slain beast. Sema is opening the heart like Shams of Tabriz, and clearly seeing the Divine Light within.

Under the Stars - Konya. Turkish whirling dervishes of Mevlevi. The way I understand it is that "Dervishes" practice an esoteric form of trance dance in conjunction with their Sufi beliefs that is meant to increase their connectivity to God.
