Tortor Sirittak Hotang is a typical Simalungun dance depicting the Simalungun people's work activities as rattan farmers. This activity inspired the people of Simalungun to create a dance (Tortor) that tells how people live in search of rattan (spiritual hosting). Tortor Sirittak Hotang began to appear around the 1990s at the Rondang Bintang Party. Tortor Sirittak Hotang is not yet widely known to the younger generation of Simalungun, nor has it attracted their interest in learning more about it. This digital technology-based Simalungun dance learning media product results from research and development (R&D). Data collection through needs analysis, literacy studies, and documentation.

This research indicates that the Simalungun dance media product, validated by material and media validators, is very suitable for use as a dance learning media for FBS Unimed Dance Education Study Program students.
