    Folk Dance From Your Area

    I have always loved folk dancing, and I have learned how to do some Norwegian folk dances that I have performed in front of a large group. The idea of this thread is to post various videos of folk dances from your region, and Country. Since Canada is multi cultural, we do not have our own folk dances, but here are some of the ones I have done.

    Seksmansril




    I have not done this dance but it is an extremely popular Norwegian dance:

    Halling
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    An excellent thread idea. I didn't learn to folk dance much as a kid, hope to get that done some time soon enough, finances and time-keepinggoing smooth, that is.

    Anyway, here's some I could find for now, I've included South Tyrol as well.

    Lüsener Deutscher


    Boarische


    Unterinntaler Schustertanz


    Vinschger Schustertanz


    And the best for last: Dancing during Mullerlaufen in Thaur.
    Unsinniger Donnerstag Thaur


    More to come a different time.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Got a look to the previous posts and there are some noticeable analogies between German/Norwegian/Dutch dances !

    Here are some traditional Alsatian dances, I'm sure you don't want to miss the dresses and the melodies

    Danse du CHIBRELI - d'r Rutch Hinn d'r Rutch heer


    Alsatian version of the Mazurka, filmed in Kolmer :

    Danse Alsacienne : la Mazurka


    Virée alsacienne : danse folklorique


    This one's not really a dance but it's quite funny "Dance of the hats" :

    Ronde des chapeaux


    Looking at those videos actually makes me want to learn to do it, but I know I'm not made for this, it's not "rough" enough and not really natural, so I'll stick to headbanging for now

    I'm very interested in the folk dances of Northern Europe and Scandinavia, yet my state's folk dance of choice is the Square Dance. I've never done the dance, as I've never had any idea we had a state folk dance.
