Thread Name: Is this genuine folk dancing?
Subject: RE: Is this genuine folk dancing?
The dance display teams that come here (UK) from E Europe put on a highly choreographed display. As, to an extent, do all display teams. The Pan's people contains stepping (some of it ballet, some perhaps could be seen in folk), and a few figures. In the same way a Clog team will add shape to their stepping. Even a team that puts together a display of the same dances that you might dance for the fun of it will include choreography to link between the formations of various dances.
