Countries Visiting

Israel

Israeli dance is often considered a form of folk dancing, accompanied by music from Israel. They originally came about by serving as a creation of a new culture in an ancient world, fusing together other forms of dance along with traditional steps. Israeli folk dance even includes balletic moves in some forms. The Horah is a circle dance that is performed in a lot of Jewish-driven nations. It also derives from the eastern European country of Romania, and is often regarded as the popular ringleader of all Jewish dances. You will sometimes see Horah at Jewish weddings, bar mitzvahs, and other religious rituals and get-togethers.

Romania

Romania’s popular folk dance, the Alunelul, has developed over hundreds of years from ancient chain dancing in isolated villages into an internationally respected folk dance. The Alunelul probably originates from the ancient chain dances once associated with religious rituals or celebrations. Because of Romania’s geographical location, the development of chain dances continued throughout the Middle Ages, uninterrupted by the newer dance traditions developing west of the Carpathian Mountains. This continued past the Reformation, where social dancing became limited if not non-existent in many dominant Protestant countries, while the chain dances—and the Alunelul by extension—continued to spread and develop.

Italy

Southern Italy serves as the birthplace for the folk dance known as the “Tarantella” originating as far back as the 16th and 17th centuries yet more prevalent during the Middle Ages/Renaissance.  Primarily this dance form started off as a solo dance to cure disease yet transitioned into a dance of courtship years later.  A cultural experience of the Tarantella comes from the occurrence of a spider bite from the well-known Tarantula. It is believed that once bitten, the venom caused one to fall into a trance, only curable through a frenzy of dance and music.  The non-stop, fast paced dancing would help the victim sweat out the poison.

Ireland

Irish dancing is a very important part of the heritage and culture of Ireland; just like the Irish language, native sports like Gaelic Football or Hurling, and traditional Irish music. .  The Seige of Ennis is a popular Irish dance. Ennis is a town in County Clare on the west side of Ireland is. It is a dance that represents the battle when Ennis was sieged.  The dance is known as a progressive dance because the dancers move forward to meet a new line of dancers on each repetition of the dance sequence.
