Course Description

Folk dance are dances that are developed by people that reflect the life of the people of a certain country or region. Not all ethnic dances are folk dances. For example, ritual dances or dances of ritual origin are not considered to be folk dances. Ritual dances are usually called "Religious dances" because of their purpose.

Types

They share some or all of the following attributes:

  • Dances are usually held at folk dance gatherings or social functions by people with little or no professional training, often to traditional music.
  • Dances not generally designed for public performance or the stage, though they may later be arranged and set for stage performances
  • Execution dominated by an inherited tradition from various international cultures rather than innovation (though folk traditions change over time).
  • New dancers often learn informally by observing others or receiving help from others.
  • There are a number of modern dances, such as hip hop dance, that evolve spontaneously, but the term "folk dance" is generally not applied to them, and the terms "street dance" or "vernacular dance" are used instead. The term "folk dance" is reserved for dances which are to a significant degree bound by tradition and originated in the times when the distinction existed between the dances of "common folk" and the dances of the modern ballroom dances originated from folk ones.
