  1. All the Vlach Serb dances were Vlainja, by structure. They either did the Vlainja that used to be done faster (7 steps to R, 2 in place, 3 steps to the left), or they did the same foot pattern , but with all the steps to the right, and slow/moderate. One folklorist told me that this was because women like to wear high heels and that led to slower tempos and a dance that almost “meanders to the right. It is, though, still R,L,R,L,R,L, R, touch,L, touch, R, touch, L, R, L, touch.
