  2. The Oberek shown is not typical. This is part of the new Polish folk revival , where village style is promoted – I have several recordings of these bands, and i really like what they do, but they pare everything down to one simple step – rather like going to a teen dance a decade ago where most of the guys are just twisting in place while the guys with the moves are doing all kinds of stuff. The basic Oberek step is in 3/4 in a sort of QQSS. It is very hard for novices to do that in a turning dance, although I have been drilled on it by 2 Polish teachers, and done one improvisationally with a very strong Polish woman who was definitely in charge… I would agree that finding that step in a YouTube and not on stage is difficult. Beautiful dancers like that do exist “in the wild” – One of your Greek videos showed “variations” that rarely get taught, that fit the type, though.
