  1. The interesting thing about the first “Pro-Art” video is that the dances were all from Moldova. The last one, a couple dance they called BRAŞOVEANCA on the YouTube title, uses the tune for the Polish Krakowiak, a very popular tune that spread all over Eastern Europe in the 19th century, often for dances that bore no resemblance to the Krakowiak. The dance in the YouTube video is done by the Moldvai Csango and is taught at many Hungarian camps, usually under the name “hora”, even though it is a couple dance done in Varsouvienne position (and where do we get that term? – from the French word for Warsaw – things get around…)
