  1. This is interesting for several reasons:
    1. One of your Youtube videos shows the pattern in and out beginning with the left foot and going side to side before going in (L,R, L-R,L), then doing out (R), in (L), and R-L, R out. This is exactly the pattern taught by Dick Crum years ago as “Hora Boiereasca”.
    2. in some areas of the south, this pattern is called “axion”.
    3. The Hungarian dialect group called the Moldvai Csángó who live among the Romanians on the Moldavian side of the Eastern Carpathians do both the pattern shown first, and also the 1-2-3 pattern in and out. They refer to both as “Kezes” or “Kezesek”; both words mean, you guessed it, “hand”.
    4. Modern Romanian wedding music tends to sound like Banat music, all over these days. I started hearing that trend about 20 years ago. It is more zippy and wind instrument driven than the older fiddle styles, and, of course, easier to hear out of doors. Still, I lament the homogenization of regional styles.
