Floricică, 1stG – Romania, N.W. Bulgaria

By my definition, 1st Generation dances are those considered an important part of an area’s heritage. Even though they are no longer Living (i.e. danced regularly at social events by the average villager), local performing groups consider it worthwhile to demonstrate them in a simple manner as they would be danced in the village “for the record”, not gussied up for spectacle.

There are many other dances named Floricică, some of which have qualifiers like Floricică de la Munte. Usually the qualifiers indicate a 2nd Generation dance.

Floricică from 6.:50 – 7:29. The simplicity of a village dance, in a suite of other simple village dances.

Yves Moreau taught a village Floricică from the Vlach community of NW Bulgaria. To purchase a video of Yves demonstrating this dance, click: http://www.bourque-moreau.com/bali.html
