One of the most popular dances in Bulgaria today is Chichovo horo (CHEE-choh-voh) – chicho means ‘uncle’. It’s said to be from the North Bulgaria cultural region, which borders Romania. A Romanian influence is apparent, what with the grapevines and ‘stamps’. I’m told the ‘stamps’ aren’t necessarily hard, more like touches. Chichovo horo is yet another variation on the Taproot Dance. Take away side-behinds 1, 3, & 5, and you have __ ,__, R step, L cross, __, __, R step, touch L, __, __, L step, touch R.
