A very widespread Rom dance from the Balkans.


Even 4/4 rhythm.

Facing right, point forward with your right foot - extended with the toes touching the ground. Then step onto the right where it is, so you take a step forwards. Repeat with the left foot.

Point forward with the right foot again, but this time follow it by taking three steps in place while turning to face left. Repeat this to the left, starting with the left foot and turning to face rtight.
