An Albanian dance. I learnt this dance from Steve Kotansky in 2004 as Valle Nga Konispol but without the arm movements. These came from various videos on YouTube.
The music has an even 2/4 rhythm.
Open circle, arms in a W hold.
Step to the side with the right foot, then touch the left foot in front. The touch is with the flat of the foot, not just the toes or heel.
Step forward with the left foot, then touch the right foot in front. While this is happening slowly lower the arms to a V hold.
Step back on the right foot, slightly behind the left. Quickly step back with the left foot, then quickly to the side with the right. While this is happening bring the arms back up to a W hold.
Step across in front with the left, then quickly to the side with the right, and quickly cross behind with the left. During these steps lower the arms to a V hold, then bring them back up to a W hold as the sequence starts again.
