It is inevitable that in
the important moments of ones life one will not have the opportunity to meet
folk dances. There is no wedding, christening or party without a brau, a hora
or an ardeleana.
Unfortunately in many of our villages we are witnessing a deterioration of the folklore, we are witnessing almost its disappearance and its replacement with other genders, which are completely different from our traditional folklore.
This made me start this
course and try to bring more people to its "origins". I am glad that
many young people (and not only) answered to our call and we believe that we
managed to complish beautiful things. Thus, during the events, they succesfully
manage to dance what should be danced and not only “two steps right, two
The material that is presented during course lessons (in the firs part) includes the traditional dances from Banat, performed at all parties: hora, braul, ardeleana, de doi and sorocul.
Furthermore, those eager-to-dances will discover the entire richness of Romanian folklore from Rustemul of Oltenia to Cadaneasca from Dobrogea, from Taraneasca of Moldova to Brîul din Muntenia, from Polca of Bihor to Jiana of Fagaras and from Purtata of Câmpia Transilvana to Învârtita of Maramures.
By teaching together, in
different compartments, Marius and Maria offer a better possibility of instructing
all the participants and, accordingly, couple dances can be better understood.
Each of their programs contains a variety of dances from almost all folk regions
of the country.
