Dance

Kolo (dance)

Kolo (Serbian Cyrillic: Коло) is a collective folk dance, where a group of
people (usually several dozen, at the very least three) hold each other
by the hands or around the waist dancing, ideally in a circle, hence the
name. There is almost no movement above the waist.

The dance is accompanied by instrumental two-beat music with the
same name, made most often with an accordion, but also with other
instruments: frula (traditional kind of a recorder), tamburica, or
harmonica.

This dance is usually very simple to learn, but experienced dancers
dance kolo with great virtuosity due to different ornamentic elements
they add, such as syncopated steps etc.
