L is for Folk Dances that Start with “L”


I dance with Phoenix International Folk Dancers every Tuesday night. Here are a bunch of dances we do that start with the letter “L.”

From French-speaking Canada, La Bastringue:

From Romania, La Bordeiul cel din Vale:

From Greece, Lerikos:

From Russia, Lugovon’ka:

From the United States, Louisiana Saturday Night:

From Wales, Lazy Robin (I actually know it as Idle Robin, but idle doesn’t start with “L”):

From Israel, Od Lo Ahavti Dai (on some lists of dances, it appears as Lo Ahavti Dai, so I’m counting it as an “L” dance):

Last Tuesday night, these sweet ladies from Phoenix International Folk Dancers performed one of my favorite dances, Little Miss Greece, so that I could post it here for your viewing pleasure.
