Sardana

The sardana is a type of circular dance typical of Catalunya. The dance was originally from the Empordà region, but started gaining popularity throughout Catalunya during the 20th century. When you walk through Barcelona on any holiday, be it religious or not, you'll almost automatically come across some groups of people dancing. And several statues across town celebrate it. This iron one is on the Fundacio Fran Daurel, in the Poble Espanyol, by Manuel Alvarez.

Just a few basic shapes but they become a lively dancing group. Beautiful.

And some people, like me, may have associated only the flamenco with Spanish dances.

I don't like so much the dance, but I admire the meaning it has and the history of this piece of folklore.
