Folk Dance

Different types of folk dances are influenced by lifestyles, tradition, customs, national character, religion and even geography and climate. They share some common features, such as entertaining, often being impromptu, and generally being stable in the long-term. This is because folk dances are often relatively unaffected by the outside world and change slowly. Many folk dances are still practiced in their original contexts, while also gaining favor on the professional stage. Some folk dances have also found protection as elements of intangible cultural heritage.
