Historical Choice of 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.
