Folk dances are dances developed by groups of people that reflect the traditional life of the people of a culture, country or  region. Folk Dances have a social function for the people of the same culture to connect with their tradition and also an intercultural social funcion when people who are from differents cultures, meet in workshops and Festivals.


Folk dances have a strong link with the history and tradition of each people. Some Folk dances are called ethnic dance or traditional dance or ceremonial dances. The terms "ethnic" and "traditional" are used when it is required to emphasize the cultural roots of the dance. In this sense, nearly all folk dances are ethnic ones.


Ethno choreographers consider several angles of analysis of folk dances:


● Functional analysis examines the contents of the dance, its function and its role in society

● Musical analysis studies the rhythmic, tempo, accents of music and support

● Morphological analysis studies the construction rules, the relationship between music and dance, movement components, dynamics, spatial occupancy of dance and dancers

● Structural analysis studies the kinetic elements that make up a dance, a figure, a series of steps, one step. It tries to break into a dance indivisible units, such as linguistics phoneme
