INGURUTXOA: Bedaio (Gipuzkoa)


Ingurutxoa are traditional social circle dances for men and women, that in a sense is ritualized courtship from an earlier era.  This version is from the town of Bedaio in Gipuzkoa.
 
This dance was introduced and instructed by Joxema Mendiola, as part of NABO's Winter 2009 dance workshop
