INGURUTXOA: Iribas (Nafarroa)

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 Leitza in Nafarroa.

This dance was introduced and instructed by Joxema Mendiola, as part of NABO's Winter 2009 dance workshop

1. Inguru handi.  Neskak sokan (kontrapas pausoarekin) & gero mutilak ateratzen
The women enter first in a line holding hands, then the men enter playing castenets.

2. Bikoteak zapitik helduta (contrapás pausoarekin) & Zubia (aurrena pasatzen da bigarren dijuana eta horrela atzesku aurrian geratzen da)  The couples go around holding a scarf, then go into a tunnel with the second couple going under and stopping in front of couple one so that the last couple ends in the front

3. Bikoteak zapitik helduta (contrapás pausoarekin) & Zubia (aurrena pasatzen da bigarren dijuana eta horrela aurresku bere tokian geratzen da)  Repeat the dance around with scarves and a tunnel.

4. Belauntzingo  Men dance the belauntzingo to the women

5. Inguru txiki  Couples dance around

6. Inguru txiki  Repeat the dance around
