Um bókina
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Faroese dance (føroyskur dansur) is the national chain dance of the Faroe Islands, accompanied by kvæði, the Faroese ballads. The dance is a mediaeval ring dance, which only survived in the Faroe Islands, while in other European countries it was banned by the church, due to its pagan origin. The dance is danced traditionally in a circle, but when a lot of people take part in the dance they usually let it swing around in various wobbles within the circle. When dancing there are a few rules. One is that your right hand must overlap the left hand of the one next to you while moving your feet two paces to a side and one pace back. The side is chosen by the skiparin, captain. The skiparin is the one who sings and must know all the verses, while the people who are dancing with him in the circle join in at the chorus.
