Pirin (Macedonian) folklore region

The dances of Pirin region are diverse and are divided into male and female. The female dances are mostly accompanied by songs, and are of moderate tempo. Those horo dances may be performed in a circle, semicircle, straight line, or by individuals. The male dances unfold in a faster pace thanks to the instrumental accompaniment. The movements are upwards, with bouncing, tripping, and springing. The slow dances feature characteristic light steps and sharp curves accompanied by breaks of several times, as well as spinning, kneeling, and bending down. These movements are saturated with passion, masculinity, and plasticity.
