Zok - (Zhok):
A stunning and vivid Moldavian dance that starts with a slow tempo, and finishes with a dynamic movement. It ends in the line of the dancer’s shoulder that makes the dance look geometrically perfect. Although the power of the dance can make it seem deceiving, the movements are very simple but still maintain excitment.This dance has firm strength and rhythmic stomping. In this dance, the male dancers have the chance to show their most impressive trick.
It is a traditional Hungarian folk dance performed by our youth group. The name is derived from csárda- an old Hungarian term for tavern. It originated in Hungary, and was popularized by Roma music(Gypsy) bands in Hungary, and neighboring lands which includes Poland.The Czardasz is characterized by a variation in tempo: starting out slowly, and ending a very fast. The dancers are both male and female. Having the women dressed in traditional wide skirts, the skirt forms a distinctive shape when twirled.This dance includes a part where the men fancily show their various hand movements and soundly stomp on the floor with their black boots.
