The Dances of the World's Peoples, Vol. 1: Dances of the Balkans and Near East

The first volume of this four-volume series released in 1957-1958 guides you through the folk dances of Greece, Rumania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Croatia with a dozen selections. According to producers Ronnie and Stu Lipner, the folk dances of the region are "vigorous beyond words" and "an essential part of everyday living. There are dances for every activity: Love Dances, Work Dances, Ritual Dances, War Dances." Liner notes include historical notes, descriptions, and instructions on the dances.
