Georgia: Traditional Dance: Racha

Racha, Georgia

As part of a Dance Friday series, here's the first of the regional dance videos from Caucasus Georgia - from the region of Racha.

I defy you to watch this video without smiling.

I think the dance from Racha is my favorite of the traditional Georgian dances. It's so vigorous, and the women's role is as interesting as the men's. 

And here's a reprise of my trip to Racha.
