Ethno-choreographically analysis of changes in the dance repertoire and expression of women from Telgárt village, with focus on female circle dance
The influence of commercialization via mass media, as well as the contact between two ethnic groups, has resulted in an ongoing modification of the dance repertoire and dance expressions of Romani and non-Romani village communities in the Horehronie region (Central Slovakia). The aim of the study is an ethno-choreographically analysis of changes in dance praxis of women during the second half of the 20th century until present in the village Telgárt. The author places a strong focus on formal and structural analysis of the dance called the „circle“ which plays a crucial role in the dance repertoire of women from both ethnic communities. The analysis and synthesis of „dance style“ as a syncretic union of its current and archaic forms is also a part of the study.
