The Sieve
 

A popular social dance from the Carpathian region. This dance is built on circles winding and weaving unexpected patterns. These directives are often called out by a “caller” (Square Dance fashion): ”Ladies on the left”, “Ladies to the right”, “Now take a turn”. If a person moved too slowly and didn’t get through the “sieve” they were automatically out of the dance.
