A dance from the town of Čepelare in the Rhodope area of Bulgaria. I learned this dance from Anne-Lise Kryger in 2010, it was introduced into the network by Yves Moreau.
The music is in an even 4/4 rhythm. The steps come as three sets of quick-quick-slow-slow with one more slow step afterwards.
Start off in a line, left hand on your hip, right hand hooked through your neighbour's arm.
Facing slightly right of centre step to the side with the right (quick), then cross in front with the left (quick). Step to the side with the right (slow), then cross in front with the left (slow).
Facing centre take two small steps back, starting with the right (both quick), then take two steps forward, starting with the right (both slow).
Step forward with the right (quick), then bring the left up behind the righ calf (quick). Take two steps back, starting with the left (both slow).
Step a small step to the side with the left (slow).
The sequence plays through twice as an introduction, the dance starts with the singing.
