ROMANIA How to dance Brāul Male line dance. Brāul means belt, as formerly dancers were rigidly holden together by the belt. This restriction allowed only half-circle or short line formations. Nowadays it is rare in Romania, dancers hold by shoulder or by crossed hands. Brāuls used to be male line dances but now there are rather mixt.
According to the area there are from 3 types, Carpatian Brauls (holding shoulder), Danubian Brauls (holding crossed hands) and Banat Brauls (holding shoulder). Generally speaking, West Europe dances go to the left whereas those of Balkans and East Europe go to the right. Video see www.youtube.com
