This dance is a fragment of the soka dantza and has been extracted to be used as a greeting or symbol of respect. Although it has been used this way for decades, there is some controversy surrounding its use outside the context of the social ritual of the soka dantza. This dance is oftentimes performed at weddings, for example, as a dance of tribute as denoted by the song titles: Agur is Basque for greeting; Erreberentzia is Basque for reverence.  Originally by men, women dance this today as well.  As dancers know, it is easy to do, but hard to do well.
