Bedaioko Ingurutxo

Although the ingurutxo is a genre found mostly in western Nafarroa, this version is from neighboring Gipuzkoa. It is a social dance and is related to the soka dantza, but is done in pairs. This dance was taught in the United states by Joxema Mendiola as part of NABO's 2009 winter dance workshop.
