Maltese Bransle (Branle de Malte)

Circle Dance for as many as will (no partners)

The video that accurately reflected how we dance this in Rivenvale was taken down. The above video is a medley of bransles. Their Maltese Bransle is from 1:01 to 1:34 and is pretty close to how we dance it, except that we all go in together.


A1: Double left. Single right.
A2: Repeat.

B1: Take two steps toward the center, then 3 double-speed steps into the center. Right foot kick, then pivot on the right foot, ending facing outward with a left kick, then three small kicks.
B2: The same going out.


NOTE: Can be done holding hands, but usually done without.
