The wealth of rhythms and melodies and the great variety of figures, steps, and rapidity of movements demonstrated in the chain dances or HOROS, embody the creative genius handed down from generation to generation.Until recently, the HORO was danced every Sunday and holidays, · all over Bulgaria,byyoung and old. Even today, folk dancing is still a
beloved entertainment among Bulgarians on wedding days, at country fairs, regional
festivals, and big national festivities. Many dances are connected with various rituals and customs. Presently, in every region of Bulgaria, there are local HOROS and versions widely known typesdances which reflect the local taste and character of the people.
