Not sure whether this question will be allowed, since it's not strictly about ballet, (feel free to delete) but here goes...

I'm interested in different national dances, and I was wondering what the stories were behind them. It will be International Dance Day soon, and I just wondered what meanings different dances from different countries had.

I'm from Scotland, and I know preactically nothing about the origins of the country dancing I learned at school! I am going to find out though...:)

Can anyone please help with stories from their region?
