Why is it called the D'Jampo dance?

 

 

Hi,

I think it is Danse D' Jambe, as in "de jambe", "of the leg".

I've seen it spelled D'Jampe. I've always (perhaps naively) thought it referred to jumping, since the choreography is so jump-heavy. That would be so cool if it had to do with the Bhutanese tradition of Jampe, though.

Yes, it's spelled D'Jampe but I was assuming it had lost the proper spelling as some things do... I could be wrong.

However, as you can see in the book excerpt, women were not allowed be part of the dances. But who knows... Maybe it was based on that.

I'm curious!
