Mom Bar from Andrea Sangiorgio

Mom Bar is an Armenian dance which I learned from Andrea Ostertag (Or -Institute Salzburg). It is published by Fidula Verlag in a collection of various Folk dances. Though being in 10/8 (3+2+2+3), which might sound challenging, this circle dance is easy to perform, placing the steps on the rst three macrobeats of the bar: RLR towards the right, LRL towards the centre of the circle, again RLR towards the right, and LRL outwards. The melody is repeated many times over a dynamic arch from p to f and back to p. Along with the simple steps – to be performed with closed eyes, ‘sensing’ the neighbours through the little ngers – the music gives a sort of meditative character to the experience of dancing and with this an intimate fusion within the group where the sense of self can temporarily and safely dissolve. It works well with children from 8-9 years old and, in my experience, provides a very good way to feel a sense of unity within the group.
