While in high school, a professional choreographer taught us Csárdás — Hungarian folk dance. I thought that the footwork and rhythm of Csárdás represented pinnacles of complexity. Recently, I was lucky to observe the Basque folk dance rehearsal in southwestern France. The group is preparing for the annual village festival. Repeating the moves was not a simple task and seemed just as elaborate as Basque language.
