The Best House Guest Ever

Folk dancing in Romania is a beloved art, and there are many many kinds of astounding dances. One of our favorite is the fecioreste — a foot slapping, heel clicking, leg rotating Transylvanian “lad dance.” The boot-slapping element of the fecioreṣte may have its root in military recruiting dances of the Austrian-Hungarian empire. The guy in this video, which features three Transylvanian dances that sure seems to be taking place in someone’s apartment hall, will clap, stomp and military-boot-slap his way into your heart.
