Kola dancing (3 o 3)

Kola dancing

Kola dancing, performed here at Henderson’s inaugural Tarara Day, is one of the most visible parts of Dalmatian culture. It is a form of circle dance where dancers hold hands or waists and spin around to the music of the tamburica orchestra. In Northland, kola was often performed during the 1960s and 1970s.
