We were walking by the Catedral de Barcelona on Sunday morning and had an opportunity to watch all of the folks participating in the traditional Catalonia La Sardana dance as they were leaving church.

First, a band sets up on the steps of the church to provide the music for the dance.  Then, people of all ages and skill form a circle and perform these elaborate steps in unison.  In many respects it reminds me of a square dance in Montana, but the music and the moves are strictly Catalan.

Seeing it on Sunday reminded me that we had taken a great video of this dance some years ago and posted it on YouTube.  So here it is for your to enjoy along with us.
