This, is one of the influences that left in our culture the old Romans us, and who today in day, ALWAYS practice in the celebrations of the Catalonian towns.

I hope that it is to you of interest:)




The origins of "Stick?s Dance" (Ball de Bastons / Baile de Bastones / Dance of Canes) are very difficult to have reference, nevertheless is the traditional dance older than it is even danced.


The first written references date from century XII, concretely year 1150 when during the banquet of the wedding of count Berenguer IV a dance became of canes.


Formerly, the soldiers, in the days of peace, to train in the handling of the swords and not to become damage did two sides i faced armed canes.


The symbology  of the dance of canes in Catalonia, is the interpretation of two sides fighting, making different movements i alternating the fight with the side crossing, always distinguished by the colors of its clothes.




 The canes, essential element for this dance, is the wood facts of alzina drought  have a length of about 40-50 cm and about 5 cm in thickness.


Even so, these characteristics are not generalizables since each "group" has proios canes with its particular characteristics


 Also the sound is an element that has special importance in this dance of canes, generated mainly by the blows of canes i the musical instruments, simultaneously that the blows in the ground, the shouts of the dancers...


Combinacion of all these elements forms own a sonorous frame concrete i of each dance.


All i to be a dance that in its origins single was danced by men, from years 60, the figure of the woman also this present At the moment it has but of 90 existing groups in Catalunya, and most of them, day after day for the continuity of our tradition and folklore work


Outside Catalunya, they have been making demonstrations in:

- Merignac (Burdeus, France),

- Cuba: Matanzas and Havana

- WinterbournDown (England).

- San Pedro de Gaillos (Segovia, Espa?a).

If you'll read the post about folk dances in the Spanish forum, you'll see that combatives dances similar to this exist in Latin America as well.
