The Egg Dance


The Egg dance was one of the earliest Saxon Medieval dances and, like the Carole, was performed during a period of festivity namely the Easter-tide festivities.

The  egg dance was derived from a traditional Easter game, in the egg dance eggs were laid on the ground or floor and the goal was to dance among them damaging as few eggs as possible.

Ο χορός αυγών ήταν ένας από τους αρχαιότερους σαξονικούς μεσαιωνικούς χορούς, και λάμβανε χώρα κατά τη διάρκεια μιας περιόδου γιορτών του παλατιού.

Ο χορός αυγών προήλθε από ένα παραδοσιακό πασχαλινό παιχνίδι, όπου  τοποθετούσαν  τα αυγά στο έδαφος ή στο πάτωμα και ο στόχος ήταν να χορέψουν ανάμεσά τους τους σπάζοντας όσον το δυνατόν λιγότερα αυγά.
