Ličko kolo (Dance from Lika)

Ličko kolo is one of the "nijemo" (silent) dances found in the Dinaric Mountain area of Croatia. They are termed silent dances because they are danced without instrumental accompaniment; the only sounds being when the feet make contact with the floor, the rhythmic "chink, chink, chink" of the women's coin necklaces, the dancers' voices as they sing, and the leader's calls.

Though not often danced these days, these silent dances are well remembered by the older Ličani and are perpetuated by folk dance performing groups. After the slow, singing part (Fig I), the leader signals figure changes for the faster tempo by means of shouted cues. These figures vary from village to village and from leader to leader as do their cues. The cues are not ritualized commands but rather are usually simple verb forms that vary according to the leader, the occasion, tradition, etc.
