Maltese Bransle

Also called Turkish Bransle

Circle Dance for as many as will (no partners)

The above video is a medley of bransles. Their Maltese Bransle is from 1:01 to 1:34 and is pretty close to how we dance it, except that we all go in together.
The dance often called “Maltese Bransle” in the SCA is Schiarazula Marazula.


A1: Double left. Single right.
A2: Repeat.

B1: Take two steps toward the center, then 3 double-speed steps into the center. Right foot kick, then pivot on the right foot, ending facing outward with a left kick. Bring your left foot down and end with three small kicks: left, right, left.
B2: The same going out.


NOTE: Can be done holding hands, but usually done without.
