Dancing is a big part of Macedonian weddings. Everyone knows the traditional dances and dances them all night long. Even as an American, I was expected to not only know these dances, but expected to lead them as I was the bride!
My host mom took this photo on September 18, 2009 on the final day of orientation week in Macedonia. We had just met our host parents for the first time, and in an effort to "break the ice" volunteers and their host families danced the oro.
