Since repetition is the essence of festive rites, each year, the people of Cetina participate in their fiestas – the series of celebrations in honor of their patron saint – with renewed excitement and hoping to repeat the same thrills. Their ritual dances combine religiosity with Baroque artifice, sanctity with laughter. The memories and testimonies of the danzantes and contradancerosthe dancers from various generations who have participated in these two dances–, offer an inside look at this celebration. The dance– pronounced “dan-thai”– and the contradanza are the day and night of the local fiestas in Cetina (Zaragoza), a village of some 700 inhabitants that has managed to preserve these two unique dances.
