Primary school Spinut from Split, Croatia

 

















 Hello (“Evala” ) Europe,

We represent Primary school Spinut . It’s located in Split, the second-largest urban centre in Croatia.

“Evala” is the traditional greeting of our grandparents. 
Our school is situated in the center of Split. Our primary School 'Spinut' recently celebrated its fortieth anniversary. There are about 600 pupils aged between 7 and 14 years.   
Our pupils dance and sing in folk group. We started working 4 years ago because we wanted to enrich our children to original and ancient traditions through dancing.  
This school year the new students from 9 years were enrolled in a traditional dance group and taught his first dance steps.


Old Split dances 
The traditional dance in our city of Split was founded more than 100 years. It consists of three dances: "monfrina", "četvorka" and "šaltin polka" These dances are characterized by elegant moves, refined posture and softness of steps which show the influence of Western part of the Mediterranean.
