In general, especially for Japanese, "folkdance" reminds you of an event of the field day. But here in Sweden, "folkdans" means a kind of national dance, with many variations for each province. As to "folkdans", it could be characterized with traditional dance costume, basic steps and musics.

I'd like to enrich this thread with information which I can collect as possible. Maybe it'll contain introducing dance musics and relevant materials, of course with my pictures!
