What dance is that?

Maculelê
Hula
Krakowiak
Reggaeton
Maculelê is a dance from Africa de­vel­oped in Brazil. When the leader gives the signal to begin playing Mac­ulelê, two people enter the circle, and to the rhythm of the atabaque, they begin striking their own and each other's sticks to­geth­er. On the first three beats, they strike their own sticks to­geth­er, making ex­pres­sive and athletic dance move­ments, and on each fourth beat, they strike each other's re­spec­tive right-­hand stick to­geth­er. In some capoeira schools, students perform maculelê using a pair of ma­chetes!
