Note:
*Special thanks & appreciation to my good friend Zerlina Sofia Mohsin for her input and help in keeping the dance as true to the nuances of Joget as possible.
*Don’t be put off by the number of steps as they are mostly repetitive.
*To keep the stepsheet as uncluttered as possible, hand styling descriptions have been omitted. For hand styling, please refer to the video.

The Joget
Joget is a popular traditional dance in Malaysia. It is usually performed at cultural festivals, wedding celebrations and other social
functions.
The Joget's origin can been traced back to and is influenced by the Portuguese folk dance “Branyo”. It could have been brought to
the country after 1511 when Malacca* was colonized by the Portuguese.
The main characteristic of the Joget is the rhythm. It is accompanied by a fast tempo with duple and triple beat divisions. The dance
is usually accompanied by a violin or flute, a drum, a gong, or by a small western ensemble with solo voice. Foot movements of this
dance are more important than the hand movements although the hands add to the ‘flavour’ of the dance.
Male and female dance together ,either as a couple, or in groups of the same gender without any physical contact between the
genders.
*Malacca is the name of a state on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The state is regarded as the cradle of Malay civilization. This was where the >most important Malay empire, the Malacca Sultanate, flourished for about one hundred years, during the 15th century, before it was defeated by the Portuguese, which started the colonial era in the Malay peninsula lasting until the independence of the country in 1957.
