Slovenian traditional music and dance is broadly part of the Alpine and Austro-Bavarian familly but with national characteristics and Balkan influences. Whilst this is a generalisation, a characteristic style would be that the upper part of the body is stiffly upright with little movement, the steps small and close to the ground and the knees slightly flexed. Men's movements may be more exhibitionist whilst women's more restrained.
