I came across the next short film of Anton Withagen from Eindhoven (Netherlands). It gives an impression of the traditional folklore dance called Bailinho da Madeira (The dance of Madeira).

Now … do not go thinking that all inhabitants on the island of Madeira are dressed like this … and that they all love to dance this. If you think that …. then you also believe that all Dutch walks around in wooden shoes and are all living in windmills.
