Dans Plinn (1)
As one might expect… NOT a reel. The word Plin ("flat") comes from Breton ‘Plen’ (plain). In the literal sense, the term implies the idea of sobriety, continuity, regularity, and illustrates the fact that the body hardly moves and the feet are kept quite flat while stepping "barely higher than a cigarette paper." The name varies a lot: plin or plinn , dañs plon or plone (dance of Plounevez-Quintin ). The dance is also often referred to as a fañch, fañch being the name given to the headdress worn in a southern part of Brittany ( Corlay - Perret ). The plinn is believed to have originated as a fun way to beat earth floors or prepare threshing grounds in preparation for the annual battage.
