The sorgin-dantza is danced in Antzuola on Carnival Sunday. The group is made up of eight dantzaris, four dressed as men and four as women. The following characters take part in the performance with the dantzaris: kapitaina (the captain), hartza (the bear), domadorea (the tamer) and tximinoa (the money). They wander through the streets of the village performing the sorgin-dantza at various points along the route. This dance is very similar to the Oria sorgin-dantza.
The Antzuola trokeo-dantza is very similar to the Gipuzkoa brokel-dantza, but there are also various differences. The Antzuola trokeo-dantza is performed on the third Saturday of July after the procession of Moors and Christians. The Antzuola trokeo-dantza includes the following dances: makil txiki dantza (Dance of the Small Sticks), uztai txiki dantza (Dance of the Small Arches), makil haundi dantza (Dance of the Long Sticks) and zinta-dantza (Ribbon Dance). The trokeo-dantza group has twelve dantzaris and a leader.
The soka-dantza is danced in Antzuola on St. John’s Eve, June 23rd. The members of the Oin-arin dance group first of all perform the St. John’s dance and then the soka-dantza. The third weekend of July the Antzuola fiestas are held, where the members of the town council dance the aurresku on the first day. Accompanied by the dantzaris of the Oin-arin dance group, the town councillors dance this dance in the square at 20.15 hours.
