The dance practice of the Banat Serbs has been significantly investigated within the ethnochoreology in Serbia. Although a lot of data have been recorded, ethnographic papers about dancing within the wedding ritual of the Banat Serbs are imprecise considering the positioning of the particular dances diachronically and synchronically. Beside that, intensive intercultural processes which have been shaping traditional practice of this multi-ethnic and multicultural region has been neglected. Using the ethnographic literature, and, in a greater measure, relying upon data collected within field research of this region (which I started in 1994), I will present comprehensive ethnography of dancing within the wedding ritual of the Serbs and focus on the identification of the intercultural drifts which shaped traditional cultural practice of the Banat.
