The origin of this dance can be traced back to the times of sword fighting. Now it's being danced in groups of 8, 12, 16, 20 or 24 people with sticks in both hands. The dance can be seen during many street festivals in Catalonia, like Sant Jordi Day on April 23, Catalonia Day on September 11 or La Merce on September 24 or summer solstice day.
