Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bailarico (also known as bailharico) is a Portuguese folk dance. The pairs face each other without holding each other, and with their backs turned to the neighboring pair, form a circle. In the first part of the music, the circle rotates with the girls backing up and the boys going towards them. They take baby bouncing steps and both boys and girls raise their hands in the air. On the second part of the music, the pairs embrace and waltz by spinning in the same place, to one side first and then to the other.The earliest modern humans inhabiting Portugal are believed to have been Paleolithic peoples that may have arrived in the Iberian Peninsula as early as 35,000 to 40,000 years ago. Current interpretation of Y-chromosome and mtDNA data suggests that modern-day Portuguese traces largely a significant amount of these lineages to the paleolithic peoples which began arriving to the European continent between the end of the last glaciation around 45,000 years ago.
