Bunjevac folk dance in: Croatia, Hungary, and Vojvodina/Serbia

Bunjevac folk dance: "Dances from Vojvodina are most similar to the Slavonian dances in their liveliness and activity. The Bunjevci Croats from the Bačka region are renowned for their beautifully embroidered female dresses, made from real silk from France, and the rattling sound made by the dancers' boots as they dance. In the Banat region, the men have their own competitive dance." Croatian dances - Wikipedia

Momačko kolo: "One of their signature dances is the Momačko kolo (the bachelors dance). The men in this dance are seen to be competing against each other to see who can exhibit the most challenging steps whilst at the same time impressing the single females. Their abilities are showcased when the small metal plates on their boots create musical and rhythmical effects while dancing." Folklorna Grupa Mladi Hrvati - Clifton Hill - Početna | Facebook

Vlach origins of Kraljice (Hora and Kolo): "Marian Wenzel wrote that the Romanians/Vlachs of North East of Serbia “still perform“ Hora funerary dance (kolo in Serbian) in which three female dancers carry bunches of flowers, while the leader carries a sword, which corresponds to some petroglyphs with hora depicted on some funerary monuments. This particular dance is believed to serve as a soul’s guide to the otherworld." Octavian Ciobanu. 2018. pp.8The heritage of Western Balkan Vlachs. The heritage of Western Balkan Vlachs | Octavian
