Hebrew: מאריפוסה. Circle dance by Gadi Bitton, 2013.

The music is the Greek song "Έλα και πάμε" (Come, Let's Go) composed in 2005 by Dimitris Dekos with lyrics by Viki (Vicky) Gerothodorou. The Hebrew lyrics are by Doron Medalie.


When Mariposa first came out, there were two competing versions of the transition ("turko"): It could end with two open mayims, or with a second jump-box step. Videos existed of Gadi doing it both ways. As of this writing, it seems that the correct way is with the two jump-box steps; that is, the transition consists of the same steps twice through.
