Lithuanian folk dance "Pupos" ("Beans")

The dance is created according to Lithuanian folk tale "A Bean" and  Lithuanian folk song "An Old Man was angry and scolded the children ...".
This is a playful children's dance  with simple shapes. The movements illustrate the text of the song: planting, watering, growing the bean, and the boys are playing the angry elderly, who chastise the children for picking beans.
