The 'Azeri Dantza' or Dance of the Fox, consists of a game between 18 dancers, which seized a rope and go with cow bladders in the hands trying to circle people who walk the streets to hit them with the bladders. A group of musician walks the streets playing a melody that increases noticeably the rhythm when the rope gets closer.

It begins around 09:00 in the morning at the main square, where the town council is located, and runs through the central streets of the old village. Some house and shops at Main and Urumea street have exits on both sides and the rope passes through one street to another, disappear by houses, shops, playgrounds, portals... and reappears by surprise, emulating a fox trying to haunt a prey. This seems to be, apparently, the reason to name it Azeri Dantza.
