Looking for Dance Info: "Broyges Tantz"

This is just a little bit off topic, but I remember seeing mention of 
dances over the last year as I have lurked out here in Washington 

I'm reading through books like Henry Sapoznik's "The Compleat 
Klezmer".  Last week I came across a tune called "Broyges Tantz".  He 
describes it as a dance of "Anger and  Reconciliation" and says that 
originally, it was a dance done by the mothers' in law at a wedding.

What might  that have looked like?
