The tanac folk dance first emerged in the latter half of the 19th century. Zvonko Usmiani revived it after World War II, based on the stories and demonstrations of elderly citizens, thus preserving the almost forgotten customs in the town of Pag. The members of the Družina Culture and Arts Association perform the tanac, dressed in traditional attire, at various folklore festivals, during the carnival and other celebrations. The tanac is performed to the accompaniment of an instrument called the mišnice or mih (resembling a bag pipe), made from a sheep or goat hide with a tube (mouthpiece) through which air is blown and a dvojnice (akin to a wooden flute) at the bottom.
