Gankino horo (Ганкино хоро), “Ganka’s dance”, is a Bulgarian folk dance written in 11 (undecuple) = 2+2+3+2+2 time (typically 11/16 or 11/8) similar to kopanitsa or krivo horo. The name gankino seems to be used mostly in northern Bulgaria (N.W. and north central). The basic gankino horo is a three-measure dance using the step structure also common in the dances: Dunavsko (Danubian Pravo), Povarnoto (also known as Devetorka in Macedonia) and Eleno Mome.

The three measures comprise a seven-step grapevine, starting right foot to the right, L cross in front - two measures. The third measure is a three-step grapevine to the left: left steps left, R cross in back. L to the L.
