Dancing in Houston, TX

Hi, All,

Bill was able to dance with the Houston International Folk Dance Group last week  He attended the Monday evening beginner class and Request dancing on Friday. He had a great time both nights.

Below is a link to an article a Rice University student wrote about her recent experience with the Houston Folkdancers.

It would be nice to see some more college students at our group!

Have a great week! Keep on dancing!

Have you danced with a child recently?

Another Day, Another Dance!

Mountain Playshop 2012

Hi, All,

Just wanted to say a few words about the Mountain Play Shop in North Carolina.

This was our first time attending and we were happy that we did.

Lee Otterholt was the teacher. He is an outstanding teacher!
Below are a list of the dances that  he taught.

Intermediate - Advanced
1 Pusta mladost                (Bulgaria - Macedonian region)
2 Syrtos kitrinou                (Greece)
3 Svatba                           (Bulgaria)
4 Kali tihi                          (Greece)

1 E Shukar Romnji            (Hungarian Rom)
2 C'est une jeunne Mariee  (Quebec)
3. Flor amorosa                (Brazil)
           4.Circular                       (Brazil)

The request dancing was nothing short of amazing!. So many talented and beautiful dancers doing a lot of the
old favorites!

Also, some very interesting dancers consented to interviews.  Every one has a story and I love hearing them!

Please support Mountain Play Shop and all the dance weekends around the country.

Please forward this blog to anyone who might be interested!

Keep on dancing!
Dance with a child every time you get a chance!
Another Day, Another Dance!
