Kalesh Kate and Djevojcica

I hope everyone is safe and keeping warm this winter.  Dancing keeps me warm physically and spiritually.  I know that is the same with many of you.

This month Bill taught Kalesh Kate as taught by Nikolaj Tsvetkov.  The following video shows Nikolaj leading the line in this dance. We learned the dance from him on his US tour in Washington, DC.

Another  Day, Another Dance,
Happy Dancing!

Bannerman Thanksgiving Camp 2014

The first installment of the Bannerman Thanksgiving Camp 2014 is being featured on the Charlottesville Public Access TV Station Channel 13. It is aired at the following times the whole month of February.  Tuesdays at 2:30, Wednesdays at 5:00, and Saturdays at 1:00  You can stream it live at those times by clicking the silver TV in the upper right corner.

As I've mentioned before, Share the Joy, dance with a child! The Bannerman Thanksgiving Camp is a place where you can experience the joy of dancing with all ages!  Check it out for next year, You won't regret it!

The Holly Mead Elementary after school program invited me to teach some Icelandic dances last month.  We danced Vikivaki as taught  by Michael Hamblin at the 2012 Pourparler, and at the 2013 Mainewoods Camp by Sanna Longden. We also danced Vorvindar Glaoir as danced in the folowing youtube video.

Happy Dancing!
Another Day, Another Dance!
