Instructed by Emilyn Stam

Get moving and travel around Europe in this social dance workshop! Every day we will learn the basics from various European social folk dance traditions. This kind of dancing is non-performance oriented, and is open to people who have no experience dancing. We will learn Ukrainian village dances, Balkan ‘kolo’ line dances, energetic mixer dances and groovy couple dances from western Europe, plus Breton chain dances from the west coast of France. This class will be accompanied by live music! Attending this workshop will prepare you and give you a head start to the fun that will be had in our evening dances.
