    Message from Nancy:

    "This is just a reminder that our 2nd class of the Spring Session will be held tomorrow , April 19th, from 11:00 am - I:00 pm ; please try and arrive at 10:45 so we can start class on time. The remaining classes for the session are May 10th and May 24th.

    Also a reminder to bring black socks to dance in , or ballet or jazz slippers. These will allow for free movement of your feet . Also there is water in the lobby, but feel free to bring your own. There is no other food or drink allowed in the dance space .

    I am planning to teach a Yalli type dance. My versions of both Yalli and Gazareh are from our Kafkaz Company repertoire, recorded for performance purposes for us in Baku, by the Philharmonic orchestra. So they REALLY speed up towards the end. I am wondering if anyone has mellower versions !"
