I love the variety of international folk dance music and dance. I love the challenge of learning a new dance with complicated rhythms and steps, and the joy of mastering it (or almost mastering it!). I love zoning out while dancing hand in hand to a simple dance (the kind that was once danced for hours around a bonfire). I love meeting the kind people that are part of the international folk dance community.
I started dancing in high school, danced at the river front festivals in Detroit, stopped while raising a family, met my second husband dancing and now dance 2-3 nights a week. I also run (10Ks-1/2 Marathons) and I find dancing more challenging!
