Sat 5/25 Hambo Workshop

The Swedish folk-dance "hambo" is a lovely couples' turning dance that's well worth having in your repertoire -- so you can join in after the contra dance break! We will learn the basics:

  • footwork to the beat
  • posture, connection and polska hold & frame
  • pivoting
  • leader's footwork
  • follower's footwork
  • leader and follower together

This workshop is for dancers who have basic proficiency with some other partner dancing like waltz, swing, tango, etc., or of course the hambo.

The follow-on contra dance will feature two hambos so you can practice.

Instructor: Andy Westbom

6:30 - 7:20 pm

Price: $4

    Andy has made a change on this workshop: it's for "dancers who have basic proficiency with some other partner dancing like waltz, swing, tango, etc., or of course the hambo".
